I'm really surprised Denver is so low.

I wonder what the #s will be this year. There have been a TON of huge conventions here, not to mention the DNC. Do they have to specifically stay in the city, though? I ask because I-70 is a god damned parking lot, even in the middle of nowhere, en route to the ski resorts during the winter. There are actually rush hours in the wilderness. And you see a ton of rental cars, and poor saps loaded up into the RME vans. Heh.

I feel bad for people who live places that require them to pay to make a vacation. Kinda like when I lived in Ohio...

no they don't have to stay in the city, the numbers i posted reflect total vistors, e.g. LA had 58 million visitors but just over 25 million stayed the night.

regarding conventions a huge % of las vegas revenue comes from conventions and yet the town only attracted 6 million convention goers in 2007 (about 15% of total visitors), this despite the fact that 24,000 conventions were held in vegas in 2007 and the town has 10 million sq ft of convention space

Obviously I can't speak for mobius42, but I'm from Seattle and when I travel to So. California (about 3 times a yar), sometimes I'll visit just LA and others when I'll visit just Anaheim. As an "outsider" they just seem really different to me.

Perhaps it's the number of airports in the area aside from LAX (Burbank, LB, John Wayne). In this case, there's a ton of tourists that fly into John Wayne, head over to Disneyland for 5 days, and then leave without ever seeing LA.

this list is a joke!

One word in the title alone proves it FLAWED...."select"

Please prove to me that New Orleans, Memphis or Charleston have less international appeal than say, Austin, Phoenix, Detroit or Indianapolis.....
