Top travel destination in the US: Where would you go? Posted by on Oct 17, 2013 in Uncategorized


The travel website TripAdvisor has a list of the top 25 travel destinations in the United States, most of them are cities, and many of them you have probably heard of, but there are a few in this list that may be new to some people and are certainly worth looking at as they offer a little more perspective on the diversity of what there is to see in the United States.

First of all, here is the list of the top 10 travel destinations in the United States:
1. New York City, New York
2. San Francisco, California
3. Chicago, Illinois
4. Las Vegas, Nevada
5. Orlando, Florida
6. Washington, DC
7. Boston, Massachusetts
8. Los Angeles, California
9. Honolulu, Hawaii
10. New Orleans, Louisiana

These are some pretty diverse places all around the United States, but take a look at some of these other, less known places, further down the list of most visited destinations in the United States.

13. Sedona, Arizona
14. Savannah, Georgia
16. Napa, California
21. Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Let’s take a quick look at these four American destinations that didn’t make the top 10 list, but are still very special places.

Sedona is found in Arizona‘s high desert surrounded by beautiful red rock and sandstone formations. This is a small city, more like a town, with around 10,000 people and many additional tourists. Tourists often go to Sedona to enjoy outdoor adventure and to see the beautiful scenery.

Savannah, Georgia is the oldest city in the state of Georgia and a pretty old city in the United States in general.  It was established in 1773. Savannah is a small, port, city, but it attracts many tourists each year who want to look at the old buildings, interesting architecture, and enjoy the beautiful tree lined streets that have long Spanish moss hanging down from the trees.

Napa, California is found in northern California, away from the big cities of the coast. This city has a slower pace and is famous for the many nearby wineries. Many visitors go to Napa tour the local wineries and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of the area.

As the name implies, Myrtle Beach is on the coast. It is a small city on the Atlantic coast in the state of South Carolina. This is a small beach city of about 28,000 people. The summers are hot and humid, but that doesn’t keep people away, in fact most people go to Myrtle Beach in the summer to spend time in the sand and waves and on the boardwalk.

Hi there! I am one of Transparent Language's ESL bloggers. I am a 32-year-old native English speaker who was born and raised in the United States. I am living in Washington, DC now, but I have lived all over the US and also spent many years living and working abroad. I started teaching English as a second language in 2005 after completing a Master's in Applied Linguists and a Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults' (CELTA). Since that time I have taught ESL in the United States at the community college and university level. I have also gone on to pursue my doctorate in psychology and now I also teach courses in psychology. I like to stay connected to ESL learners around the world through Transparent Languages ESL Blog. Please ask questions and leave comments on the blog and I will be sure to answer them.
