What do the September 11 Memorial, Fort Sumter National Monument and a home built by famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright have in common?

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. The latest ranking, released this week, is based on comparing TripAdvisor search traffic from Sept. 1 through Oct. 15, 2015, against traffic from the same period this year.

New York’s September 11 Memorial, for example, saw a 425 percent increase in TripAdvisor search traffic between those two six-week periods.

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.”
