We are already less than three months away from 2020, which means it’s time to get started on planning our 2020 vacations.
Airbnb has given us major travel inspo with its list of 20 best destinations to explore next year. Using information gathered from its website, the popular booking app was able to predict the places that will be on everyone’s bucket list in 2020.
According to Airbnb, its list is “based on internal Airbnb data for bookings made for 2020 as of September 2019 vs. bookings made for 2019 as of September 2019.”
Shockingly, the first-place destination goes to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, with a 729% increase in yearly bookings. This may be because it will be the host of next year’s Democratic National Convention. Milwaukee is also home to a bustling bar and restaurant scene as well as cultural attractions and scenic bike lanes.
A spokesperson for Airbnb discussed the list saying, “ranging from post-industrial culture hubs like Milwaukee and Guadalajara are emerging destinations that are benefitting from an increase in sustainable tourist, this year’s list is full of surprises and hidden gems.”
Second place went to Bilbao, Spain, which was also voted the 2018 European City of the Year. This city has gorgeous architecture and mouthwatering cuisine.
Buriram, a province in northeast Thailand, came in third place. Here you will find ancient ruins and Khmer relics.
