After a year of pent-up travel demand, people are ready and willing to get back out there and explore the world again. But, rather than go on the same old vacation, travelers want to ensure their first trip back post-pandemic is a memorable one. That's why, according to Airbnb, travelers are searching for the most unique accommodations they can find, and that includes thousands of searches for "domes."

Here are what Airbnb says are the 10 most wish-listed domes across the United States that are ideal for escaping our worries, social distancing, and taking in the best that Mother Nature has to offer. This way, Airbnb says, "you can feel worlds away without traveling too far from home."
