Americans turning to remote areas for vacation

Written by Staff Writer at CNN

A relatively new phenomenon that’s causing big trouble in certain areas of the world: a rising number of people vacationing in remote wilderness areas and finding themselves unable to get off the property.

In 2017, for instance, the number of people staying in wilderness areas in the US and Canada grew by 31% compared to 2016, according to a report released by Harvard’s Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society

The report also found that between 2005 and 2014 the number of people camping permanently in wilderness areas increased by 17% as compared to an increase of only 10% in urban areas.
