PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Lonely Planet, the top travel guidebook publisher in the world, today released its annual list of the "Top 10 U.S. Destinations for 2013," and Philadelphia landed high atop the list in the number four position based on its strong arts scene. The locations—both emerging and perennial favorites—were selected and ranked by the company's team of U.S.-based editors and authors. Other destinations on the list include: Louisville, Kentucky; Fairbanks, Alaska; Eastern Sierra, California; and Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota.
