9 of the Top Trending Destinations This Spring, and Where to Stay When You Go

by Olivia Harden Mar 1, 2022

In 2022, after being cooped up in the house, international travel has resumed wholeheartedly, with people jumping in with both feet. In a news release from Airbnb, following the trends of the past year, is becoming irresistable, as the company saw an increase from 20 percent to 35 percent of “cross-border travel” bookings at the tail-end of 2021.

There are travelers whose desire for wanderlust is becoming even stronger as the weather gets warmer. There are also adults in their 30s who are taking advantage of a new world that’s working remotely, as well as people over 60 who are following the Live Anywhere trend — meaning they’re moving into an Airbnb for 28 days or longer. Whether short or long-term, Airbnb has the perfect rentals for any type of experience you’re looking for.

We hope you love the spaces and stays we recommend! Just so you know, Matador may collect a small commission from the links on this page if you decide to book a stay. Listed prices are accurate as of the time of publication.

As spring break inches closer, it’s time to start thinking about where to book your stay. US residents are flocking to these destinations for an international adventure, and we have complete rundowns of the best places to stay in each location:


If you’re recently retired or now have the opportunity to work remotely, take advantage and get ready to enjoy traveling to places with warm weather and pretty views with no reason to return. The top destinations for adults following the Live Anywhere trend — enjoying long-term stays with warm weather and sunshine, are across Florida, including the Gulf Coasts, the Atlantic Coast, and Orlando. You’ll also find plenty of people enjoying all that Phoenix has to offer. Even more so, you’ll find nomads in the most unique Airbnbs like RVs, treehouses, and tiny homes.

With protections like vaccines for the entire family, it’s no wonder that family travel is also back this spring. Families are flocking to destinations like Orlando to enjoy theme parks — and visiting other parts of Florida, along with Oahu and Maui for the sunny, warm beaches. But you’ll also find families following digital nomads on their way to Phoneix, and making their way to the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee.

Where will you be traveling to enjoy this warm weather?
