#1 New York, USA
New York may not be the best place to visit during the summer since it is hot, there are few people and the whole atmosphere is not at its best, but fall is surely a better time of the year to visit the city. You could enjoy all the autumn colors of Central Park. You can feed the ducks there, have a cup of nice coffee and stroll around all the iconic New York Places, like Times Square and the Statue of Liberty.
