From the Editor embark Travelers’ Choices ★ cover photo by chris M. rogers Earlier this year, TripAdvisor ( asked its millions of users, presumably active travelers, to name their favorite destinations. The top three are hardly a surprise: Paris, New York City, and London. But looking at U.S. destination choices beyond New York, there are a few you might not expect. TripAdvisor released the top 20 domestic choices from its reader poll. After New York as the first choice, San Francisco, Chicago, Las Vegas, and Orlando fill out the top five. The latter two, while not huge population centers, are after all America’s most iconic playgrounds. Numbers six through ten are held by DC, Boston, LA, Honolulu, and New Orleans. Not much to secondguess in this group. By Lance Elko But numbers ten through 20 hold a few perhaps unexpected choices. In the number 13 slot, amid a host of much larger cities with major attractions, is Sedona, Arizona. One of the nation’s most beautiful locations, the town itself has a population just over 10,000. Other locales in the top 20 dwarfed by big-buzz metro areas include Savannah, Napa, and Lahaina, Hawaii. Garnering two slots on the top 20 list, the Aloha State continues its decades-long draw for tourists from the mainland. And our cover story touts a different but no less desirable Hawaiian hot spot: Maui. Check it out starting on page 54. Until next time around, enjoy your flight. ® The Story Behind the Stories @USAirwaysMag FOR THOSE THAT WANT IT TO LAST FOREVER...
