I haven't been to Atlanta, Dallas, or Jacksonville yet. I've been to the other 3 cities.

Louisville is generally outwardly friendly. Washington DC is not. No comment on the others.

Despite its reputation otherwise (mostly by city hating folks) I've always found NYC to have more than enough friendly people to make any visit enjoyable- you just have to bring up your more aggressive personality to keep up with theirs. Also, Atlanta is a pretty friendly city.

I've not really been to Dallas or Houston for any length of time but most Texans I know have big, friendly personalities so I can't imagine that presence not being felt in most cities there.

Would you agree that the Nashville folks are some of the nicest around?

Other: Minneapolis, because all my friends live there and there very nice people, plus its a city where strangers talk to each other on the street and everyone has good manners

NYC is the friendliest (believe it or not).
Nice is another story. That probably goes to Salt Lake City.

Perhaps it's not a statistically-significant sample yet, but how on Earth would anyone suggest that Chicago is friendly? Chicagoans are, to a man, rude beyond belief.

Their grating nasal accent and predilection for Mario moustaches doesn't help.

Bostonians were quite nice and friendly when I was there. I know what their reputation is, but my experience was very positive!
