New Orleans Named World’s 19th Friendliest City by Conde Nast Traveler

Condé Nast Traveler released its annual Readers’ Choice Awards survey on the friendliest–and least friendly–cities in the world earlier this week. Coming in at #19 was our hometown of New Orleans, a city that is often described as warm in both the literal and figurative senses of the word.

The Big Easy was beaten out by eight American towns–Charleston, SC (#1), Park City, UT (#5), Savannah, GA (#7), Nashville, TN (#10), Austin, TX (#12), Santa Fe, NM (#13), Asheville, NC (#14), Jackson, WY (#18). Those happen to be the same eight cities were ahead of us on last year’s list, proving that Condé Nast Traveler readers are nothing if not consistent.

Take a look at the full list here.
