America's Strangest People 2011
No. 1 New Orleans
Is it any surprise? There’s a good reason that the Crescent City is also the No. 1 city for bars, wild weekends, and people-watching: every day can be its own form of Mardi Gras, from the Frenchmen Street area to the whole French Quarter. The locals aren’t hiding that offbeat nature, either: New Orleans also ranked No. 1 for civic pride.
