9 of the world’s 15 unfriendliest cities are in America

According to a yearly poll conducted by Travel and Leisure on the globe’s most unfriendly, rudest cities, the Americans appear most on the list starting with the city that paved the way for the country in the early seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, Boston.

The nation’s capital, which serves as headquarters to the political elite and traffic-induced migraines, follows its American counterpart in Boston just two spots ahead at No. 13.

Shortly thereafter, South Beach, home to one of the densest populations of Cubans outside of Cuba, sits at No. 12.

Eerily enough, most of the American cities are situated along the eastern seaboard and some of them were key battle arenas in the first and second American Revolutions. Three prime casino resorts in the U.S., Las Vegas (No. 9), Baltimore (No. 8) and Atlantic City (No. 2), see themselves in-between cities that either have over-population, commuting issues or have a bad smell in terms of politics and the unwillingness of locals to help a foreign traveler.

And just because one may live in a city wrapped in sunlight year-round (Miami, Los Angeles) or is surrounded by vineyards and waterways (Cannes, Marseille), doesn’t always mean you’ll be greeted by the most rosy of residents.
