No. 20 Philadelphia

21 of 22

How off-kilter is Philly’s Callowhill section? Reportedly, even filmmaker David Lynch was weirded out when he lived here (it also inspired his surrealist Eraserhead). You can explore its heart at the Philadelphia Mausoleum of Contemporary Art—a gallery and performance space located in a former mausoleum and tombstone showroom—or the Trestle Inn, located under the Reading Railroad tracks, which offers ’60s-era cocktails and go-go dancers. Philly also ranked at the top for its intense sport fans.
