All year long, AAA sends out anonymous inspectors to snoop on North American hotels and restaurants to see which are worthy of its coveted Diamond awards.
Now inspectors (described only by their numbers) are weighing in on their favorite places to stay and eat at the travel membership organization's top 10 summer destinations, which include Anaheim (Disneyland, of course), Las Vegas and Honolulu.
AAA announced their picks Tuesday in time for vacation planning.
1. Orlando, Fla: Disney's Port Orleans Resort-Riverside and the resort's Boathouse Waterfront Dining, each rated Three Diamond. Wow factors: horse-drawn carriage rides at the resort, vintage boats inside the restaurant where you can dine on Prince Edward Island steamed mussels and Atlantic swordfish.
AAA based its list of destinations on bookings for trips between June 1 and Aug. 15. To read more about the summer favorites, go to www.AAA.com/DiamondSummer
