Abstract

Within the context of diaspora studies, immigration, assimilation, and return travel, this study examines the relationships between elements of cultural integration and travel characteristics among Turkish-Americans living in the state of Arizona. The findings suggest that integration activities and characteristics have little bearing on immigrants' travel patterns to the homeland, with the exception of length of stay and the types of accommodations used while in Turkey.
