The top spot is Florida, mostly thanks to Miami and Orlando. Not only is the culture and scenery beautiful in the 305, but Florida has some of the most popular parks in the nation. Some of these include Disney World, Universal Studios and SeaWorld Orlando. Panama City Beach also offers a lot of fun in the sun.

California is second. With Hollywood and Los Angeles alone, California would have made it to the top 5, but there are several other locations that helped push it to number two. Disneyland, the Golden Bridge, SeaWorld, Yosemite National Park, and many more are popular locations.

In third place is New York, famously known as the city that never sleeps. This place is one of the most popular vacation spots year round. Personally though, I would prefer visiting during the fall or winter season.

Nevada lands on number four – well, the Las Vegas Strip does - the most famous resort for gambling and entertainment. Las Vegas is the spot to get your party on, it’s often referred to as a giant playground for grown-ups.

Finally, Texas is number five. The San Antonio Riverwalk is one of the most visited places in Texas, along with the Alamo City. Also bringing in a large number of tourists is SeaWorld San Antonio, Fiesta Texas, Six Flags over Texas, South Padre Island, and many more.
