City claims top spot for second year in a row

ORLANDO, Fla. – For the second year in a row, Orlando has been named the top summer vacation destination. 

The list is based on vacations booked with AAA's travel agency.

Travel experts say Orlando is a popular destination due to the area's theme parks and the proximity to beaches. 

The City Beautiful was followed by Honolulu, Hawaii; Anchorage, Alaska; Seattle, Washington; and Los Angeles/Anaheim, California. 

No other Florida cities made the list. 

Rome was ranked the top international travel destination.
