The Top 10 Most Attractive Cities In The U.S.

Travel + Leisure has just released its list of the most attractive cities in America. They aren’t ranked by your usual attractions- buildings, restaurants, nightlife, or cultural icons. They are ranked by the attractiveness of their inhabitants.

To our surprise, New York City didn’t make the top 10. But we are convinced that they never made it to our office here at Elite Daily. Take a look at the Top Ten Most Attractive Cities In America.

10. The Twin Cities — Minneapolis and St. Paul — have active and intelligent residents who love to spend time outdoors, despite the cold weather.

9. Honolulu, Hawaii, has gorgeous beaches, fresh seafood, and a diverse mix of residents who relish the outdoors.

8. Savannah, Georgia, has a rich history (it was a key port during the Revolutionary War), stunning beaches, and warm, hospitable residents.

7. Austin, Texas, is a sprawling college town that's also known as the "live music capitol" of the country. The quirky city, which prides itself on being weird, is home to celebrities like Sandra Bullock and Lance Armstrong.

6. Nashville is known for its thriving country music scene and its hopping bars and clubs. The city also has incredible barbecue food and is home to Vanderbilt University. Country music stars like Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift have homes in Nashville.

5. Los Angeles made the number five spot thanks to all of the attractive celebrities who call the city home. The City of Angels also has good weather, laid-back residents who care about health and wellness, and hot restaurants and nightclubs.

4. Charleston's historic architecture, great restaurants, and quaint shops make it one of the most charming cities in the U.S. The fact that the weather is great year-round means that residents spend lots of time outdoors.

3. San Juan, Puerto Rico, came in first in last year's rankings, but dropped to the #3 spot this year. Travel + Leisure calls it a "magnetic place for mingling with a good-looking crowd." Ricky Martin and Joaquin Phoenix were both born in San Juan.

2. San Diego is known for its surfer-friendly beaches, its great Tex-Mex food, and a surprisingly fantastic theater scene. Several celebrities, including Nick Cannon, Cameron Diaz and Tony Hawk, were born or raised in San Diego.

1. The legendary party and beach culture of Miami helped catapult it to the top of this year's rankings. The city is home to hot celebrities like Dwayne Wade, Gloria Estefan, and Shakira.
