Travel guide Lonely Planet has released its top U.S. places to visit in 2015, with Queens in New York City taking the top spot.
While the announcement may seem like an upset for Manhattan, Queens is celebrated for its diversity of food, cultures and upcoming art scene.
“In recent years, Queens has seen the rise of microbreweries, boutique hotels, a reinvented seaside and a burgeoning art scene – all of which has given a big boost to local pride,” according to the Lonely Planet.
