The 25 top-trending tourist attractions this summer, according to TripAdvisor

Summer may be coming to an end, but there's still plenty of time left to take a vacation.

 

If you're looking to take advantage of the still-warm weather (or if you want to capitalize on the deals associated with shoulder season), you'll probably want to go somewhere special.

 

That's where TripAdvisor comes in — the hotel booking and review site just announced the results of its Attractions Trend Index, which shows which US activities have received the greatest traveler interest this summer. The analysts came to their results by looking at the increase in search activity on TripAdvisor year over year.
