Best in the USA – new study reveals the most popular

LOS ANGELES, June 2, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — New research by online savings platform BravoDeal has revealed the most popular states, cities and attractions for domestic travel in the US. A new study reveals the most popular domestic travel destinations in each state, as well as America’s top vacation preferences.

Sun states California and Hawaii voted top domestic travel destinations

According to the data, Hawaii and California dominate the US domestic travel market, with 46% of US states prefer California for their domestic travel, while 42% prefer Hawaii. Together, the two sunny states hold the majority, with 44 states preferring these two destinations for their travel to the US. According to state-level data, California is the preferred destination for most other states, especially those traveling from the East Coast. Hawaii, however, receives the largest share of online interest from travelers across the country, with over 300,000 online searches each month, nearly double that of California (averaging 151,500 monthly searches).

Only six of the 50 states are reinsuring themselves and choosing destinations closer to home. Louisiana residents searched more for trips to Mississippi (averaging 2010 searches per month, twice as many searches for California), while travelers from the New England states of Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts prefer to travel to the neighboring state.
