Where do Americans go on Holiday in the US?

The United States is the third most visited country after France and Spain, with 80 million international visitors each year. It’s clearly a popular place to visit, so when it comes to going on vacation, Americans have many hot spots right on their doorstep (well, usually a plane ride away!)

Americans take an enormous 2.29 billion domestic trips each year and in 2021, 74% of Americans that went on vacation stayed within the US. With such variety and beauty, why not stay close to home? After all, as Woody Guthrie said, “from California to the New York island, from the redwood forest to the Gulf Stream waters, this land was made for you and me.”

Like many other countries, Americans tend to go on holiday when schools break up for summer. Generally, that’s between mid-to-late June up until the end of August or early September. Vacationing is particularly popular around the fourth of July weekend when more than 47.7 million Americans travel to celebrate their Independence Day. Although the summer is the most popular time to go away, winter breaks are up and coming. During the Christmas holidays, which coincide with Hanukkah and Kwanzaa, some 120 million people travelled in 2021 to celebrate the season.
