Given that fuel costs are much lower than one year ago, more Americans are making plans to travel during the holiday season. Despite the fact that hotel rates have somewhat increased, a majority of hotels are nearly booked for the upcoming holiday season. So, the question is: where exactly are the vast majority of those individuals considering to vacation?

Florida

Orlando is one of the most popular vacation destinations in the United States and for very good reasons. However, Ft. Lauderdale has gained recognition for being a vacationers paradise and becoming a popular destination among holiday travelers. Florida offers visitors with a variety of outdoor activities both for individuals and families considering to vacation in the state. 

Disney World which attracts well over 17 million visitors each year is ranked among the top favorite attractions.

Several other of Florida's most popular attractions include Gatorland, an 110-acre theme park and wildlife preserve, the Kennedy Space Center, and also the Florida Everglades.

California

Providing very mild temperatures during the months of November through December is what makes California a popular holiday destination for travelers coming from colder regions. Two of the most popular amusement parks in the Los Angeles metro area are Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm. San Diego, on the other hand, invites vacationers to its laid back atmosphere featuring beautiful beaches and a variety of shops. 

San Francisco offers visitors with a vibrant culture and international flavor not seen in any other U.S. city. The area features a number of attractions and activities which include riding on the city's renowned cable cars, exploring Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown, Union Square, the Golden Gate Bridge, or perhaps visiting the vineyards in Napa Valley.
