Default Which cities have the nicest and rudest people of those you've been to (in U.S.)

Without listing every city you've ever been to.

For me, nicest in order:
1. San Antonio
2. Austin
3. Fort Worth
4. Nashville
5. Atlanta (if not for all the daggone yankee transplants, it would rank up there with SAT and Austin.)
6. Oklahoma City
7. Houston
8. Southhaven, MS

For me, rudest, in order:
1. Chicago
2. Columbus, OH
3. Seattle
4. Portland, OR
5. Louisville, KY (ironically, they are really friendly on the road, but not in person)
6. Denver, CO
7. Miami
8. Pittsburgh

I'm surprised to even hear people be worried with people's rudeness. I don't put up with it. Plain and simple.

Hey, I never said that, lol. I think northerners are very nice. Just pretty abrupt and direct.

4) Minneapolis
5) Dallas

Rudest:
