Updated

Yes, it’s been quite a year (or two!) for all of us, what with the pandemic and all. With movement restrictions put in place all over the globe, traveling was pretty much out of the question. However, in the past couple of months, more and more people have been getting vaccinated and infection cases continue to dwindle down. With that, travel restrictions are beginning to ease up.

This is the reason seasonal destinations like Orange County, CA, New York City, and Arlington, VA, are trending on Airbnb at the moment. Meanwhile, college football towns like Ann Arbor, MI, Eugene, OR, Lincoln, NE, and Auburn, AL, are topping the list as well. As for international destinations, US travelers are searching for something different–traditional Italian dammusos, Grecian Cycladic homes, or quaint English shepherd’s huts.

Are you planning a trip yourself? You should definitely check these lists out and create wonderful memories with your loved ones this holiday season.

What's trending on Airbnb?

  • Seasonal destinations and college football towns
  • At the top of wishlists are cozy cabins
  • US travelers are searching for unique international stays
