A quote attributed to British journalist and novelist Maurice Baring states that “Whoever one is, and wherever one is, one is always in the wrong if one is rude. ”

Do people tend to mind their manners where you live? As part of its 54-category”America’s Favorite Cities” survey of 35 different U.S. municipalities, the Travel+Leisure website rates among other things hotels, restaurants, the social scene, and the overall personality of local residents.

Based on the latter category, here is the list of America’s least friendly cities, most of which–no surprise–are on the east coast:

  1. Los Angeles
  2. New York City
  3. Philadelphia
  4. Miami
  5. Washington, D.C.
  6. Boston
  7. Baltimore
  8. Las Vegas
  9. Orlando
  10. Dallas/Ft. Worth

Do you think that Los Angeles, with its laid-back reputation, deserve the top spot as most unfriendly? In general, how does this list stack up with your own travel experiences or where you live?
