As COVID-19 restrictions start to lift — and as President Joe Biden has called for a return to normal by July 4 — Airbnb has seen a growth in customers visiting its website and planning trips for the spring and summer.

Based on that data, Airbnb recently identified10 locations in the U.S. that will likely see a travel boom in the coming months — and a small town in Utah made the list.

Located in Kane County, Utah, Orderville made No. 6 on Airbnb’s list of most popular destinations in the United States. About three hours from Las Vegas, the town is popular on Airbnb primarily because of its proximity to multiple national and state parks in Utah, such as Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park, and Zion and Bryce Canyon national parks, Conde Nast Traveler reported.

Orderville also has a wide range of Airbnb options — including “The Farm House Container,” a “Tiny Escape Home” and a large cabin that can house up to 16 guests.

According to Airbnb’s list, other top travel destinations in the U.S. include:

  • Southern Maine
  • Cape May, New Jersey
  • Round Top, Texas
  • Lake Powell, Arizona
  • Cape San Blas, Florida
  • Mammoth Cave, Kentucky
  • Kitty Hawk, North Carolina
  • Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri
  • Whitefish, Montana

Earlier this year, Airbnb also released its 50 most unique wish listed locations across the United States. For Utah, a treehouse in Park City was the No. 1 spot, the Deseret News reported.
