DENVER (KDVR) — The first half of 2023 took the popular vacation rental site by storm with a 10% increase in bookings from last year. Airbnb’s new set of data names the most popular summer destinations by state. But in Colorado, it’s not Vail or Telluride.
Airbnb named Granby as the top travel destination in Colorado, which isn’t exactly a surprise because it’s surrounded by the Rockies and overlooks the Continental Divide.
While Granby is known for being a winter destination because it’s near ski resorts, ice skating and hot springs, plenty of people vacation in the summer for the quaint location and nearby lakes and hikes.
Out of all the listings in Granby, Airbnb said these three locations made the top of users’ wish lists. Most of the rentals fit entire families, from eight to 16 or more people.
