Apparently, we’re all craving some beach time — and some college football?
That’s the end of Airbnb, anyway. When they analyzed their rental statistics on who’s going where after Labor Day, the top draws for fall getaways, they said, were football towns in the South and beach getaways on the West Coast and Jersey Shore.
Well, sort of. Ocean City, New Jersey, is definitely a beach town. But Southern California’s Santa Ana (No. 4 in the top 10) and La Mesa (No. 5)? Let’s just say you’re not going to walk out your Airbnb door and climb into the sand there, no matter what your Superhost claims. You can also call San Jose a beach destination.
College football cities range from Oxford, Mississippi, home of Ole Miss, to Baton Rouge, home to two Louisiana powerhouses, and Ann Arbor for you Michigan Wolverines fans.
Here are Airbnb’s top trending destinations for fall getaways:
1 Ocean City, New Jersey
2 Bella Vista, Arkansas
3 Oxford, Mississippi
4 Santa Ana, California
5 La Mesa, California.
6 Baton Rouge, Louisiana
7 Ann Arbor, Michigan
8 Lubbock, Texas
