Best Summer Activities Courtesy of W Originals

Part of my business in blogging is being aware of the trends and movements that are going on out there. If it has to do with family, food or shopping, I want to be in the know. Today it is the latter category I am focusing on. W Magazine has provided an Insider & shopping writer like myself with some new and exciting statistics for Summer 2012 that I would like to share with you. Shopping ranks in the top five activities that people are most looking forward to this summer. As the temps are rising. shoppers are anxious to find every deal under the sun. Winter shopping is done inside malls and boutiques that have the perks of keeping us cozy during the holidays. Now that the winter chills have passed, it is the perfect time to change it up. Many venues I've visited like the gorgeous Shops at La Cantera in Texas, The Bravern or Redmond Town Center in the Pacific Northwest and most recently The Cashel Mall in New Zealand prove outdoor shopping is popular all over the world no matter the season. The fresh air and luxury finds create the perfect balance for that smart shopping adventure.

Here is the full breakdown of the Most Anticipated Activities of the Summer from the W Survey:

Traveling    26%
Family and Friends    23%
Going to the Beach    18%
Shopping    14%
Concerts    10%
Movies    3%
Enjoying Time Off    4%
