One of our favorite things about being on vacation is getting to try something new in the culinary world.

That’s why we’ve put together a list of the 15 best foodie friendly cities in the United States. We didn’t rank them, because everybody’s tastes are a little different, but we feel comfortable that any diners can find something to love in each of these places.

This means the food is probably great because why else would you go to an ugly restaurant? My daughter has adopted this philosophy as well and calls me often to describe a great meal at an ugly establishment.
