Spring break is just around the corner, and these are the most popular destinations that American travelers are headed to this season.

According to recent data from the travel booking platform Hopper, these are the most-booked destinations in the U.S. this spring.

South Beach Miami

Unsurprisingly, several of the top destinations this spring are located in the Sunshine State. Florida has always been a hotspot for spring breakers.

Some of the other trending destinations are located out West and in the South.

Here are the most popular U.S. destinations for this spring:

1. Orlando, Florida

Orlando is a great destination to visit during the spring. The most popular attractions in Orlando are the theme parks, namely Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando.

As someone who has been to Orlando's theme parks dozens of times, I have to say that spring can be an extremely crowded time to visit, especially around the Easter holidays. My favorite time to visit Disney and Universal is in May when the spring break crowds have died down.

Of course, there's plenty to do in Orlando aside from theme parks. The Central Florida city is becoming known as a trendy destination for dining, culture, and nightlife.

2. Las Vegas, Nevada

The second most popular destination in the U.S. this spring is Las Vegas. Nicknamed Sin City, Las Vegas definitely lives up to its reputation if you are looking for a crazy spring break trip.

This city is famous for its wild nightlife and casinos where you can try your luck all night long. But there's another side to Las Vegas if that's not your style.

Las Vegas can also be a family-friendly destination with lots of entertainment and shows for all ages. There's the underrated Arts District to explore and breathtaking nature like the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, just a short drive away.

3. Miami Beach, Florida

Miami Beach is the quintessential spring break destination. This beachfront city is actually separate from Miami — but it's just a short drive away from Miami and connected by several bridges.

If you're looking for a beach trip, you can't go wrong with Miami Beach this spring. The main strip is lined with high-rise hotels and condos, and the beach itself has white sand and clear turquoise-blue water.

There are tons of opportunities for dining and nightlife, and you can easily get to Miami for a dose of arts and culture in the Wynwood Art District or Little Havana.

4. Fort Lauderdale, Florida

The third Florida city among the most popular destinations in the U.S. this spring is Fort Lauderdale. Located about 30 miles north of Miami, Fort Lauderdale has become increasingly popular with spring breakers in recent years.

It's a great alternative to Miami if you are looking for a slightly different vibe. Fort Lauderdale tends to be more laidback than Miami, and it's easier to get around.

The Las Olas area is the best place to stay to be close to restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. The beaches in Fort Lauderdale are also excellent and spring is the perfect time to go for amazing weather.

5. Nashville, Tennessee

Finally, one of the top trending destinations this spring is Nashville, Tennesse. Nashville has become an incredibly hot destination recently.

Known as the country music capital of the U.S., the city is home to attractions like the Grand Ole Opry and the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Nashville is also becoming known as a foodie destination (it's a great place to try some authentic Southern comfort food!) and you can't leave without experiencing the crazy nightlife on Bourbon Street at least once.
