It’s almost been a year since terms like “social distancing” and “quarantine pods” entered our lexicon. And although it’s impossible to tally exactly how many family reunions, destination weddings, and work trips were canceled due to COVID-19, it’s safe to say 2020 was the worst year for global tourism in modern history (confirmed by the United Nations World Tourism Organization). After stay-at-home orders, travel restrictions, and months of working from home, it’s no surprise there’s some serious pent-up travel demand.
And if you find yourself lusting over the idea of your next getaway, you’re certainly not alone. In fact, a recent study conducted by ClearPath Strategies for Airbnb indicated 36 percent of Americans are daydreaming about travel at least once a day. So, when people are ready to take their first trip of 2021, you can bet they’re going to make it special. Luckily, the country is jam-packed with truly spectacular Airbnbs.
