America loves Southern California, at least according to Facebook's end-of-the-year data.

Of the social networking site's recently revealed 10 most popular domestic "check-ins" for 2012, three of the locations are in Southern California, beating out any other region.

Top spots include:

Disneyland (number 2), Dodger Stadium (number 7), and Angel Stadium (number 10).

New York's Times Square took the top check-in spot, and Yankee Stadium ranked fourth.

Universal Studios made the list, but not our own attraction in Universal City: The Florida facsimile ranked eighth.
