Long winter is inspiring many to head out of town

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- The long, cold winter we've had is inspiring many people to pack their bags and head somewhere warmer.

Some local travel agencies have been seeing more people wanting to get away in recent weeks. Despite an increase in people traveling, agents say there are plenty of options still available for those looking to get out of town.

"Any time that a person has an extra day off are popular weeks for people to travel, and so if people can stay away from those weeks, then I think there's plenty of inventory for people to take a look at," says Scott Mast, co-owner of Burkhalter Travel.

Mast says he's seen new customers asking for his help now. The most popular destinations right now include Florida, Hawaii and the Caribbean.
