A new year means new opportunities to tick off the destinations on your bucket list. So, where are people headed?

American Express recently revealed the top trending travel destinations for 2019, based on its year-over-year (2017 versus 2018), proprietary American Express Travel 2018 booking data for trips being booked for 2019. While a few of the usual tourist hot spots — like Tuscany and the Bahamas — made the list, there were a number of surprising, far-flung locations people are jetting off to. Another twist? The two American cities that snagged spots aren't New York City or Los Angeles.
