While traveling abroad can be fun, sometimes it’s cheaper and even more exciting to just stay in one country. Anyone can start their trip year this way, without having to deal with all the trouble that comes with going to a different country. The US has so many fun places to visit that it can be hard to figure out where to start. However, the most popular US towns can help. People go to these places the most for many reasons, and it’s fun to see what those reasons are.
Orlando is one of the most popular tourist spots in the US, which is not a surprise. Everyone of all ages loves this place. It has lots of nature areas, lively entertainment centers, exciting theme parks with thrilling rides, and interesting zoos.

With all it has to offer, it’s safe to say that it hasn’t hit its full potential yet.
Chicago gets a lot of people every year because it is one of the most popular places to visit in the country. In 2019, about 60 million of the 120 million visitors to the state came to Chicago. This was about half of all tourists to the state.

Los Angeles, California
California has a lot of interesting places to visit, but the city of Los Angeles is still the most popular. The city had a huge 50 million guests in 2018, and that number went up to about 51 million in 2019. No matter how many tourists the city may have lost because of the pandemic, it will still hit its previous high point. In Los Angeles, you can find some of the best entertainment in the country. It’s home to Hollywood and many other entertainment areas. There are also beaches, museums, wildlife parks, and historical sites in Los Angeles.
Seattle is popular with tourists from all over the world because it has so many natural and man-made sights. Fourteen million people visited the city and its areas in the year before the pandemic and spent more than eight billion dollars there.

People who want to help make that happen can visit in the new year.
