No. 3 Nashville

4 of 22

Aside from open-mic nights, an ice cream parlor might be the finest way to mingle with Music City’s twangy locals, who ranked as the friendliest in the nation. East Nashville has the city’s hipsters, plenty of microbrews, and the most cutting edge ice cream: check out Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams—with flavors such as whiskey pecan—and the Pied Piper, which pulls off both a pear sorbet with a Cabernet reduction and the Lady Goo-Goo, a chocolate ice cream blended with marshmallows and chopped, homegrown Goo Goo Clusters.
