These are the best getaways on Airbnb and Vrbo
Last summer, at the height of the pandemic, many Connecticut residents opted for stays rather than going abroad or across the country. This year, as cities reopened and restrictions eased, data shows many residents have always chosen to keep their efforts local.
While Connecticut has plenty of scenery to offer, most visitors have been drawn to the state’s coastal areas this summer. Almost 40% of demand for Vrbo, a short-term rental site in the state has been reserved for homes in the New London area, according to Nancy Lien, public relations manager for Vrbo.
