Good question, joan1

Within the press release you will read that the rankings are...... "based on the millions of valuable reviews and opinions from TripAdvisor travelers".... Not much to gone unfortunately.

Well I don't put much stock in these rankings...

I find it hard to believe Chicago beat out places like Hawaii... oh come on.. ( not saying theres anything wrong with Chicago but really as a holiday destination hard to buy that it comes out ahead of many other places.. lol) lets get real.

Its like the "top ten" attractions or restaurants etc they list for my hometown.. phoney baloney.

Apparently the " Number 1 Attraction in Paris " is "Hinthunt.

Come on.. that is just funny. Not saying this "hinthunt" is not perhaps a fun activity.. i have no idea.. but I am saying we all know its not the number one attraction in Paris.

Did they come up with these rankings the same way they come up with hotel and restaurant rankings?

I see that Siem Reap is in the Top 10.

In a way, it would be nice if everybody started heading somewhere else, at least for a little while. That way, all the lines would be a lot shorter...

I agree. Let everyone go visit (and overcrowd) the other cities.

I couldn't care less what TA says the best destinations are. I go where I want to go

To coin a phrase: "Fewer people go there anymore. It's too crowded!"

Coincidentally, I just heard on the radio that Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market here in Boston is the seventh most visited place in the US -- more than visit Disney World (also in the ranking). . . . . Right.
