SAN DIEGO (CNS) – The sixth annual TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice Awards
for destinations ranked San Diego Tuesday as the seventh best tourist spot in the

According to the travel website that specializes in customer ratings of
hotels and other attractions, “San Diego embodies laid-back California
culture.”

New York City topped the U.S. list, followed by Chicago, San Francisco,
Las Vegas, New Orleans and Los Angeles. Palm Springs was ranked 17th.

According to the website, destinations throughout the South –

according to TripAdvisor. Winners were determined by using an algorithm that
took into account the quantity and quality of reviews and ratings for hotels,
attractions and restaurants in destinations worldwide, gathered over a one-year
period.
