After analyzing the cities where bookings have doubled, tripled, or more throughout the past year, the property-rental company released a list of 20 up-and-coming respites around the world. Some of the places are clear across the globe—like Dunedin, New Zealand—and others, as far as your passport is concerned at least, are practically in your backyard—like Indianapolis, Indiana.

So, what are you waiting for? Make plans to see the world via these trending destinations before an onslaught of touristy attractions compromise their charm.
