The Big Island is the second-favorite leisure destination among some 6,000 elite users of the Expedia.com travel site.

The company asked thousands of its most frequent travelers, who collectively took more than 25,000 trips, for their most and least favorite airports, cities with the best and worst food and beverage offerings, and leisure and business destinations, among other questions.

Hawaii ranked second in the leisure destination list, topped by Las Vegas. San Francisco, New York, and Orlando, Fla., came in after Hawaii.

The favorite airport of the Expedia elite was Atlanta, which also offers their favorite food and beverage options. However, Atlanta also was chosen as the least favorite airport, and users said Los Angeles International Airport had the worst food and beverage offerings.

New York was the favorite destination for business, and also the most-favored destination for food and drinks.
