In recent years, the gap between Caucasian and African-American travelers has lessened, making the African American sector of the U.S. population one of the fastest growing markets in the travel industry, according to the bi-monthly publication Black Meetings and Tourism. Based on surveys, polls and U.S. Travel Association research, Associate Publisher/Editor Gloria Herbert reports African Americans encompass 45% of the $125 billion in total revenues produced by multicultural travel. Not to mention, the economic impact of African-American leisure travelers is $48.3 billion. With the travel uptick among black Americans, as well as the blogger boom, has come a rise in unique voices weighing in on a bevy of travel topics—everything from must-have travel gadgets and sites to frequent to restaurant favorites and non-touristy sites to see.
