Interest in travel is rising fast as the pandemic winds down, with Americans dying to hit the road again, two recent surveys have found.

Separate surveys from websites Booking.com and Skyscanner, which partnered with customer engagement platform Braze and app intelligence provider Apptopia, found that Las Vegas, Miami and Orlando, Florida, are among the top destinations searched online by potential US vacationers.

All but L.A. and the Big Apple made Booking.com’s own list of top 10 destination searches for summer travel, which also featured seaside spots such as Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and Ocean City, Maryland. The site’s survey found 61% of people plan to hit the beach at some point this summer.
