|Asheville: No. 4 on the list.|
"For 'great locally sourced food and friendly people,' savvy travelers head to Asheville, North Carolina, known for its compelling combination of 'free thinkers and Southern hospitality.' A vibrant local art scene, plenty of microbreweries, and 'excellent restaurants' make for a city with 'hidden treasures around every corner.' Visitors insist that above all, it’s the 'conscientious locals' who truly make this 'welcoming' metropolis a 'fun, quirky place to visit.'"
I'm not sure what locally-sourced food and good restaurants have to do with being friendly, but, hey, I didn't do the survey. Asheville is a nice place, though. So is Roanoke.
Newark, N.J., is ranked No. 1 among the "unfriendliest" cities.
