The summer travel season is nearly here, and smart travelers are planning in advance. So where is everyone going? Airbnb has some insight into where people are heading and what kinds of experiences they’re looking for. Their 2024 Summer Travel Trends report reveals the places and properties that are trending across the platform for summer travel.

Sporting events this summer are going to be huge: the Olympics in Paris and European Football Championships in Germany are a big draw in Europe, but Airbnb data shows that travelers are increasingly looking for properties near America’s Soccer Tournament as well, in cities like Glendale, Arizona and Las Vegas, Nevada.

Airbnb also reveals that users are searching the platform’s Play category in numbers more than double those of last year. Travelers are seeking stays this summer that are experiences in their own right, wish-listing places like an entire house with a massive games room in Illinois, a cabin with a whole playground in Oklahoma and a luxury compound in California with everything from pickleball and basketball to a pool and putting green. Families are also searching for fun, showing an increase in searches for amenities like barbecues, pools and private outdoor areas.

The top trending destinations this summer, according to Airbnb, are Quincy, Washington; Columbia, South Carolina; Las Vegas, Nevada; Glendale, Arizona; Ouray, Colorado; Eugene, Oregon; Broken Bow, Oklahoma; Saint Paul, Minnesota; Rosemary Beach, Florida and Santa Rosa Beach, Florida.
