 STATE TOURISM DIVISION REPORTS
 SEATTLE, Sept. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Washington is the ninth most popular state in the country for fall getaways, according to the Travel Industry Association's (TIA) Travelometer, a new quarterly forecast of what American travelers think about the U.S. economy and how it will relate to their travel plans.
 Of the 149 million U.S. adult travelers, 24 percent (or 36.4 million) plan to travel more during September, October or November of 1992 than they did during the fall of 1991. Washington is ranked ninth out of the 10 most desirable fall destinations along with the states of Florida and California.
 "These findings match our own research results," said John Savich, director, Tourism Development Division. "People are more and more interested in off-season getaways.
 "That's why Washington state is now producing a set of seasonal guides that highlight off-season getaway ideas," Savich added.
 The Washington State Fall Field Guide is available by calling 800-544-1800, or by writing the Tourism Development Division, P.O. Box 42500, Olympia, WA 98504-2500.
 Travelometer's ranking of the top 10 destinations includes Florida, California, Hawaii, Texas, Nevada, Colorado, Arizona, Washington, D.C., Washington state and Illinois.
 Travelometer forecasts travel trends by interviewing people who have taken a trip during the past year to determine their travel plans for the upcoming season. It is a service of the Travel Industry Association, a non-profit based in Washington, D.C.
