Hopper is a popular global travel agency that has travel services on an app you can download, and they just released their insights for 2023 travel. This new report showcases what will be trending and where travelers will go in the spring, summer, fall, and winter.
The report is a great way to track what destinations are popular and why you should book them. It can also be used to avoid specific areas for overcrowding and overtourism. Hopper also just announced the top five destinations people visit in the U.S.
These destinations range from New York to Las Vegas, and while they may not be shocking, it holds some surprises. This list will give you an idea of what to do in these U.S.-based destinations and why traveling there this year is a good idea. It’ll also give you a peek into what makes these cities and destinations interesting.
Here are the top five destinations in the U.S. to travel to in 2023, according to a new report from Hopper:
Las Vegas has been home to different types of travelers. Everyone from gamblers to people wanting to walk the strip and explore imitation landmarks of other destinations. The city has something for everyone, and in recent years, its shows have been gaining tons of popularity, even to the point of rivaling Broadway in New York City.
Other than shows, museums have appeared more frequently in the city. New spots like Discovering King Tut’s Tomb at the Luxor Hotel & Casino and Princess Diana: A Tribute Exhibition at The Shops at Crystals have recently opened, giving travelers a reason to visit.
Los Angeles has always been a touristy city, and that’s not changing. With new attractions at Disneyland like Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway and a metro public transportation expansion set to be completed by the winter of 2023, the city and its visitors keep growing.
Another fun addition is the Automated People Mover, which is set to start sometime in 2023. It’s going to be free, and it will connect with other transportation. This will make traveling to the airport and back easier for many people.
The city that never sleeps always has something new happening, and it’s no different this year. Things like the new immersive Harry Potter exhibit are opening this year, creating enough buzz for the destination to appear in Hopper’s report. The Museum of Natural History’s new science and nature center opened this year, and it is a big attraction for many travelers.
Central Florida is a theme park heaven, but there’s more to the destinations than theme parks. Orlando is growing to become a destination for its food and lifestyle attractions. The town was granted four Michelin-star restaurants which is astonishing considering it had none before.
Places like Soseki Modern Omakase and Kadence earned one star, and they’re not in theme parks. This shows the town is growing. It also has a great nightlife scene that is getting more diverse. Take the non-alcoholic speakeasy Bandbox Orlando. It’s one of the first non-alcoholic bars in Florida. They have great mocktails that are not mixed with alcohol. It’s a great way to get to know Orlando’s inner-city culture.
Magic City is a great place to go for the summer and winter. Miami and Miami Beach have summer weather all year round, and their attractions never stop running. Some of the best things in the cities are its hotels. The Arlo Wynwood, Nautilus by Arlo, The Elser Hotel, and The Gabriel South Beach are great for different reasons, but they all have an awesome Miami vibe.
The Goodtime Hotel, created by Pharrell Williams and David Grutman, embodies old Miami Beach. Once you step inside, you feel like your traveler back in time. Unique lounges like Strawberry Moon have cocktails inspired by the era’s past.
Pro tip: If there, get the purple reign cocktail. Made with avion silver tequila, domaine de canton, shōchū, butterfly pea lavender, and yuzu.
All these destinations are unique, and you should check them out this year. Hopper knows they will be a hotspot, and you should lock down your plans before it’s too late.
