American travelers are officially fans of the “quickie.” According to “America’s Best Cities for a Quickie” survey, more travelers than ever are leaning into quick vacations, eschewing the risks and unknown of international travel.
Hotwire, which defines a “quickie” as a two- or three-night getaway, usually at the last minute, found that quick domestic trips with a touch of luxury are in high demand the year.
Almost 80 percent of those surveyed said they’d use the money they saved on booking a trip to better their experience. That includes enjoying an expensive meal, spa treatments, or upgrading to a luxury room.
There are 40 of them, and they’re broken down into four categories based on size: major metropolises, mid-sized must-sees, small-town favorites, and itty bitty cities.
It’s no surprise to see popular destinations like New York, Atlanta, Orlando, and Savannah top the list in each category. Other notables include Philadelphia, Cincinnati, Richmond, and Charleston.
