The travel site TripAdvisor recently released its list of top destinations according to travelers. To determine the top cities, TripAdvisor collected feedback over a 12-month period from their site, which consisted of top searches and reviews for unique accommodations (like Bora Bora Hotels), restaurants, and attractions. With summer right around the corner, you can’t go wrong with booking a week away to one of these destination hotspots. Ditch the business casual attire, escape the screen of your iPhone or Samsung Galaxy and go out on an adventure.
Top TripAdvisor U.S. Pick: New York
TripAdvisor awarded the top destination in the U.S. to the city that never sleeps. In one day visitors to New York can visit Central Park, ride the Staten Island ferry, and take in the atmosphere at Time Square. These major attractions are just a small sample of the many free things you can do in New York. The sidewalks are always filled with people, which makes for great people watching. Just leave your iPhone or Samsung Galaxy in your pocket, or you’re bound to bump into one of the 8 million New Yorkers.
No iPhone at the Tables, Please
Las Vegas takes the second spot in TripAdvisor’s list of the top U.S. cities to visit. TripAdvisor states the city’s reputation as an entertainment hub continues to drive tourists in. With some of the biggest casinos and amazing shows, the Las Vegas Strip has something for everybody. Things in Las Vegas can get crazy, so best keep your iPhone or Samsung Galaxy in your room at all times. You don’t want what happens in Vegas to eventually follow you home.
I’m Going to Disney World
TripAdvisor places Orlando in the third spot of the top U.S. cities to visit. Orlando is the family hotspot with Disney World, Universal Studios, and SeaWorld all less than 20 miles away. With roller coasters, shows, and lovable character, each park brings a unique style that will satisfy any family. If you’re hoping to snap a few family selfies with your iPhone or Samsung Galaxy and your selfie stick, you’re out of luck. Most major parks have now banned the use of selfie sticks.
Visiting the Windy City
The home of President Obama and Kanye West, takes the fourth spot of the top U.S. cities to visit. Highlights of Chicago include Wrigley Field, Millennium Park, and the Navy Pier. The city’s sport history is rich with championships and all-stars, and the venues themselves are worth a visit. If you happen to have your iPhone or Samsung Galaxy on you, pictures in front of Cloud Gate make for some fun.
Put Down the Samsung Galaxy and Explore the Bay
Rounding out the top five U.S. cities is the city by the bay. San Francisco offers visitors the chance to cross the Golden Gate Bridge, visit Alcatraz, and ride through the city on cable cars. With so much to do in the city, one thing that cannot be passed over is the view at the San Francisco Bay.
