The car-sharing service recently compiled their annual trends and predictions report, and in it, they included the most popular tourist destinations of 2018. So what attraction took the top spot? None other than the Empire State Building. But that wasn’t the only interesting location on the list. Several well-known attractions were included in the roundup.

Here’s the complete list.

  1. Empire State Building
  2. Freedom Tower
  3. CN Tower
  4. Arc de Triomphe
  5. Eiffel Tower
  6. Burj Khalifa
  7. Buckingham Palace
  8. Disneyland
  9. Golden Gate Bridge
  10. Sydney Opera House
  11. The Blue Mosque
  12. Berlin Wall
  13. The Vatican
  14. Christ the Redeemer
  15. Great Pyramid of Giza

Of course, that doesn’t mean these are (or were) the most trafficked sites. This list was compiled by Uber using rider data, meaning these were the most popular destinations for the car-sharing service.

According to the official website for the Empire State Building, the 103-story building sees an average of 4 million visitors annually, and over 1.5 million tourists visit the CN Tower in Toronto.

Uber didn’t offer any insight as to why New York took the top two spots, but it could be due to the car-sharing service’s large presence in the city. It could also be due to the late-night vibes.

True to its name, New York also took the top spot for the most rides after 2:00 a.m.
