2014-15 best vacation destinations in the world

Paris still the world's top destination, according to U.S. News & World Report.

U.S. News & World Report today released its annual rankings of the World's Best Places to Visit. The new list features 25 of the most recommended vacation destinations by travel experts and consumers.

For the second year in a row, Paris held tight to the No. 1 spot, with a 79% approval rating among voters. London moved into second place with a 78% approval rating, while Barcelona took the No. 3 spot with an approval rating only a fraction lower than London's.  

The rankings identify top vacation spots based on a methodology that combines expert and consumer opinions. The 2014-15 Best Vacations rankings help travelers narrow the scope of worthwhile destinations to visit across the world. In total, more than 300 destinations were analyzed, but only a select few ranked among the best.

The U.S. Virgin Islands also saw a surge of voter approval, jumping from the No. 5 spot to the No. 1 spot and bumping the Cayman Islands into second place on the list of the Best Places to Visit in the Caribbean. And although Paris may hold the title of the World's Best, it did not trump Rome on the list of the Best Places to Visit in Europe.
