New Orleans Voted Number 10 of World’s Best Cities

Yep, well, New Orleans has done it again as being one of the world’s best by Travel + Leisure. Why have we garnered such a distiction? Well, it’s the Running of the Bulls San Fermin fest, that’s a heck of a lot more fun than the one in Spain. And a lot safer too. With a lot more girls. And more booze. And more people making fools of themselves. I think.

The Crescent City Connection frames the skyline of New Orleans, one of the top 10 cities in the world.

It’s the quirky charm, they say, and the Satchmo Summer Fest. But, heck, it’s more than that. It’s the people and the food and the strange, dreamlike atmosphere, the down-home warmth of the place.

San Francisco, New York, Miami, ha, didn’t even make the cut.

Here’s an excerpt from SF Gate, a site in San Francisco:

In fact, San Francisco only placed fourth among all U.S. and Canadian cities in the travel publisher’s annual survey, with three cities from the South ahead of it on the domestic list,  in ascending order: Savannah, Ga., New Orleans, and Charleston, S.C., which repeated its 2013 top rating  on the U.S./Canada list. Charleston’s high ratings this year also earned it No. 2 on the “world’s best cities” list—up from No. 7 on the 2013 international rankings —with Kyoto at No. 1 and New Orleans  at No. 10.  

Kyoto, number 1? Hm, well, I ain’t never been there so I can’t say anything about that. And for Charleston to be voted number 2? Really. These results must be oddly skewed some way.

Anyway, there ya go. New Orleans still considered one of the top 10 best in the world. Well, we already knew that, didn’t we. Don’t need any magazine to tell us dat, cher.
