Philadelphia ranks near the top of the website LonelyPlanet.com's list of top U.S. travel destinations for 2013.

According to LonelyPlanet.com, Philly ranked fourth among the top 10 list for, among other things, its museums.

The website even says the city is "becoming known as an art capital."

LonelyPlanet.com says every year its U.S. based editors team up with the website's authors to create the list of U.S. destinations that are "prime for the next year."

Louisville, Kentucky, Fairbanks, Alaska and the Twin Cities in Minnesota were among the others to make the list.
