10% Of Americans Have Never Left Their Home State

We are going to go out on a limb here and say that there’s probably a lot of New Year’s resolutions based around travel. Why, you ask? A recent study found that 1 in 10 Americans have never left the comfort of their home state. For those non-mathematicians out there, that’s 10% of Americans who have remained in the state they were born in for their entire lives.

The poll, conducted by Victorinox, also found that 50% of Americans have only been to 10 U.S. states or less in their lifetime. Of course, it is much easier and much less expensive to travel to a different state. That’s probably part of the reason only 2 in 5 of those polled said they had traveled internationally.

What that leaves us with is 3/4’s of those polled saying they want to travel more. But, they either lack the financial ability to travel or they don’t feel prepared or well enough equipped to do so. Where do you fit in compared to this Victorinox poll?
