Louisville is pretty friendly.

Typically, midwestern states are considered the most polite in terms of first impressions, but southern states are considerd the most warm, friendly and outgoing.

So, I'd also recommend Nashville, Charlotte, Charleston....or if you want a really large city, Atlanta. Or maybe one of the Texan cities.

Actually, all of the Texan cities would work here. Take your pick: Austin, Houston, Dallas, Lubbock, Fort Worth, San Antonio, El Paso, Amarillo, or Corpus Christi. You can't go wrong.

Y'all come back now, ya hear??

If I recall, only 25 cities were on that second poll... so Vegas scored relatively low, if I'm correct.
