I’ve been to dozens and dozens of U.S. cities and love so many of them, but Boston and Charleston, SC are my two favorites.
High Trek Adventure is expanding its national race series to include many more great cities (we will release many of these dates on Friday). I assembled a top ten list of US cities and took into account many factors such as public transportation, funky neighborhoods, compactness (neighborhoods are not too spread out from one another) and much more. Take a look-see.
10. Austin, TX (keepin’ it weird since 1839)
9. San Diego (great trolley and awesome weather)
8. East Bay (sorry SF, but the EB has way better transportation)
7. New Orleans (great history and great central downtown)
6. Portland (#6 thanks to TriMet)
5. Chicago (great parks and the Loop)
4. Philly (nice compact city and Rocky)
3. Washington, DC (lots of memorials and statues)
2. Boston (America’s walking city, easy to get around)
1. New York City (the subway, the shear size of the city…)
What city do you think is #1? What city should have made the list? What city should have been left off?
