TripAdvisor: Alcatraz Is Very Best Landmark In The USA?? Print

The website asked travel-savvy readers to vote for its annual Travelers Choice Awards. Angkor Wat, the ancient temple in Cambodia, won for the second straight year.

Alcatraz Island in San Francisco Bay was tops in the USA, and No. 8 in TripAdvisor world rankings. Of course, everyone is much more eager to see Al Capone’s former residence, rather than such uninteresting American locations as the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone Park, Statue of Liberty, Independence Hall, Lincoln Memorial and Mount Rushmore.
