(KGTV) — A new ranking on the best destinations of the year placed a shining light on America's Finest City.

San Diego, needless to say, will be garnering more fans this year.

The city ranked sixth on the list for top U.S. destinations in 2019, according to travelers' reviews. San Diego ranked behind New York City, Maui and Oahu, Las Vegas, and Orlando as other top destinations.

The top destinations were awarded based on reviews, and ratings of hotels, restaurants, and experiences over a year.

So where in San Diego should visitors go? TripAdvisor recommends veering off the beaten trail, where visitors may find more authentic experiences away from tourist hot spots.

"For those who want to cross these popular destinations off their travel bucket list, we recommend visiting during off-peak seasons when you can find great savings and less crowds," said Desiree Fish, vice president of global communications for TripAdvisor.
