Moving on Up - Boston Ranked 8th Busiest Travel Destination in U.S. by Orbitz
According to a recent survey conducted by Orbitz, Boston jumped two places in their annual ranking when they were named the 8th busiest travel destination in 2007. In 2006, Boston was ranked the 10th most popular place to visit. Orbitz bases rankings on bookings from the website. This leads me to conclude either more people are travelling to Boston or those who liked travelling to Boston in 2007 preferred to use Orbitz. Regardless, I think it gives Boston bragging rights - our little city or big town (depending on your perspective) ranks as the nation's 24th largest by population so to crack into the Orbitz top ten is impressive.
