Ever wanted to know where your fellow American travelers are headed to this summer? At Hopper, we were wondering just that. So we pulled some data to uncover which destinations, both domestic and international, were getting the most love.
Our data scientists found which destinations got more searches for 30, 60, and 90 days from today than they had in weeks past (reflecting an increase in demand for those routes). They also found which destinations were receiving the most flight searches overall, reflecting which places Americans want to be the most this summer. (That way, we can either be where the party is ... or avoid these crowded hot spots, depending on how we feel.)
First, we found the domestic destinations where demand has spiked the most in the past two weeks, relative to total demand. Then we paired up with 10Best to offer detailed travel guides so you know what to do, and what to avoid, once there.

There are a few surprises on this list, namely that Anchorage and Buffalo searches increased at such high rates. Maui's Kahului Airport appears in the top five twice, and both of Houston's airports take top spots for destinations 90 days from now, with the sharpest increase in demand.
Then we wanted to see which destinations worldwide were the most popular for 30, 60, and 90 days from now and, out of curiosity, what an average "good" price to each destination would be. (We consider a good price to be in the 10th percentile.)

Americans are pretty consistently looking for the same spots throughout the summer: London, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Cancun and Paris. No surprise there; these destinations routinely rank among the most popular destinations year-round from major U.S. departure airports.
