By analyzing plans and preferences for this year’s 4th of July, the company revealed the country’s most coveted destinations.

If you, too, are planning a trip this month but don’t know where to go yet, these 5 cities are definitely worth a spot on your bucket list.

5. Miami, Florida

This ranking wouldn’t be complete without Miami, a place that, thanks to its stunning beaches and infectious energy, has turned into America’s ultimate warm-weathered playground.

Whether you’re dying to take in the sights of the iconic South Beach or want to relax someplace quieter like Crandon Park Beach or Bill Baggs Cape, the Florida gem promises to deliver exactly what you’re looking for.

And for those days spent away from the beach, there are plenty of events and attractions you can use to fill the time.

The Miami Salsa Congress, a night at E11EVEN, a stroll through Little Havana, or even a visit to the famous Art Deco Historic District and the Vizcaya Museum will definitely keep you entertained as you make your way through what’s shaping up to be the most fun summer yet.

4. Honolulu, Hawaii

If you want to go all out on that tropical getaway this summer but don’t want to go through the effort of planning an out-of-country trip, Honolulu is just the place for you.

Not only will you get to lounge on some of the world’s most legendary beaches (think Waikiki and Lanikai), but you’ll also get to attend some of the most exciting events of the year, including the Prince Lot Hula Festival and the Hawaii State Farm Fair. 

Those of you looking to take in those famous Hawaiian sights in all their glory, though, absolutely need to hike up Diamond Head – the views from here are to die for.

3. Anchorage, Alaska

Not everyone chases the sun in the summer, especially when temperatures get as high as they are right now.

Make no mistake, this’ll be a nature lover’s retreat.

After, all, you’re coming to the land of the Chugach Mountains, Alyeska Resort, and Kincaid Park- some hikes and sightseeing expeditions are in order.

2. Orlando, Florida

As North America’s theme park capital, Orlando’s allure as a top travel destination this summer is self-explanatory.

Still, it’s worth remembering that there’s a lot to do and see in the city, even beyond Disney and Universal.

This month, for example, you’ll get to attend the iconic Red, White & Boom celebration at Legoland and even take part in a Christmas in July cookie swap – talk about a well-rounded vacation!

1. Seattle, Washington

With this latest American Airlines report coming to light, Seattle just cemented its status as the top seasonal destination in all of North America despite not being your usual place for summer retreat and, truth be told, crazy expensive.

Now also happens to be the best time to explore the Washington gem’s wilder side.

And make sure to move quickly; between Lake Union, Discovery Park, Olympic National Park, and Mount Rainier, there’s a lot of ground to cover (literally!).

Don’t worry if you were hoping for a more typical city break; there’s lots for you to do here, too.

The Seafair Festival, the Capitol Hill Block Party, and Bite of Seattle will provide all the opportunities you need to experience the city’s spirit and blend right in with the locals.
