When the people in your state sit down to search for flights overseas, where do they want to go?
If you live in Illinois, it's Poland. If you're in Massachusetts, Ireland of course! And Kansas? Well, the Philippines, naturally.
Wait, huh? Ok, so a new study by Hopper tried to identify every state's favorite international destination, by comparing their searches (not purchased tickets) to the national average. Residents of Illinois search for Poland at least 239 percent more than people in other states, obviously because Chicago has a crazy number of Poles. The same could be said of New Yorkers wanting to visit the Dominican Republic. More New Yorkers actually search for Italy, but when compared to all other states, the Dominican Republic is their top choice.
