Planning a getaway can be hard for
millennials
on a budget — especially when they’re looking for
a good experience to flaunt on their Instagram.

That’s why HomeToGo took
a look
at the hottest destinations in America for
millennials
to visit. It surveyed 1,000 HomeToGo users born
between 1981 and 1996 to find out their top priorities when
planning a vacation. Turns out, millennials are looking for
affordable flights, unforgettable experiences, Instagrammability,
affordable food and drink, vibrant nightlife, and affordable
accommodation.

HomeToGo then examined how strongly these factors played into
the 500 most-searched US locations on its website. Using data from
the US Department of Transportation, an online travel agent, Yelp,
Google Maps, Instagram and tourist boards, and HomeToGo, the
company ranked each city in each category on a scale of five to 10.
The cities with the highest overall rankings were narrowed down to
the top 50.
