Conde Nast Traveler has released its latest list of friendliest – and least friendly – cities in the country, and it doesn’t look good for Connecticut.
Both Hartford and New Haven ended up among the ranks of the top 10 “unfriendliest” cities, with New Haven coming in at No. 5, down from its No. 3 spot on last year’s list.
It seems an improvement at first blush, but it turns out Hartford now ranks third, topped only by Oakland, California and Newark, New Jersey.
Charleston, South Carolina, and Savannah, Georgia lead the list of friendliest locales.
The rankings are compiled from Conde Nast’s annual Readers’ Choice Survey results and are based on the presence (or absence) of tourist attractions and whether guests felt welcome or snubbed during their travels.
