In your honest opinion and based on your own experiences, which big city here in the United States would you say has the most friendly people? I would have to say that Nashville people and Minneapolis people are the most friendly.

I've met friendly and rude people everywhere, so I can't say.

I would say people in the midwest are a little more friendly and corteous.

Friendly cities would be Minneapolis, St. Louis, Milwaukee, Indianopolis, and Pittsburgh. This is certainly not a scientifically based theory and Im sure it will be contested by others----I just feel that the midwest has a friendly culture and experience.

What do you consider big? What do you consider 'friendly'? If you consider Austin big and friendly as being open and warm, then I vote Austin, TX. Love it here, used to live in Seattle, for the most part you couldn't find a more different social culture. The allergies are killing me though.

Too bad they have all that ugly burnt orange there drowning out all the friendly smiles/greetings.

My experiences:

Houston (although I have read some criticism of its people here on C-D, so maybe it's changing)
Chicago, believe it or not--of course, just in customer service and as a guest
Outer Greater Los Angeles (away from L.A. County)--again, just in customer service and as a guest.
Austin
Fort Worth

Somebody mentioned Milwaukee. Strangely, many I've met from Milwaukee have been surly and VERY cold. Maybe they have an inferiority complex to nearby Chicago. Wisconsinites I've met from elsewhere in the state have been fine, however.

Nashville is friendly, but it's not a big city.
