These cities are popular for good reason, but keep in mind that a lot of people are interested in visiting them, which means they'll probably be swarmed with tourists this summer. If crowds aren't your thing, you may want to avoid these destinations altogether. And if you really want to visit one of these major cities, consider planning a trip in the off-season.

According to Family Destinations Guide, these are the 10 most popular U.S. cities to visit:

  1. Las Vegas, NV
  2. New York, NY
  3. Miami, FL
  4. San Diego, CA
  5. Chicago, IL
  6. Nashville, TN
  7. Orlando, FL
  8. New Orleans, LA
  9. San Francisco, CA
  10. Boston, MA

If you're looking for a peaceful, crowd-free vacation this summer, consider crossing these destinations off your list.
