No. 20 Anchorage

2 of 22

Can bears be rude? In Alaska’s biggest city—surrounded by
mountains, water, and wildlife—talking with other people is clearly overrated.
The city ranks No. 9 for its views and No. 6 for peace
and quiet
. Even the pubs and nightclubs don’t inspire much friendly
chitchat, AFC voters say: they rank the city’s bar
scene
as No. 33 out of 35 and its live
music
scene in last place.
