We're Number One (In Some Stuff)

By Margaret Lyons in Miscellaneous on Oct 11, 2007 8:00PM


Travel + Leisure, and Headline News tag-teammed a really arbitrary survey of 60,000 people about the "best" cities. And we did pretty OK, so...awesome poll guys! According to the story, we have the best skyline and the worst weather. Worse than Minneapolis. Ouch, dudes. Ouch.

We ranked first out of 25 cities in: best food and dining overall, best pizza, best home design shopping, best business trip (that's secretly fun), and sports' fan vacation. We gladly accept these honors, even though we also came in 10th in cleanliness, 15th in farmers markets, 12th in friendliness, 11th in attractiveness of citizenry (burn!), 17th in relaxing-ness and 12th in "characteristics (overall)."
