The 23 Best Places to Go in the US in 2023

Condé Nast Traveler


For most Americans, domestic travel has long been something of a rite of passage—packed car rides to national parks, short flights to theme parks or beach rentals, and maybe some longer milestone trips to otherworldly places within the fabric of the American landscape (Alaska, Hawaii, the Rockies, Puerto Rico)—all checked off of a long list over the years. But recently, domestic travel became something more: a lifeline in a pandemic, a reminder of how fun it can be to sow your travel seeds at home, and a phenomenon that’s irreversibly transformed so many towns and cities around the country.

That’s why this year we’ve expanded our forward-looking list of the best places to go by dedicating an entire iteration to the United States, and taking a magnifying glass to the most exciting places in our backyard; both buzzy up-and-comers, and longstanding favourites with a reason to shine again. Led by news and destination trends from this year—and those we can already see coming to fruition in 2023—this list is packed with exciting new builds and success stories, from culinary and hotel renaissances to reinvigorated neighbourhoods and comeback kids in the aftermath of COVID-19’s peak.

These are the 23 best places to go in the U.S. in 2023—from the American West to the U.S.-territory islands of the Caribbean. And don’t forget to visit our global list of international destinations to visit next year, vetted by Condé Nast Traveler editors based in the U.S., U.K., Spain, and India. —Shannon McMahon and Jessica Puckett


Park City, Utah

Mid-mountain at the resort’s Silver Lake Village, Goldener Hirsch has reopened as an Auberge Resort with sprawling luxe residences equipped with chef’s kitchens, private balconies, and this winter’s new high-end concierge service (think ski outfitting and grocery shopping). There’s also Deer Valley’s two-day Taste of Luxury Series, a quarterly culinary event launched last year and hosted by Michelin-star chefs (Massimo Bottura hosts this December).
