If you’re thinking about traveling to Las Vegas this fall, you’re not alone. A recent study from Tripadvisor found that Las Vegas will be the number one most popular city to visit this fall.

At least more than half — at least 54 percent — of Americans report plan on traveling this season between Sept. 1 and Nov. 30, according to a press release from the company.

“This is down 13 percent from the chronically-busiest summer travel season, but notably up 4 percent from this past spring, and 10 percent higher than the number of people globally traveling this fall,” Tripadvisor said in the release.

While previous trends following the onset of the pandemic have shown travelers preferring outdoor and nature destinations to avoid crowded tourist spots, travels now are gravitating back toward cities.

Although most of us aren’t quite ready to vacation across the world, those who are traveling this fall are more willing to splurge,” said Val Anthony, lead research analyst at Tripadvisor. “The average price for trips booked by Americans this fall is $776, compared to $588 globally, meaning Americans are spending significantly more on travel than the rest of the world. This could be a result of more family trips: ‘Family hotels’ are the most popular hotel style, while pools and ‘family rooms’ are among the most popular hotel amenities being searched on Tripadvisor in the U.S. right now.”

Tripadvisor says cities make up half of the top 10 most popular destinations this fall.

Based on Tripadvisor site traffic, Las Vegas will be the number one most popular destination this fall from now through November.

The 10 most popular fall getaways, according to the company are listed below:

  1. Las Vegas, Nev.
  2. New York City, N.Y.
  3. Orlando, Fla.
  4. Myrtle Beach, S.C.
  5. Ocean City, Md.
  6. Honolulu, Hawaii
  7. Nashville, Tenn.
  8. Chicago, Ill.
  9. Miami Beach, Fla.
  10. Virginia Beach, Va.
