Ireland, Myanmar, New Zealand and Marseille may have topped the list, but Coney Island is listed as one of the only American sites on the Associated Press' 2013 travel list.

The AP made sure to highlight post-Sandy east coast beach towns like Coney Island, probably as a show of good will to areas impacted by October's superstorm.

"On Coney Island, in Brooklyn, N.Y., the landmark Cyclone and Wonder Wheel rides are in good condition along with other amusement park attractions and are expected to reopen in spring as usual, along with the famous hot dog eatery Nathan's and the home stadium for the Cyclones minor league baseball team. The New York Aquarium at Coney has been closed due to damage from flooding but hopes to reopen some if not all exhibits by summer."
