What activities top today's travel bucket lists?

Flying first class (30 percent)
Researching their heritage (26 percent)
Setting foot on all seven continents (24 percent)
Taking an African safari (21 percent)
Hiking a famous trail or mountain (18 percent)
Visiting a place in every time zone (17 percent)
Filling every page of their passport (17 percent)
Bungee jumping or sky diving while on vacation (14 percent)

Curiosity and ambition abound with today's millennial travelers. As compared to those 35 and up, millennials (18-34) have a greater sense of adventure and stronger desire to experience every bucket list item included in the survey. The most notable differences come with the adventurous activities, including setting foot on all seven continents (37 percent vs. 17 percent), bungee jumping or skydiving (26 percent vs. 6 percent) and hiking a famous mountain or trail (29 percent vs. 11 percent). But, with everything from taking a safari to researching their heritage, travelers want more out of their vacations than just a pretty beach.
