Watch Us Leapfrog Philly

Seattle is now Number 18! The Emerald City, for all its faults, has overtaken the City of Brotherly Love and moved up a notch on the list of American tourist destinations. That's the word from Global Insight, a Massachusetts outfit that counts visitors. The weak dollar and more convenient international flights (Air France, Lufthansa, British Airways, KLM, etc.) combined to make Seattle an attractive destination for European travelers, not to mention all that good press we've been getting (you know, green mayor, bicycle-friendly town, etc.).

The top three cities, predictably: Noo Yawk, Dizneywhirl, Vegas. We've got a ways to go if we're gonna catch up.
