    2014-02-26

    Tourists who enjoy United States travel are aware that the country boasts a high number of popular destinations, from Disney World to the Smoky Mountains. Some of these attractions can see millions of visitors from different countries across the world each year, though certain monuments and parks see considerably more travelers than others. Love Home Swap recently published an infographic that compiled a list of the most frequently traveled attractions from around the world, with those found in the U.S. claiming seven of the 10 top spots.  

    3. Central Park
    According to its website, Central Park is one of the largest hubs for architecture, wildlife and innovation in the city of New York, with local theater shows, sports, events and a zoo that are all successful in attracting millions of visitors each year. Love Home Swap reports that more than 37 million people go to Central Park each year, whether they're interested in ice skating, bird watching or simply walking on one of the most popularly traversed paths in the world. While the source notes that travelers are more likely to visit the grounds in the early spring and summer, the park is rarely vacant as residents and visitors to the city flock to experience its charm.

    2. Times Square
    Home to Broadway and a wealth of spectacular businesses, shows and shops, it's no surprise that Times Square is the second-most popular U.S. destination. According to statistics from the source, more than 39 million people visit each year, with January, June and August being the most popular months to visit. On the official website for Times Square, it describes the number of colorful companies and businesses tourists may see, including a barrage of costumed characters and number of festivals that take place at different times throughout the year. 

    1. Las Vegas Strip
    Although New York City managed to claim two of the three top sites, Las Vegas came in first place with its Strip, which sees more than 39.5 million visitors annually, Love Home Swap reported. Hotels, casinos and colorful individuals line the streets. Historical buildings, including the Bellagio and the MGM Grand, draw millions of tourists. In addition to the bustling street life, visitors can experience one of the many entertainment shows, including magic performances, concerts and street-racing exhibits. Additionally, for individuals looking to elope or engage in bachelor or bachelorette parties, companies throughout the city offer a number of accommodations and packages available for purchase.
