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. 6 San Diego (tie)

7 of 22

This sunny SoCal city has been a longtime winner in the weather category, but the city offers much more than blue skies. San Diego ranked in the top five for its pretty people, who are also the most physically fit in the U.S. The family-friendly city also made it into the top five for its burgers and ice cream. With dozens of nearby parks, such as Torrey Pines State Reserve, this is a prime destination for urban adventurers. Make the new Hotel La Jolla home base, and use its loaner bikes to explore; gastropub Tiger! Tiger! has drink specials for patrons who arrive on two wheels.
