MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – TripAdvisor released Thursday its top 50 domestic destinations for U.S. travelers this summer based on the greatest increase in seasonal hotel booking interest and the average one-week vacation costs for hotels and airfare. Myrtle Beach ranked 22nd on that list.

According to a news release, 88 percent of more than 1,300 travelers surveyed plan to vacation this summer, up seven percent from last year. 91 percent will travel within in the U.S. and 71 percent will stay in a hotel. 49 percent will go to the beach and 44 percent will choose a city destination.

"TripAdvisor hotel pricing and airfare data show that U.S. travelers planning vacations to these popular destinations can save 40 percent on average when visiting during the least expensive summer week," said Brooke Ferencsik, senior director of communications for TripAdvisor. "Everyone wants to make the most of their travel budget and the Summer Vacation Value Report highlights when and where to save with great value hotels.
