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."
