Introduction:Travel and Leisure magazine just released the list of top twenty rudest cities in America, the top five of which are listed below in order of rudest. My commentary on each follows the selection - I think Travel and Leisure magazine is a bit off...

    #1 Rudest City In America: Los Angeles

    From personal experience, I believe that Los Angeles came in first on the list of rudest cities in America based on their traffic patterns. I didn't find the people very rude themselves but, put a Los Angeles native behind the wheel of a car and watch the demon come out! I remember being scared stiff the first time I tried to enter the highway on the way to Disneyland. Ugh. Won't do that again.

  • 02

    New York City

    I think New York City made it toward the top of the list based on sheer number of people sharing a relatively small space. You're sure to get stepped on if you linger on a sidewalk, but I'm not sure you won't get a quick 'Sorry' from the offender.

  • 03

    Philadelphia

    I'm not sure how Philadelphia 'The city of brotherly love' came in at #3 on the list of rudest cities in America but there it is. I personally have never had a problem there but it might be that those darn New Yorkers are bleeding over and taking some of the love.

  • 04

    Miami

    Now, I'm not sure that Miami is all that rude but it sure is filled with silicone! I personally love Miami as it holds the cruise port and is very close to Key West where you'll never find a rude native

  • 05

    Washington, DC

    This one gets my goat as I live 14 miles from Washington DC and was born there and I'm nice as can be! I think that you get what you give - I've never thought of Washington as a rude city at all and, if you happen to wander across me while visiting here, I promise I'll be nice...




Final Thoughts

The #6-#10 spots for Travel and Leisure magazines pick for rudest cities are: Boston, Baltimore, Las Vegas, Orlando and Dallas.

    I truly believe you reap what you sow when you look at how people treat you. I went to Paris and was warned about the French people - they couldn't have been nicer as I went about butchering their language. But, they appreciated that I at least tried.

    There are rude (and nice) people everywhere. Great list!

    I can't agree with New York. I think it's all in the perception. I found them totally amazing, helpful and fun to be around. That's my one day impression.

    I'm a Jersey girl and we can sometimes be rude but I think New Yorkers are worse!

    People are mostly polite here in Indianapolis, but it depends on what part of town you are in. The nicer the neighborhood, the ruder the people - go figure.

    I am happy that Wisconsin isn't on the top 5. H5.

    high five list and I wonder why anyone would need to do such a survey. I am not condemning you since you are the messenger.
