Putting a new spin on the old first day of school assignment, TripCase, the mobile travel management application, analyzed where Americans flew for their vacations this summer. The review found that we escaped to the Northern half of the country to cool off and played near beaches on both coasts, but mostly stayed within the U.S.

According to the data, the Top 20 destinations for U.S. vacation air travel this summer were to:

1) New York City

2) Orlando

3) Las Vegas

4) Chicago

5) Washington, D.C.

6) Seattle

7) Los Angeles

8) Denver

9) Cancun, Mexico

10) Atlanta

11) San Francisco

12) Boston

13) Dallas / Ft. Worth

14) London, U.K.

15) San Diego

16) Honolulu

17) Minneapolis

18) Miami

19) Ft. Lauderdale

20) Phoenix

Data analyzed by TripCase was from trips added by travelers into TripCase and from travel booked through the Sabre Travel Network and looked at air travel trips booked with at least one Saturday stay with a U.S. origination and beginning and ending between June 1, 2010 and August 15, 2010.
