Are you looking to plan your summer vacation? It’s never too early. Or maybe you’re still in the spring planning mode- I definitely am. If you are unsure where you want to visit, consulting TripAdvisor is a great place to start. The vacation rating platform recently released its Best of The Best awards for 2023. One of the categories they published is the most popular travel destination in the United States. There are some great vacation hotspots on this list- some you’d expect, and others that are a little surprising. And it was great to see one of the North Carolina tourist destinations getting some national recognition from TripAdvisor.
It’s a city that comes up very often on these types of lists, and for good reason. Below you’ll find the 25 most popular tourist destinations in the United States according to TripAdvisor. I’ve been lucky enough to visit the majority of these locations and some of the ones I haven’t visited are on my bucket list. And you also most likely have one or two of these destinations on your list of dream vacays. And there is a good reason why people love them. Have you been to the North Carolina city that TripAdvisor named one of the most popular tourist destinations in the United States? Do you think it’s worthy of this honor?
