A new survey conducted by OnePoll for the West Virginia Department of Tourism for “World Tourism Day” found that 68% of Americans always go on vacations to the same kinds of places.

However, they're not afraid to shake things up a bit on the same old spots.

A little more than half of Americans (55%) prefer to incorporate new experiences and sights at these comfortable destinations, and 78% are likely to take a chance on visiting an entirely new destination.

According to the New York Post, northeasterners are the “least likely” to stray from their favorite kinds of vacation destinations.
