Travel+Leisure Ranks Williamsburg As One Of The Top Cities In The U.S.

WILLIAMSBURG- Travel+Leisure magazine recently announced results of its 26th Annual World’s Best Awards for 2021, which ranks top travel destinations and companies in the United States and around the world. Williamsburg, VA made the list, coming in at #9 on the list of Top U.S. Cities.

Also included in the top 10 are Charleston, SC; Santa Fe, NM; Savannah, GA; New Orleans, LA; New York City, NY; San Antonio, TX; Chicago, IL; Bend, OR; and Honolulu, HI.

Voting for this year’s World’s Best Awards survey took place from January 11 through May 10. Readers rated cities based on their sights and landmarks, culture, cuisine, friendliness, shopping, and overall value. Williamsburg made the list due in part to the Historic Area and other attractions.

“A recognition like this speaks to the world-class caliber of the region’s activities, attractions, food, drink, shopping, and more,” said Victoria Cimino, CEO of Visit Williamsburg, which is affiliated with the Williamsburg Tourism Council.  “Amidst the most extreme challenges ever faced by the hospitality industry, the Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards 2021 are the authority for trip planning and advice as leisure travel continues to rebound. Visit Williamsburg is committed to promoting the region through its award-winning marketing efforts; this honor confirms increased awareness for the destination and all that it has to offer.”
