If you’re planning on heading to the US for a holiday, one thing you’ll need to think about is your itinerary. America is a vast, sprawling company made up of very individual states. There’s certainly plenty to see and do.
The good news is that the team at PlayNJ have been doing a lot of homework. They’ve produced a really useful interactive map with a list of top destination for popular activities. You can quickly see which of 50 state attracts the most tourists, has the best gambling or the most things to do on a holiday visit.
So who’s the overall winner? While it drops down in some categories, California ranks the highest in the general category, with Texas and Florida not far behind. The map, however, gives you the chance to filter according to other factors, all of which gives you a much more detailed understanding of what each state offers.
While this doesn’t guarantee a fantastic time, states that make more from tourism are going to be better equipped to offer what you want. Again California hits the top spot with an income of just over $126 billion per year. Florida is some way behind with a shade under $90 billion and the lowest ranked is North Dakota which ekes out just $3.1 billion. Of course, you have to take into account that some states are more populous than others.
Things To Do
All this, should give you a good idea of where to post your tent pegs when you organise your next holiday to the USA. But will it guarantee you happiness? Well, the answer is no. According to the research, while California may provide a lot of amenities, Hawaii and Alaska rank one and two respectively for a happy time. You may like to consider that when you plan your trip.
