Queer travel mecca Key West, Florida was recently named the number two top Fall 2020 travel destination by Tripadvisor. The annual Seasonal Travel Index for Fall (defined as September 1 through November 30) found that nearly two-thirds (65 percent) of American tourists are planning domestic fall getaways, and this year they are more interested in beach destinations like Key West than urban city centers.
“Among all of the disruption and restrictions this year, 76 percent of U.S. travelers continue to say that travel is important to them, even if they can’t experience the world like they used to,” notes Christopher Hsi, consumer market research lead analyst for Tripadvisor in a written statement. “The pandemic has forced travelers to be creative and explore new destinations in ways they may not have considered previously. This fall, we’re seeing a rise in destinations where travelers can relax and rejuvenate, as opposed to the busy hustle and bustle of popular cities.”
