AAA Reveals Hot Destinations for 2013
As 2012 comes to a close, many travelers are already starting to make vacation plans for next year. As the largest leisure travel agency in North America, AAA Travel is releasing its list of hot destinations and travel trends for 2013.

Top International Destinations: London, Paris & Ireland
London consistently ranks as a top international travel destination. A couple of things will make it even more popular in 2013, including increased tourism following last summer's Olympic Games, and the arrival of Prince William and Kate Middleton's baby this summer.

Paris is one of the most visited cities in the world, welcoming more than 27 million visitors each year. The city is rich in art, culture and history. Another draw is its world renowned museums and landmarks, such as the Louvre and Eiffel Tower.

In 2013, Ireland will celebrate The Gathering, a year-long celebration of all things Irish. The celebration will kick off at the New Year's Eve Festival in Dublin and will be celebrated at events throughout 2013, making it a great year to visit.

North America Destinations: New York City, Northern California & Canada
New York City continues to be one of the most popular destinations in the United States. From the Statue of Liberty to Rockefeller Center to Times Square and Central Park, it's impossible to experience everything this destination has to offer in a single trip.

Northern California is continuing to grow in travel popularity, especially among Arizonans. San Francisco is one of the top tourist destinations in Northern California, renowned for its cable cars, rolling hills, and landmarks including the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz Island. Northern California is also home to Wine Country, which is another draw for tourists.

Canada is a big country that's full of unique places to explore. In recent years, it has also become an increasingly popular destination, especially among Arizonans. One of the best ways to experience Canada is by rail, which gives travelers a front-row ticket to the picturesque, majestic country.

2013 Travel Trends
One travel trend that emerged in 2012 and will continue in 2013 is group travel for women. AAA Travel also expects culinary and philanthropic trips to continue to emerge as travel trends in 2013.
