1 in 10 Americans have never left their home state, study finds

Like Jasmine in Aladdin — many Americans want to see a whole new world. Which makes sense, considering more than half have been to 10 U.S. states at most.

That’s according to a OnePoll study conducted for Victorinox — investigating the travel habits of 2,000 Americans. Eleven percent of people polled had never even left their home state. But traveling to a different state is way more common than traveling to another country, which nearly two in five people polled said they’ve never done.

And it’s not from a lack of desire. More than three-quarters want to get their eat-pray-love on and travel more. So why don’t they?

For some, it’s about time or money, while others don’t feel equipped for serious travel. In fact, 3 in 10 said they don’t have the right gear for it. Still, most don’t want that to get in the way — since around 10 percent don’t feel like traveling. I guess a few of us have seen Planes, Trains and Automobiles a few too many times.
