America’s top global travel destinations might surprise you
Ok, close your eyes and think of where you would go if you could go anywhere in the world. Now, let’s compare that to America’s top global travel destinations. We picked London, Paris and Barcelona. Turns out, we only got 1 out of the 3 right.
That’s because the top 3 travel destinations are Cancun, Toronto, and London. What’s more, it’s in that order. Cancun came in at 5.3%, Toronto at 4.6% and London at 4.1%. At least, that’s what Mastercard says are America’s top travel destinations in their Global Destination City Index for 2019.
To be fair, that’s actually a pretty reasonable top 3. Cancun is definitely the most popular Mexican city amongst our friends. And while most of them would go to Vancouver before Toronto, that’s probably because we’re on the West coast.
London also makes sense as the top choice for Europe. A city that’s still massive and a completely different style, but is fully English speaking. We’re sure that people don’t really want to have to fumble through grade 6 Spanish in Barcelona.
