3 of My Favorite Cities Are on the Unfriendliest List!

Talk. To. The. Hand.

Actually, I’m intrigued. How can the vibrant cities I love to visit be voted “unfriendly” by Travel and Leisure Magazine’s readers?

#4. Washington, D.C.

Whaaat??? Washington, D.C. has the most free attractions in the United States. Most people work for the government, charitable institutions, museums, among other “make the world a better place” organizations. Why is it on the list?

#3. Philadelphia


The City of Brotherly Love is an unfriendly city. How can the birthplace of the United States Constitution make it to this list? It’s the home of the LOVE sculpture, for goodness’ sake!!

#1. New York City

I can see how New York City took the first spot on this list.  People are always walking briskly. Yellow taxis are weaving through the streets like it’s a speedway. So, I get it.

However, I think, these cities are simply misunderstood. These are very busy cities. People mind their time more than anything else. They could barely pause and give a few minutes to a tourist with a question or two. This should not stop anyone from visiting. These three cities have so much to offer when it comes to attractions and food.

  1. As a Canadian family who frequently needed directions, we found New Yorkers extremely friendly and fun. Yes, it is a busy city but that doesn’t mean fast equals unfriendly. In fact, I can’t think of an unfriendly city that I have spent time in in the states, ever.

  2. I absolutely loved NYC and found it to be completely the opposite of unfriendly. Coming from the UK, I expected it to be like London (which I find to be quite an unfriendly city) but it was much more welcoming and laid back!
