America's Best Cities for Nightlife
No. 20 Seattle
The locals here fall in the middle in terms of noisemaking, and their chattering might be due more to all that quality caffeine, rather than actually cutting loose. Even though the Emerald City won third place for its hoppy microbrews, beer got edged out by coffee, which ranked No. 1 with voters. You can use your nervous energy to hike or pedal around the city's lush parks, then stay up late for the city's live music and cocktails in Capitol Hill or Belltown.
