DENVER (KDVR) — If you’re looking to book a vacation to somewhere nice and relaxing, travel experts say now is the time to do so.
You don’t want to wait, because new data shows more people are starting to fly again; especially when it comes to visiting popular leisure destinations.
When it comes to where Coloradans are traveling to the most right now, research from ScottsCheapFlights.com shows Las Vegas, New York City, Los Angeles, Miami and Orlando are the top five spots.
