Travel Leaders' newly released 2012 Travel Trends Survey shows that most travelers have no plans to cut back on their vacations in the new year. More than 91 percent of Travel Leaders owners, managers and frontline travel experts throughout the U.S. said that their clients plan to spend as much or more on vacation travel in 2012 as they did in 2011.

Actual booking data gathered by the Travel Leaders survey also shows that U.S. travelers remain consistent in their most-wanted vacation destinations. Eight of the top ten domestic destinations for 2012 were also on the top ten list for 2011, and the top two choices - Las Vegas, Nev., and Orlando, Fla. - remain the same.

The enduring popularity of Las Vegas is due to its fabulous opportunities for gaming - as well as golfing, clubbing and shopping - plus the ease of booking a vacation there. After all, there are more than 120,000 hotel rooms to choose from, more than half of them along the famed Las Vegas Strip.
