New from HomeAway

What makes a vacation memorable? For the first time ever, scientists have uncovered the factors which influence lasting vacation memories.

HomeAway partnered with Professor Art Markman and researchers at the University of Texas to design a first-of-its-kind study which investigated factors such as destination type, cost of vacation, group type, work habits, amount of time spent on mobile devices, and social media use to determine their impact on the memorability of vacations.
