What U.S. cities do visitors like most? The first J.D. Power 2016 Destination Experience Satisfaction Study sought to answer that question by polling 26,000 travelers who visited a U.S. metropolitan area between December 2015 and July 2016. The study measured the overall satisfaction among visitors to the top 50 U.S. travel destinations for business or leisure, based on six factors: activities, cost and fees, food and beverage, infrastructure, lodging and the travel/arrival experience. Following are the top 20 cities and their scores out of a possible 1,000 points.
