Top 32 Cities in the USA – Part 1


Jason is BACK!

It’s been a while since we’ve had Jason on, so it’s great to have him back today to talk about our favorite cities, towns, and/or hamlets in the good ol’ U S of A.

Jason has a bit of leg up on me for this one, as he spent years touring around the United States as an Event Manager in all kinds of awesome, and hilarious, vehicles.

We discuss the best gelato outside of Italy, the specific charms of a college town, and all manner of foodstuffs and beer in our meanderings around the country.

Here on the EPoP Podcast, we’re only doing Part 1 of the podcast, counting down to our top 8. We’ll be finishing up the list over on the Zero to Travel podcast, so make sure to head on over and check out the rest of the list!

  • I really enjoyed this dual cast! You invited us to send in our own top 16 cities so here are mine:

    16 Amarillo, Tx
    15 Flagstaff, Az
    14 Savannah, Ga
    13 Del Ray Beach, Fl
    12 Portland, Maine
    11 Detroit, Mi
    10 New York, NY
    9 Santa Fe, NM
    8 Seattle/Everett, Wn
    7 Mystic, Ct
    6 San Francisco, Ca
    5 Burlington, Vt
    4 Washington, D.C.
    3 New Orleans, La
    2 Asheville, NC
    1 Boulder, Co

    • @Madeline Wilson – Awesome list! After being in New Orleans again and Asheville since we recorded, I’d agree that both those cities are super high on my list too. I’d really like to check out Santa Fe too.

      Intrigued by Mystic, CT, Burlington, and Amarillo. Why’d they make your list. I’ve never been to any of them, so would love to hear more about them.

  • Great list, and agreed that you need to check out my town of Minneapolis. Given your affinity for beers and burgers, there’s no better place than the home of Surly (and dozens of other breweries that are killing it) and the Jucy Lucy – google it!
