Orlando is the most popular domestic destination in the US this summer: TripAdvisor

Orlando, Florida

Orlando, Las Vegas and Myrtle Beach round out the top three spots on TripAdvisor's list of most popular staycation destinations this summer, based on hotel booking interest among US travelers. 

A scan of the top 10 list reveals that Americans are largely headed south and to beachside towns this summer, with the exception of New York City. 

In a recent survey conducted among 3,500 US TripAdvisor users, the overwhelming majority (97 percent) said they plan to stay in a hotel for their summer vacation -- an interesting finding given the popularity of homeshare accommodations. 

More than half of respondents (55 percent) said their summer vacation will be within US borders. Around 60 percent of US travelers said their travel includes a long road trip.

The most popular international destination this summer is Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.

1. Orlando, FL 
2. Las Vegas, NV
