Travel Inspiration: Where To Go In 2016

It’s a big world out there. And what better time to explore it than when it’s boots-and-scarves weather in Chicago. In order to narrow down a list of travel destinations for 2016, we turned to Chicago Uber riders to see where they recently jetted off to. We looked at rider behavior between November 24, 2015 (the Tuesday before Thanksgiving) and January 5, 2016 (the Tuesday after New Year’s Eve) to determine the top 16 cities where the most Chicagoans visited.

Curious about the number 1 city? Put it this way, Chicagoans love to take a bite out of the Big Apple.
