‘Digital detox’ becomes a vacation trend

News

(ABC/GMA) – More people are searching for trips that help them get away from it all and disconnect.

No cell service and no Wi-Fi are starting to mean no vacancy.

It’s a concept called ‘digital detox vacations.’

Gadgets are turned off, taken away, or just not connecting to the internet.

People are spending up to $2,000 a night to shut it all out.

It’s not just for adults.

With growing rates of anxiety and depression in teens linked to devices, unplugging can be good for kids too.
