Which city is the friendliest?

I spent a day in Memphis last week. AMAZING city, and if you've never been there before, definately try to make it out a soon as possible.

People were extremely friendly, as I expected. After a slab of ribs at the famous Rendevous I was stopped by a woman on the street.

"Hey Scott, do you know you're still wearing a nametag?"

"Yeah...I always wear a nametag! It makes people friendlier."

She gave me a puzzled look, "But...you're in Memphis!"

Southern hospitality: you gotta love it. I, of course told the woman I was from St. Louis and ALWAYS wore a nametag, despite the inherent friendliness of certain cities. But, an interesting point, nonetheless.

This article reports that Sydney, Australia has been voted "The World's Friendliest City."


What's the friendliest city you've ever visited?
