It turns out a lot of people are looking to travel at some point in their lives. According to a new study, the majority of people who have a bucket list want to travel.

The study, conducted by AARP, found that 83 percent of baby boomers, 76 percent of Gen Xers, and 69 percent of millennials who have a bucket list have at least one travel-related items on that list. Of those goals, the majority are focused on a specific destination.

“Almost half of all Bucket List Trips are focused on the destination overall, versus a specific activity or attraction at the destination,” AARP found.

On average, baby boomers have eight different destinations on their list, while millennials have 15 and Gen Xers have 12 destinations on their list. Most people expect to take their next trip in the next two to five years.

Baby Boomers’ dream domestic destinations include Hawaii, Alaska, California, Arizona, Nevada, New York, Florida, and Pennsylvania.
