Where are most Americans traveling in 2024? These are the most popular destinations in the U.S. and abroad for the new year!
According to the travel booking platform Hopper, these are the top destinations that travelers are monitoring prices for in 2024.
Most Popular Domestic Destinations
These are the most popular destinations in the U.S. right now. The trend for 2024 is sunny, warm hotspots that offer diverse activities for every type of traveler.
1. Las Vegas, Nevada
Las Vegas was recently named the most popular destination in the United States. Although it's nicknamed Sin City, there's a lot more to Las Vegas than its old reputation of gambling and casinos.
These days, Las Vegas is one of the entertainment capitals of the United States, and there are plenty of family-friendly things to do. You can also discover stunning natural beauty just outside the city, like Red Rock Canyon, which is less than 30 minutes from Downtown Las Vegas.
2. Orlando, Florida
Another of the top destinations in the U.S. is Florida. This city in the Sunshine State is most famous for being home to Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Orlando, and other theme parks. And that's what attracts many of the 70 million plus visitors that came to Orlando in 2023.
But Orlando is swiftly becoming known for more than just theme parks. It has a burgeoning dining and nightlife scene that's a lot of fun, as well as thriving arts and culture.
3. Miami, Florida
Miami is breaking all-time tourism records, and it's not hard to see why. This South Florida hotspot is known for its excellent beaches, like South Beach.
It's also one of the top destinations in the U.S. for foodies, with lots of diverse influences. Additionally, Miami is a major hub for culture and the arts.
The annual Art Basel festival draws huge crowds to Miami every winter, and other art-focused events happen throughout the entire year.
Most Popular International Destinations
If you're dreaming of traveling abroad in the new year, these are the most popular international destinations right now according to Hopper. The warm and sunny vacation destination trend continues here, with one notable exception.
1. Cancun, Mexico
Cancun remains the number one international destination for Americans going into 2024. It's easy to get to, with affordable nonstop flights from around 40 cities in the United States.
Cancun has great beaches and a wide variety of resorts and hotels for every type of traveler.
Peak season in Cancun lasts from December through April, and here's what travelers need to know about visiting at this popular time of year.
2. Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
Punta Cana is the most popular destination in the Caribbean for travelers right now, welcoming more than 10 million visitors in 2023.
This beach hotspot is known for its many all-inclusive resorts and stunning beaches.
If you're looking for an affordable getaway in the Caribbean, Punta Cana is a good choice because it's one of the cheapest island destinations in the Caribbean.
3. London, United Kingdom
Finally, one European destination makes the cut for the most popular travel hotspots in 2024, and that is London.
This UK capital city is a favorite for American travelers looking to travel across the pond because it's easy to get to and there are very few cultural barriers to navigate.
London offers an amazing variety of historical sites, museums, shopping, restaurants, and bars that will appeal to every traveler. It's also a great hub for taking day trips around the UK. Some of the best places to visit under 1.5 hours from London include Oxford, Canterbury, Bath, and Bristol.
