Expedia recently revealed what many travelers already know: People around the world love Las Vegas.
Expedia also declared that, over the company’s 20 years, American travelers pick Mexico as the top international destination, particularly the resort town of Cancun.
The gambling capital of the U.S. wins the distinction of being Expedia’s most searched destination worldwide since it began 20 years ago.
Expedia, which marks two decades this year, says in a statement that Las Vegas’ appeal crosses all categories — whether folks are looking for airfares, hotels and car rentals or travel packages.
–More than 42 million people visited last year (by comparison, all of L.A. welcomed more than 45.5 million visitors in 2015);
–More than 21,000 conventions were held there last year; and
–The gaming revenue from the Strip alone was a jaw-dropping $6.3 billion.
In the last decade, these 10 places top the list of Expedia’s most-sold rooms in hotels:
- Las Vegas
- Orlando, Fla.
- New York City
- Los Angeles
- San Diego
- San Francisco
- Cancun, Mexico
- Orange County, Calif.
By the way, in honor of its 20th birthday, Expedia is rolling out coupons – specials like 20% or $20 off the price of hotels – that you’ll find on its website through Aug. 20. Here’s the Web page to check.
