If Airbnb’s record night of 4 million guests is any indication, the travel industry is bouncing back. Now the vacation rental company has dropped the top travel trends of Labor Day weekend and the fall. From long weekend stays to fall getaways, read on for all the details!

When the company compared seasonal data from 2019 with this year, weekend trips with families were up 70%. For the upcoming holiday weekend, which officially signals the end of summer in the U.S., many of the trips booked are seven nights or longer. Some of the top destinations for Labor Day:

  • Anchorage, AK
  • Kansas City, MO
  • Philadelphia, PA
  • Mexico City, Mexico
  • Kenai Peninsula, AK
  • East Bay, CA
  • Seattle, WA
  • San Juan, Puerto Rico
  • Santa Fe, NM
  • Greensboro, NC

Of course, Labor Day doesn’t mean that travel is over for the year. Travelers continue to be quite interested in fall trips, with a particular interest in mid-sized cities and larger cities that show off the season’s beauty. The list of top spots for the fall getaways:

  • New York, NY
  • Chicago, IL
  • Boston, MA
  • Washington, DC
  • Cincinnati, OH
  • Charlotte, NC
  • Minneapolis, MN
  • Southern Maine
