Out of more than 400 U.S. cities and towns, Fort Worth is one of the friendliest. This is according to Travel + Leisure readers, who ranked the destinations on 70 different features for this year's America's Favorite Places survey.
Cowtown ranks No. 7 and is in good Lone Star company. San Antonio ranks No. 1, and Houston comes in second. Unsurprisingly, the South ran away with the top 20 in terms of friendly folks. Other common factors for the top scorers include warm weather, walkability, and affordability,
“San Antonio is truly a big city with small town vibes,” says Samantha Rivera, who runs furniture store Nadeau. “Perhaps it's just all of the amazing tacos we get to bond over, but at the end of day it's easy to make new friends in this town.”

Though visitors did dig Big D's bars and barbecue, maybe they just didn't know what to expect from a trip to Dallas. After all, the magazine says, "you won’t find longhorns or oil rigs in this truly modern metropolis."
