They kindle our imagination. They invoke awe, and envy. And if there is anything we have learned from the Season 7 premiere […]

Hit the road with these trending summer destinations

Jul 14 2017 [Archived Version] □ Published at Maps under tags  maps

We’re officially into summer vacation here in the U.S., which means it’s time to hit the road. We’ve collected the top destinations people are searching on Google Maps this summer, so you can find travel inspiration whether you want a hike, a city view or a ballgame. Take a peek at the top trending spots, and find the full lists of the top 15 destinations in three categories at the end of this post.

America the Beautiful

Fourth of July may be over, but you can take a trip through our country’s history with these top searched landmarks. Start with the Liberty Bell (#10 on our list) or the Statue of Liberty (#4), both symbols of American independence, then swing into the nation’s capital to see the White House and the Lincoln Memorial. Your next stop (covered wagon optional) might be the Gateway Arch, a monument to the country’s western expansion in the 19th century and a jumping off point into the Great Plains—Mount Rushmore, in South Dakota, is a must-see at #1. Finally, you might visit the Hoover Dam, an icon of engineering constructed during the Great Depression, before making it to California to see the Hollywood Sign and the Golden Gate Bridge.


Find search your park

Go west. Though the list of top searched parks spans the country, only three are east of the Mississippi, with Yellowstone—America’s first national park—taking its fitting place at the top of the list. Geography aside, there seems to be a park for everyone’s taste. Many are searching for (literal) evergreen spots like Crater Lake National Park, Sequoia National Park and Muir Woods National Monument, where they can hit the trails under the cover of pines. Others are willing to brave the heat for a glimpse at stunning rock formations in Grand Canyon National Park or Arches National Park. There’s even an urban park—New York’s Central Park, obvi. And at #15 Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts in Fairfax, VA, you can even take in an opera or a performance by Blondie.


Play ball!

Baseball season is in full, um, swing—which has people searching for a spot to catch the action, and maybe a fly ball. Ten of our top 15 most searched stadiums are Major League Baseball stadiums, with NYC spots Yankee Stadium and the Mets’ Citi Field leading the pack ahead of West Coast rival parks Dodger Stadium and the Giants’ AT&T Park. But the #1 searched stadium in the country isn’t a baseball field at all: It’s MetLife Stadium, which is home to summer concerts and events—like the International Champions Cup match between Juventus F.C and FC Barcelona—until the New York Jets and the New York Football Giants return for the start of NFL season.
