There’s nothing quite like a city where you can find a smile and a pleasant “How are you” as you walk down the street. And not even when you’re a tourist visiting the town, but just the locals being nice to each other–an inherently friendly city.
Travel + Leisure tried to rank which cities carry out this friendliness the most. They asked their readers to rank their hometown not just on hospitality toward tourists but also “manners, politeness, and warm dispositions.”
They came up with a top 20. Check them out below.
