         TripAdvisor® Names New Orleans One of the Top 25 Travelers' Choice U.S. Destinations

Millions of traveler reviews and opinions rank the Crescent City a top choice for travel

NEW ORLEANS, LA- June 4, 2013- New Orleans was ranked as one of the best destinations to visit in the U.S. by TripAdvisor- the world's largest travel site- alongside cities such as New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Las Vegas and San Francisco. This marks the fourth year in a row that New Orleans has won a Travelers' Choice award.

This year, New Orleans was selected as the 10th choice city based on its popularity among travelers and high ratings for top vacation spots in the country. Each year, TripAdvisor honors the top travel destinations around the world and country based on millions of traveler reviews and opinions.

"Being named a top destination by a prominent traveler community tells us that not only do these visitors love the city of New Orleans, but they want to tell others about it," said Stephen Perry, New Orleans Convention and Visitor's Bureau President and CEO. "Travelers are often the best ambassadors for New Orleans, and are excited to share the message that New Orleans has something for everyone."

The Travelers' Choice Destinations highlight 412 worldwide winners.  Barbara Messing, Chief Marketing Officer for TripAdvisor said, "These impressive destinations offer something unique for every traveler type to help them plan their next perfect trip."

TripAdvisor is the world's largest travel site. In addition to providing more than 100 million traveler reviews of hotels, restaurants and attractions, TripAdvisor also offers low price airfares, travel guides, more than 400,000 rental listings, traveler forums and more.

The New Orleans Convention & Visitors Bureau is a nationally accredited, 1,100-member destination marketing organization and the largest and most successful private economic development corporation in Louisiana.
