Boston was named one of the top places in the world to visit by magazine Travel + Leisure in its annual list released Monday. Our fair city made a list that includes lots of exciting places around the globe, including Dubai, Singapore, St. Barts, and other hotspots in the United States.

The magazine cited an influx of new restaurants and luxury lodgings for why Boston made the list, calling us “the country’s next great hotel city.”

Locales called out include the new Four Seasons One Dalton, the Whitney Hotel on Beacon Hill, and classically styled hotel the Newbury, which will make its debut next summer. On the food front, the magazine highlights Time Out Market in the Fenway, Zuma at One Dalton, and Peregrine at the Whitney.


Travel + Leisure also noted Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama’s infinity room installation at the ICA.

The magazine said it compiled the list by surveying its network of travel advisers and compiling research that included “scouring tourism statistics, scoping out major events, charting new flight routes, and logging hotel debuts.”
