With many of us putting our early-summer travel plans on hold thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, Americans are starting to think about where they want to travel once restrictions are lifted, and not surprisingly many of them are focused on destinations within the United States.

According to Travel+Leisure, data from Expedia shows that Americans are eyeing domestic travel over international travel for the remainder of this year. According to the travel site, eight out of the top 10 most searched for destinations for flights for July through December were located in the U.S.

Travel+Leisure reports most people on the site are looking for flights to Orlando and even though Walt Disney World has yet to announce an official reopening date, it appears travelers are eager to return to the sunshine state.

According to Travel+Leisure, Honolulu is the second most popular search on Expedia, closely followed by Las Vegas.

“As states start to ease their stay-at-home restrictions and people become more comfortable with the idea of travel, it’s likely Americans will choose to explore their own backyard first,” a spokeswoman for Expedia told Travel+Leisure adding the interest in destinations like Orlando and Las Vegas “could be an indication of Americans seeking a vacation that offers warm weather and tons of activities, both indoor and outdoor, and shows that for now at least curious travelers haven’t ruled out visiting a big city.”

The top 10 most searched destinations for flights, according to Expedia:

3. Las Vegas
4. Miami
5. Cancun
6. Maui
7. London
8. Los Angeles
