They say it’s a good time to travel while you’re still young. Forget the expenses because what you will learn will be more valuable. Another saying goes, “we travel not to escape life but for life not to escape us”. Feeling inspired now to go different places? Let us, the America Top 10 team, help you decide in choosing among the top travel destinations for Americans.
We’ve come up with a short list of top travel destinations which comprises a diverse and widespread group of hot spots for American travelers, from Korea to Mexico to the Bahamas.
Great Britain, United Kingdom
The United Kingdom is the highest-ranked international destination for Americans and it has held that title for years. Why so? Some say that Americans feel at home in the U.K. and that they feel that they’re going somewhere different, but also they fell that they are home. It may also be because Americans appreciate the common language and culture. Top destinations in the U.K. include Scotland, Wales, and the Southwest and north of England.
Nassau, The Bahamas
The Bahamas attracts millions of U.S. visitors every year because of its spectacular beaches and stretches of vivid coral reefs perfect for snorkeling. You guys can also shop, dine, and go sightseeing, particularly along busy Bay Street. The city still has its historic charms too.
Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
The Dominican Republic has always been a popular beach destination for Americans. Its beach town is now widely recognized as an inexpensive paradise which is also flight-hopping distance. Punta Cana is also known for being one of the best golf destinations in the world. It’s best to do a day trip at Santa Domingo, the historic capital of Dominican Republic.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
It is indeed a U.S. territory but its definitely a different place altogether. Its cobblestone streets and pastel-color houses will amaze you. Visit El Viejo San Juan which consists mostly of Spanish colonial buildings to get a feel of Puerto Rico history too. Want to relax instead? The seaside neighborhood of Condado has the most popular beaches with its golden-sand shore.
Fourteen miles of amazing beaches, a carnival-style nightlife, and family resorts that cater to those who want to experience the tropical Yucatan climate, who could forget Cancun, Mexico? There are so many places to visit if you want a feel of their history too, including Museo Sensorial del Tequila, El Rey, and the Yamil Lu’um. Cancun has also been a top American destination for years.
Millions of Americans flood the streets of Paris every year. Although you don’t really need to visit the Eiffel Tower to appreciate it (it can be seen from almost anywhere in the city), it’s worth a ride to the top to see the amazing city from there. Not to mention, everything tastes better in Paris, so try a fresh baguette or a steak béarnaise.
Seoul, South Korea
Seoul is the business and cultural center of South Korea which Americans go thousands of miles to see. They say that, whatever you want, at any time of day or night, Seoul can provide. Here, you will definitely see night markets, a lot of K-Pop, temples, and skyscrapers. We suggest visiting the grounds and museums of Gyeongbokgung too.
