After 6 months of lockdown, quarantine, and Zooming in our homes, travelers are looking to hit the road again, and 1 million travelers are flocking to Florida for Labor Day.

This is according to TripIt, which analyzed the top 100 destinations for US-origin roundtrip flight reservations made from January 1 to July 30, 2020, with a travel date between September 4 to 8, 2020. TripIt compared this data to the equivalent booking and travel window in 2019.

While Las Vegas crowns the list at No. 1, and Denver is runner up at No. 2, Florida made the top 100 list with 7 cities, more than any other state, for Labor Day flight reservations. In fact, 12 percent of all plans include a destination in the Sunshine State. In 2019, Florida’s share of LDW flight reservations was 4 percent, representing a 200 percent year-over-year increase. That’s 1 million travelers flocking to Florida.
