They take the top three honors among the hottest tourist attractions in America this fall, according to the TripAdvisor’s Attractions Trend Index.

The index created by the travel planning and booking site ranks U.S. attractions that have seen the greatest increase in traveler interest over the past year.

TripAdvisor spokesperson Brooke Ferencsik describes the index as revealing “introspective and inspirational sites that are gaining attention from travelers this fall.” He continues:

“For those looking for ideas for great things to do before the end of the season or looking ahead to time off during the holidays, these sites offer something appealing for all traveler types.”
