America's Rudest Cities 2010
No. 20 Anchorage
Can bears be rude? In Alaska’s biggest city—surrounded by mountains, water, and wildlife—talking with other people is clearly overrated. The city ranks No. 9 for its views and No. 6 for peace and quiet. Even the pubs and nightclubs don’t inspire much friendly chitchat, AFC voters say: they rank the city’s bar scene as No. 33 out of 35 and its live music scene in last place.
