There’s nothing like travel to make you feel like a different person. And apparently a lot of people want to feel like a Keebler elf.

Airbnb released its lists of the top “Wish Listed” properties and destinations by users on the travel site. The Wish List feature allows guests to save their favorite listings. Airbnb looked at the kinds of listings people were saving, going back to 2012 when the site launched, and compiled the top 10 locations, types of listings and properties around the world.

It’s unsurprising that people like the novelty of staying in treehouses and prefer hot-weather destinations like Belize. It is interesting to note, however, that the top listing was for a treehouse in Buckhead in Atlanta and that the top wish listed U.S. destination is Savannah, GA, beating out California and Hawaii. It appears Georgia has a tight grip on Airbnb?

The Wish Lists are usually aspirational, so these are mostly based on people’s fantasies of travel instead of places they’ve actually been. But, isn’t that the magic of wanderlust?

Read all the lists below and start planning your next fantasy—erm, vacation—now.
