How does your summer vacation destination compare with this year's Top Ten list?

In a press release this morning, Orbitz Worldwide announced the top destinations for travel this summer. Based on bookings for hotels and airfares between 6/1 and 8/31, Orbitz has come up with a top ten list. Some are quite surprising to me.

Monday, I wrote about ways to enjoy Las Vegas without gambling, and golly, everyone must have anticipated my article, because that's the number one destination in their survey. With a surprisingly low average daily hotel rate of just $75.00, it does appear to be affordable.

I'll be Las Vegas in a week, and personally, I "Pricelined" a nice 2-1/2 star hotel for $42.00 per night. At $373.00 round trip for airfare from Cleveland, I chose to use frequent flier miles instead, finding a round-trip flight that only required 37,500 points.

"Summer travelers are taking advantage of the off-season deals in destinations like Cancun, Riviera Maya and Punta Cana, all of which make our Top 10 list this year," said Jeanenne Tornatore, Orbitz Travel Insider. "While average summer airfares appear to be trending higher year over year, travelers will find significant hotel savings, with the majority of the season's top destinations averaging less than $150 a night."
