Everything You Need to Know About Tourism
Summer has (unofficially) arrived. Which means it's time to start thinking about that most cherished of warm-weather traditions: summer vacation. Whether you're trying to figure out where to go or the best way to save a few dollars getting there, Mental Floss has got you covered.
In this all-new edition of Scatterbrained, presented by Discover, Mental Floss editor-in-chief Erin McCarthy and friends are taking you on a tourism trip around the world. They'll take a look at some of the fastest-growing travel destinations (number one just might surprise you), pay tribute to the supersonic power of the Concorde, figure out how airport codes work (and how Iowa's Sioux Gateway Airport came to embrace the fact that it's known as SUX), detail the strange symptoms of Paris Syndrome, and offer up some helpful tips on how to save money (and your sanity) while traveling.
Get ready to experience some serious wanderlust and watch the full video below.
