Four Southern Cities Make ‘Strangest’ List Posted by: Dan | 0 Comments
Travel and Leisure has surveyed Americans to find out where they’ve encountered the most lovably kooky citizens. Surprise! Surprise! A few Southern places made the list.
In fact, even though you’d probably imagine New York City had a comfy spot among the upper echelons of this list, it turns out a Southern city made the top of the list. NYC sits at Number 8. When there’s three Southern cities on the list above you, it’s time to step it up, Big Apple.
Here’s a sample from the story:
Such full-service eccentricity made New Orleans a natural contender for the nation’s strangest people, based on votes in the offbeat category of T+L’s annual America’s Favorite Cities survey. Readers rank 35 metropolitan areas for features such as live music and food trucks as well as their residents—be they smart, attractive, or, indeed, lovably weird. Certainly, New Orleans had some tough competition in the offbeat category. Austin, TX, and Portland, OR, have staked their reputations on quirky hipster charm, while Savannah, GA, Santa Fe, NM, and New York have deep traditions of colorful local characters.
What do you think? Which Southern cities would you add to the list?
