Now more than ever, consumers crave quick, bite-sized experiences to keep up with their fast-paced lifestyles, and travel is no exception. In a new survey, Hotwire found that nearly all Americans (90%) prefer short trips to longer vacations. Millennials in particular are fueling the dramatic rise of this quick getaway trend with spontaneous, 2-3 night “quickies.”

As experts in last-minute travel, Hotwire wants to make it easy for anyone to take an unexpected trip, which is why we ranked the country’s best cities to make it a quickie ... getaway, that is!

To create the “America’s Best Cities for a Quickie Index,” Hotwire analyzed more than 10,000 internal and external data points across 250 cities based on value, convenience, and leisure scores.


For this infographic, Hotwire went straight to the source to find out why travelers today are changing the way they book and enjoy trips, increasingly opting for quick weekend getaways for a dopamine boost.



Hotwire has collaborated with the top destinations of our “America’s Best” Index to create custom “quickie” itineraries to help guide travelers to the must-sees and must do’s in each city, including locally recommended restaurants, bars, attractions, transportation and a few hidden gems to make the most of your one, two, or three-day getaway.
