The ranking comes as result of Conde Nast’s Reader’s Choice Awards 2017, which allows the publication’s vast readership to vote on everything from the best islands in America to the top hotels in Japan.


Though we definitely appreciate the love, we’ve just got to ask: how did NYC not come in first? What with our unbeatable nightlife scene, unreal food and first-rate museums, we just simply cannot accept second seed, especially to Chicago.

Other cities rounding out the Top 10 included:

  1. Chicago, Illinois
  2. New York, New York
  3. San Francisco, California
  4. Honolulu, Hawaii
  5. Boston Massachusetts
  6. Washington, D.C.
  7. New Orleans, Louisiana
  8. San Diego, California
  9. Seattle, Washington
  10. San Antonia, Texas

I guess we’ll just have to settle for NYC being number one in our hearts.
