TASTE News Service, April 21, 2020 – All Americans are doing their best to endure unprecedented lockdown conditions during the current circumstances.

At Taste Washington Travel (and at Taste California Travel, too) we realize that real travel experiences aren’t an option today. But we’re tired of reading press releases about virtual this and virtual that.

  • Between April 6 and April 12, American travelers conducted a large number of searches for trips taking place between May 4 and May 10—there was a 47% week-over-week change for this May timeframe”
