No. 11 Providence, RI

12 of 22

Geography has definitely shaped the Rhode Island accent, placing it aesthetically partway between New England Yankee and the New Yawkers to the south. Readers also loved the city for its food (they could perhaps hang a warning sign at the city limits, for anyone trying to diet): Providence scored near the top for burgers, pizza, food trucks, and ice cream.
