The world’s leading travel media company, Lonely Planet came out with its annual list of top 10 places in the United States to visit in 2015.

Next stop….. Queens, with 2.3 million residents,  – the king of US travel destinations!

One of the world’s most diverse county, Queens, N.Y., was selected as the best tourism destination in the United States for 2015, followed by western South Dakota; New Orleans, LA.

“Queens is finally emerging from the shadows of Manhattan to take its place as one of New York’s most fascinating boroughs,” the guidebook’s writers said.
