Best Cities In the United States to Visit

The Top Ten Best Cities In the United States to Visit

1 New York City The City of New York, often called New York City or simply New York, is the most populous city in the United States.

I live on Long Island, so I'm super close to NYC. I go to the city at least once a year and it never gets old, there's always something new to experience there.

I love visiting Midtown. There's Times Square, Macy's, Radio City, Rockefeller Center, and 5th Ave. Best part of Manhattan!

Yes, It is a good place to visit, I would want to visit there so badly!

I want to NYC It was so fun

2 Seattle Seattle is a seaport city on the west coast of the United States. It is the seat of King County, Washington.

I Like Seattle, But San Diego (I visited LEGOLAND) Should Be Above.

San Fran sucks, I've been there. I don't know what its like to just visit but its awesome living and being here. Best place in the world (New York might be better for visiting, but I haven't been, un like San Fran)

San Francisco sucks, its way too overrated. Seattle is better. Come visit Seattle! It has friendlier people and prettier scenery. - Jackthetoptenguy5

The only bad thing about this city is the rain - Mono

3 San Diego

Wow this place should be at least in the top 4! It's so fun here! There is sea world a beautiful amusement park to visit! There is also great attractions there like balboa park.

What BS. San Diego is dull, boring, second rate, has a lot of ah...les, third rate companies and fourth rate people. I've run into the wierdo backwards scummy leftist Nazi radical feminist types with worse dangerous flipped homos who most seemed to agree with. Only beaches even more boring than the city. Say what you will about LA but at least LA is worth going to and is the only place nearby to run to if you are so unlucky to live in San Diego.

It is never too hot and never too cold there. - EpicJake

I live in San Diego It's a great place you should visit

4 Los Angeles

Many people say its to cold there blah. I live in South Dakota, it's cold.
I want to go there!

Live your life in Los Angeles.

For the win! This place is awesome... It deserves to at least be in the Top 3!

Why is this so low?. Should be higher.

It's awesome! The gondola rides at the venetian, the bellagio fountains, NY-NY rollercoaster, it should be in places 3-5

Vegas is so awesome! The Mirage volcano, the Bellagio fountains, buffets everywhere, the Forum Shops, all the hotels...they’re so cool!

21 Park City, UT

With plenty of things to do all year (hiking in the summer, skiing in the winter), as well as being close to many other attractions, such as lakes and multiple other ski resorts, this small town in Utah is perfect to be high on this list. It also has many tourist attractions and stores.

35 Pittsburgh

Great city nice people good food etc.

36 Morgantown, WV

Whats so important

37 Grand Marais

I already see some Great Lakes cities on this list, but Grand Marais is an unbelievably relaxed atmosphere. Honestly, even when it's crowded there, you don't care because it is so beautiful right on Lake Superior. Highway 61 (meaning Dylan's Highway 61) runs right through Grand Marais. It is a town of only 14-hundred, but you'll never find a more congenial host. The restaurants are fantastic, and the town is full of interesting gift shops and novelty stores. The atmosphere is rustic but not in a backwoods kind of way. It's got to be the most mellow town in America. I don't think you could have a bad time there if you tried.

38 Charleston
39 Myrtle Beach SC

There is a lot of seafood, endless swaths of beaches, piers here and there, the largest waterpark in South Carolina, golf courses...

40 Doswell VA

Kings Dominion, a Cedar Fair Park. Near DC and Richmond

41 Charlottesville
42 Baltimore

Best city to live!
No ghettos and there are never crimes.

43 Columbus, OH
44 Mammoth Lakes
45 Long Beach
