What makes a city the most lovable in the nation? According to Travel + Leisure readers, it could be a mix of food, culture, and some funny accents.

No. 10 Chicago

12 of 22

The City of Big Shoulders ranked highly for living-large qualities like its tall buildings and bottomless passion for sports (or at least its No. 1-rated sports bars). Chicago also won loyalty from travelers for having a wide range of excellent hotels. And when it comes to the great pizza debate—thin crust, Neapolitan, deep dish—if Chicago’s victory for best pizza is any indication, T+L voters prefer the latter.
