What does Atlantic City have in common with Key West? A popular travel website says they are both great destinations for fall travel.

In its ranking of the top ten places to visit this fall, Tripadvisor says only Key Largo and Key West are more popular than Atlantic City.

The site says people still want to visit cities near the beach, however, people are generally booking short vacations that are only a few nights long, and people don't want to travel too far from home. Those trends make Atlantic City an ideal spot for people that want to briefly escape places like New York City, Philadelphia, and even Washington, DC.

SIlive.com quotes Christopher Hsi, Consumer Market Research Lead Analyst for Tripadvisor, as saying, "The pandemic has forced travelers to be creative and explore new destinations in ways they may not have considered previously. This fall, we’re seeing a rise in destinations where travelers can relax and rejuvenate, as opposed to the busy hustle and bustle of popular cities."

Joining Atlantic City in Tripadvisor's rankings were Clearwater, FL, Myrtle Beach, SC, San Diego, CA, and Savannah, GA, according to travelandleisure.com.
