The ranking comes as a result of Conde Nast’s Reader’s Choice Awards 2018, which allows the publication’s vast readership to vote on everything from the best islands in the US to the top hotels in Japan.

Chicago’s amazing architecture, booming foodie scene, and groundbreaking museums were all cited by respondents as leading reasons for the city’s top ranking. Oh, and did we mention this is Chicago’s second year in the top spot?

Other cities rounding out the Top 10 included:

  1. Chicago, Illinois
  2. New York, New York
  3. New Orleans, LA
  4. San Fransisco, CA
  5. Honolulu, Hawaii
  6. San Antonio, TX
  7. San Diego, CA
  8. Seattle, WA
  9. Portland, OR
  10. Boston, MA

I guess we can finally say goodbye to the “Second City” – ’cause it looks like we’re now officially number one.
