America’s Most and Least Attractive People

Which cities have the most eye-catching locals? According to Travel + Leisure readers, attractiveness may be next to friendliness, but a few beaches don’t hurt, either.

Most Attractive No. 2 San Diego

2 of 21

This SoCal city wins the silver medal for the second time—more proof of the solar beauty power found in warm locales. San Diegans also ranked at No. 2 for being fit, and you can keep up with them by hiking the trails at the windswept Torrey Pines State Reserve, stand-up paddleboarding in La Jolla Cove, or boogie boarding in Pacific Beach. Perhaps because exercise is best done early, San Diego also ranked well for its fortifying brunches. Reward yourself with pineapple-upside-down pancakes at Snooze in Hillcrest and Carmel Valley, or South of the Border–style chilaquiles at the ocean-view Brockton Villa in La Jolla.
