Milwaukee Is First On Airbnb's List Of Top 20 Travel Destinations For 2020

Many travelers are always looking for the best recommendations when it comes to picking a location, and Airbnb is here to help.

The website released its list of the top 20 trendy traveling destinations for 2020. The rankings were "based on year-over-year growth in bookings." Milwaukee, Wisconsin topped their list.

The city, home to slightly under 600,000, saw a 729 percent year-over-year increase, per Airbnb. Milwaukee - home of the NBA's Bucks and MLB's Brewers - is renowned for its museums.

This includes the Harley-Davidson Museum as well as the Milwaukee Art Museum. And as Airbnbn pointed out, the city - with a beautiful lakefront - offers "105 miles of scenic bike lanes."

The Giannis Antetokounmpo-led Bucks were also just two games away from reaching the NBA Finals last year, while the Brewers were one game shy of winning the 2018 National League pennant. Sports fans traveling to Milwaukee should make it a priority to see Bucks and/or Brewers home game.

Pabst Mansion, the Lakefront Brewery and the Milwaukee Public Market are other can't-miss tourist attractions in the city.

Second on Airbnb's list was Bilbao, Spain, which saw a 402 percent year-by-year increase. Like Milwaukee, Bilbao is known for its many beloved museums. This includes the Guggenheim and the Museum of Fine Arts Bilbao.

The remainder of the top 10, in order, was: Xi'An, China, Eugene, Oregon, the nation of Luxembourg, Guadalajara, Mexico and Vanuatu. The small city of Courtenay, British Columbia ranked 14th on the list - while Tokyo placed 17th. The capital of Japan has seen a 103 percent year-by-year increase.
