Miami is America’s Rudest City, Survey Says

Move over, NYC

Move over, New York City. You’re no longer the rudest city in America.

Miami has taken that honor, according to Travel + Leisure readers in their latest America’s Favorite Places survey.

Last year’s runner-up is now the top dog when it comes to our readers’ impressions of rudeness. It’s hard to imagine how anyone could be in a bad mood here, what with the city’s perennial tropical weather and pristine beachfront real estate. After all, it ranked as one of the best cities in the country for a Beach Getaway. But maybe it’s Miami’s display of luxury, from gleaming new condos to couture boutiques, that turned off travelers. In addition to rudeness, the city had a pretty high snob score.

Their Top 5 is below:

  1. Miami
  2. Phoenix
  3. New York City
  4. Los Angeles
  5. Philadelphia

Well, it's tough to defend Miami here.
