LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 25, 2012) - We may be in the thick of winter, but many Americans are actively planning spring and summertime getaways. To help, BBOnline (www.bbonline.com), a popular online portal for travelers to discover and book unique bed and breakfast inns online, today announced its predictions for the Top 10 Hottest Bed & Breakfast Vacation Destinations in 2012.

To assemble the list, BBOnline analyzed visitor behavior trends over the past several years to decipher which destinations have been seeing the most interest and the most bookings.

"BBOnline.com recently underwent a complete redesign and we thought this data would probably be of value to the innkeeping community and the travel industry at large, so we decided to share it," said Nicola Marconato, director of BBOnline.com.

The list is as follows:
