It is interesting that people care what other people do, even where they go on vacation. So what if people prefer to stay close to home on vacation? Is it their life, or yours. There is nothing sad about somebody who lives Cali staying in California in their time off from work.

There are people who never leave smaller states, there are people who live in the Boston area, spend summers down Cape Cod and never leave MA.
There are people that live in Northern Maine or Alaska or Central Montana that are extremely isolated and only have logging roads connecting then to the outside world.

Usually, it's the poorer people who do that though. They don't have much choice.

It is rare to find people with a lot of money who never travel outside of their state.

Maybe they have no reason to leave their state because everything they need is already there.

I'm a Texan who'd love to visit all 50 states but get it that some people don't want to leave. If they ever want to vacation, Texas has beaches, mountains, deserts, and big cities. But if say... an Iowan said they never wanted to leave, I'd start to raise some eyebrows...

There are more than a few New Englanders like this. My partner is from Gloucester, Mass (a city and area which is among my very favorites btw) and it cracks me up how many proudly proclaim that they've never been to Boston- 30 minutes down the road lol!

Strangely enough. It does. I know people who don't visit other parts of this state, let alone go elsewhere.
Why? They see no need.
