U.S. News & World Report has released a new survey that asks Millennials to name their favorite countries, which could provide insights into top destinations that would appeal to a Millennial traveler. 

The data is pulled from U.S. News & World Report’s Best Countries platform, which invited 6,000 Millennials around the world to score nations on criteria ranging from dating culture to career development. 

Of most potential interest is the picks for Overall Best Country, which indicates countries that have generally positive associations in the minds of Millennials — associations that could drive travel decisions. Canada led the list of overall best picks, followed by Germany, the United Kingdom, Japan and the United States
