There's been a lot of focus on Mars the past few years, quite frankly it's bored me as a Tourist destination and even as a science destination. It sounds more like a javelin throw in the Olympics, How far can you throw ?
I can understand the attraction to some, it's a retro-space race, a do it like-the-1960's nostalgia. We got to the Moon first, now what?, play golf? Well yeah, kinda.
It takes about 2 weeks to do a round trip to the (Earth's) Moon, it takes about 2 years to do a round trip to Mars.
That means you can have a typical 2 week Earth annual holiday/vacation break on the Moon, or get bored out of your mind groaning 'Are we there yet?' going to Mars and back.
On a Moon Holiday, you'd leave your local airport in a space-plane that would gradually climb up to the edge of Earth's atmosphere. Why rush ? Take in the most spectacular views of Earth you'll ever see and take in every moment of it. Take video's of it, stream it live online as you go, enjoy !
