"Early Show" co-anchor Jeff Glor New York City has three locations on the list: Times Square, Central Park and Grand Central Terminal.

"New York City did fabulous in this list," Orwoll said on "The Early Show." "In fact, the number one destination out of the top 50 most visited tourist attractions was Times Square with 39 million people. They call it the crossroads of the world and it truly, truly is. Number two on the list, as you mentioned, (is) beautiful Central Park, one of the most beautiful urban green spaces on earth. And number six on the list was Grand Central Terminal - beautiful building right in the heart of midtown Manhattan, almost torn down in the 1960S. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis led a preservation effort to save it."

Orwoll added many of these locations are must-see spots.

"If you haven't seen them, this is a really go-to list to check off your bucket list," he said.

Las Vegas, Glor said, had an impressive showing in the line-up, considering its recent economic hardships.

Orwoll said, "As people like to say, 'Never bet against Vegas, never bet against the house,' because this place is really coming back. I think the movie 'The Hangover' from 2009 really, really sparked a lot more interest. It's the Las Vegas Strip that is the number four on this list. And people, 90 percent of the people that come to Vegas stay on the strip, and why not? You can get everything you want in Vegas right there, including some great people watching."

Glor noted the top nine locations on the Travel and Leisure magazine list are actually in the U.S.

Orwoll said those results were surprising, but it's a lot easier for Americans to visit those places.

He added, "But number 10 on the list was the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, Turkey. I've been there a couple times and it's amazing. It's a covered market that goes on forever and ever, built in the 15th century. It looks like something out of 'One Thousand and One Arabian Nights' come to life. You don't want to miss it, if you ever have a chance. "
