American Express Travel says the best time to visit Copenhagen is every season except winter.
The city’s bike-friendly infrastructure allows visitors to get around more easily and explore parks like the famous Tivoli Garden and its charming canals.
Only two U.S. destinations made the top 10 — the Florida Keys and Woodstock, Vermont.
The Florida Keys, known for its beautiful beaches, comprises five areas: Key West, the Lower Keys, Marathon, Islamorada, and Key Largo. The most famous of these is Key West. It’s home to historical buildings like Hemingway’s Home and great seafood.
On the other hand, Woodstock, Vermont, is a leaf-peeper’s paradise. The town is most known for the Billings Farm & Museum and being home to the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park.
