Top 7 Places to Travel This Summer

summer travel

Summer is just around the corner, and, more than ever, we’re ready to start traveling again. The past year or so has been extremely challenging for everyone.

And although traveling might not be on everyone’s list right now, some people can’t wait to get back out there and explore.

So, for all those vaccinated and unvaccinated ready to ditch their backyard for more intriguing destinations, we’ve got a few tips. Whether you want to fly somewhat close to your home or explore further than that, this list will introduce you to the top seven places you should visit this summer. Without further ado, let’s dive in.

Puerto Rico

If you don’t want to get stuck on a long flight but still want to get out of mainland USA, Puerto Rico should be at the top of your list. Interestingly, Puerto Rico is the third most-booked summer destination, according to Priceline. What’s more, those living on the East Coast have been widely researching this destination, or so says Orbitz.

Even more so, Skyscanner’s data shows that more people are interested in visiting San Juan now than in 2019. This has moved Puerto Rico higher on the list of the most booked US summer destinations. The tiny Caribbean island is currently ranked ninth, climbing up an astonishing 19 places on the board.

Florida

If you’re one of the few Americans who still haven’t been to Florida, this is your chance. According to Priceline, Florida is a popular destination for summer 2021 as it doesn’t give out the domestic vacation vibe. The travel agency’s most booked spot is Orlando, while Disney World doesn’t fall far behind in the entertainment sector.

If you don’t want to spend your day at a theme park, Florida has a lot more to offer. Some of the top searches for Northeast American travelers include Fort Lauderdale, Tampa, and Key West. Fort Myers, Fort Walton Beach, and Sarasota are also popular, especially for July 2021.

Not surprisingly, airfares might have something to do with Florida being a popular summer destination. Namely, a round-trip flight goes for about $232 to $262, according to Priceline.

Las Vegas

If Florida is not your cup of tea, but you still don’t want to leave the States, Las Vegas is up and running once again. Almost all fine dining and entertainment venues are open after this turbulent year, While staying in a hotel, you can access the best paying online casinos to check withdrawal limits, the most diverse range of payment methods, casino bonuses, a well-curated list of the best casinos and many Americans are looking forward to spinning the reels once again.

Interestingly, Priceline claims Las Vegas is its second most-booked destination this year and the second most-searched Memorial Day destination on Skyscanner. Apparently, Dallas and Atlanta’s residents have booked the most flights to Sin City.

Flight fares might have something to do with that, as most flights from bigger cities are approximately 20% lower than in 2019. That brings us to an average price of $208 for a round-trip flight to Vegas.

Hawaii

Want to stay in the US but dip your toes in crystal blue waters? Hawaii is the place to go. Two of Hawaii’s most beautiful islands are on Priceline’s 15 most booked destinations for the summer of 2021 — Maui and Oahu. The former ranks as the 14th most booked destination, while the latter comes in at number five.

On the other hand, Honolulu has jumped a few places and became the eighth most searched destination, according to Skyscanner.

Interestingly, Hawaii remained a popular travel destination even during 2020. The strict COVID-19 protocols didn’t stop a lot of people from getting their summer tans. The state will probably ease up on the requirements for vaccinated travelers, though, but we still don’t have any official information about that.

Mexico

If you want to leave the United States, we suggest the closest popular destination — Mexico. Although perhaps not the international getaway you have dreamed of, it’s still an international trip. Some of the most popular resorts for this summer are still Cancun and Cabo San Lucas., especially for travelers from the West Coast. 

According to Priceline, Cancun is currently the sixth most popular summer destination for Americans. Surprisingly, the Yucatan hotspot of Cancun jumped to the second spot on Skyscanner’s list for the most-searched summer destinations in 2021. It was ranked 19th in 2019.

Egypt

This is what we mean when talking about international destinations. Egypt might be on the other side of the world, but many Americans are more than willing to spend more than half a day on a flight there.

Egypt has been on many people’s bucket lists for a long time, so it’s not surprising that Americans are taking advantage of the country’s loose COVID restrictions. Still, you will need to present a negative test to enter.

Skyscanner reports Cairo is the tenth most-booked Memorial Day vacation for US residents. The destination is popular for groups, both families and friends, climbing a stunning 15 places on this list.

What’s more, the new Grand Egyptian Museum in Giza will finally open this June after countless delays.

Dakotas

In case you’re still not ready to mingle with other tourists or endure long plane rides, the great outdoors is not going anywhere. Some lesser-known states and parks are trending for the summer of 2021, so why not give them a shot? 

States like North and South Dakota, specifically Fargo and Sioux Falls, are some of the top destinations for Americans this year. According to Orbitz, Fargo is currently the most-booked July 2021 destination, while Sioux Falls is fifth.

The two destinations have the highest jump in rankings compared to 2019, skipping more than 100 spots.
