3 hot travel trends for 2018

From barns to cruises, trips to consider this year.

— -- If one of your 2018 resolutions is to travel more, we’ve got you covered. Here are a few of the top travel trends for the year ahead.

Trend 1: Barn stays.

Don't worry, this isn’t sleeping with the cattle. Refurbished barns are all the rage in vacation rentals – up more than 50 percent since last year according to HomeAway, the popular vacation rental website. Some of these barns – located all over the U.S. – are waterfront, have media rooms, pool tables and more. But the best part is the price. These barn stays can be had from as little as $10 per person, per night.

Trend 2: The skip-gen vacation

We’ve all heard about the multi-generational vacation by now, but gaining in popularity is the skip-gen vacation. This is basically grandparents and grandkids taking trips of a lifetime together. As boomers retire and prioritize family time, these vacations satisfy both goals.

Trend 3: Wellness at sea.
