That Vegas is in the top ten is not surprising. That Vegas is #3 ahead of Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Washington, however, is disturbing.

What's so disturbing about people wanting to gamble and have sex?

The disturbing thing is that the figures are for international tourists. If I want to gamble, I don't need no Bellagio, MGM Grand or whatever. And if I want paid sex, I'm 20 miles away from Belgium so... There must be a great lot of disappointment for foreign tourists going there, travelling thousand of miles to just sit somewhere around South Las Vegas Blvd, among Elvis clones and card tricks.

Especially as most international visitors to Vegas will have at least passed through customs at one of the major international airports

Major food destination? Shows? Atmosphere? Las Vegas was the first answer I entered. Never mind that I live two blocks from the strip, I knew it would be near the top.

it's not really very close. But you could go to Vegas and take a side trip to the Grand Canyon if you wanted to.

Deserved or not, Las Vegas has established a reputation internationally. I would advise anyone who asks me to never visit the place... but I talk to people all the time overseas who wish to visit there. often they are people who have never been to the US before and can't name more than a handful of other cities but they are aware of Las Vegas from movies and TV shows etc.

Sadly, people place a higher priority on Disney World and busting at the slots rather than seeing one of the most beautiful cities in America, with lots of history about the very country they visit.

Yamaneko: it's true. Washington is a criminally underrated destination for tourists. But I'd wager that 50-70% of tourists are not especially saavy when it comes to picking out destinations and they just go to places that are famous for receiving tourists. Washington for some reason doesn't have a high profile, but there is so much to see and do there. Definitely a more worthwhile trip than going to Vegas. Though I'm not sure about Orlando, I actually like Disney World.

Don't forget the quiz was about international tourists not US citizens. I have been to DC and all though I agree that it was a nice city I would much rather visit Universal Studios and Disney in Orlando or go check out a show in Vegas or NYC as oppose to learning about US presidents and monuments. The stats clearly shows that the rest of the world agrees. Fun will always beat learning! After all which would you pick. Ottawa my nation's capital or Toronto / Montreal our largest cities? Ottawa is stunning but I think you'd pick the other two.

Ottawa is not really comparable to Washington. Come on. And there is a lot more to do in Washington than learn about presidents. But I would concede that Orlando and New York both make better tourist destinations. I would disagree that Vegas does. If I had to pick between visiting the MGM Grande or the Air & Space Museum and had never done either before, the 2nd option would be far more appealing.

High crime rate, financial problems, failed Olympics bid a few years ago, failing to get the Star Wars museum recently, no recent major tourist attractions... I certainly tried Chicago while taking the quiz, but the more I think about it, I'm not really surprised we didn't make the list.

And, good "vacation weather" is limited to less than half the year. Also, for overseas tourists, it's additional distance to travel to the interior of the US.

@Freestatebear Traveling to Chicago at least shouldn't be a problem for many Europeans, seeing as Chicago's main AIRPORT is one of, if not the, busiest in the world. I've been through there and they do indeed have lots of international flights. (Although I've only flown internationally out of Atlanta.)

I visited Chicago a couple times and loved it there, though the first time was almost 30 years ago. Back when the Sears Tower was still the tallest in the world. Agree about the poor weather, though. Any time other than summer is miserable.

I was sort of surprised it wasn't on the list, but it's probably because it asks for international. I found Chicago fascinating when I went, and there are a lot of attractions. Navy pier, Shedd aquarium, the Field Museum, Willis(Sears) Tower, and the science museum were all a lot of fun. They also have the best deep dish pizza in Chicago. It is possible that foreign people are less likely to visit the interior of the country because it's one extra flight, being that most of these stops are on or very near to the coast.

I agree. I had the luck of visiting (I'm from germany) and found it the architecturally most interesting US city I've been to and also liked the spirit and atmosphere paired with the cuisine better than anywhere else (I've also been to Seattle, San Francisco and Boston).

That's definitely why, though the other theme parks built in the area have no doubt pushed it higher than it otherwise would have been if they only had Disney World.

Always thought of Hawaii as an American destination... thought international tourists would rather go to the Caribbean Islands or French Polynesia or the Maldives, etc.
