Kids are lots of fun, but they definitely change the vibe of a vacation! Sometimes, creating lasting memories for the little ones comes at your own expense, and that’s assuming you even have children. Whether by design or by circumstance, some folks don’t have kids—and they prefer to travel without the distraction of unsupervised children in hotels, restaurants, and attractions.
And there’s no denying it—childfree travel is trending in a major way. From childfree flights to adults-only resorts and cruises, the travel industry is paying attention. We scraped three years of conversations from Twitter and Instagram, looking at relevant hashtags related to taking vacations without kids (think terms like #childfree, #DINK, #nokids, #babymoon, #vacation, and #travel). More than ever, people are opting for childfree getaways when they plan their vacations—in fact, from 2016 to 2017, social media chatter about childfree travel literally doubled!
