Las Vegas once again has ranked among the top travel destinations.

TripAdvisor ranked Las Vegas No. 5 in the country in its 2017 Travelers' Choice Awards.

"Vegas can satisfy a variety of vacation tastes, including great meals from renowned chefs, access to some of the world’s premier casinos, and the ability to see spectacular shows on the Strip," TripAdvisor wrote.

TripAdvisor based the rankings on the quantity and quality of reviews and ratings for hotels, restaurants and attractions that were gathered over a 12-month period.

Nationwide, the top ranking went to New York City, followed by Maui, Hawaii; the Big Island of Hawaii and Oahu, Hawaii.

Across the globe, the top honors went to Bali, London, Paris, Rome and New York City.
