When asked the most visited state in the nation, here's what most thought:

New York                 31%
Florida                      30%
Nevada                      11%
California                  28%

But most were wrong and the answer is California.

So, if you immediately thought of Hollywood, Disneyland, Yosemite National Park, and the Golden Gate Bridge, then your instincts are correct: California is the most visited state in the US, followed by Florida, Nevada, and Texas, respectively. 

Drawing in 250 million + visitors each year, the Golden State is quite literally bringing in the gold: $120+ billion, annually, to be precise. Often touted as one of the most beautiful and diverse state, it makes sense that it has such a large draw! Whether you’re coming for the weather, the beaches, the fame, or the glory, California does not disappoint.

And the state's five most visited sites follow:
Yosemite National Park
Universal Studios Hollywood
Hollywood Walk of Fame
The Golden Gate Bridge
