Lonely Planet has just discovered what we New Yorker's have known all along, Queens rocks. Every year, the travel guide giant releases a list of amazing cities to visit and up-and-coming regions of the U.S. to keep an eye on. This year, our largest borough received the #1 spot on that list.

Queens, New York’s largest borough, is also quickly becoming its hippest, but most travelers haven't clued in… yet. With microbreweries springing up, new boutique hotels, a reinvented seaside at Rockaway, a world-class art scene, and a truly global food culture, 2015 is the year to try Queens.

Of course, the guides are marketed towards tourists so you may find only surface level tips on the borough inside it's pages, but it's worth a quick glance, especially now that Lonely Planet has made the Queens guide free for a limited time.
