And be honest.

Every year, Travel + Leisure has been asking readers across the country to rank their hometowns to share the kind of knowledge you just don't have unless you're a local in our America’s Favorite Places survey.

From the absolute best barbecue to the friendliest cities in America, this is the time to brag about what your hometown does best.

Tell us what you love most about your hometown or city (or what you absolutely can’t stand, like a dull nightlife scene or terrible drivers) for the chance to win a $2,500 grand prize, or one of three $500 prizes.

After all, no one knows a city or town better than the people who live there. So pick your hometown (or the place you call home now) and be honest.

Do locals welcome tourists? How’s the coffee? Can visitors come here for a wholesome family vacation? Is your city completely underrated?

Help us shine the spotlight on the people and the places that locals like you love most by casting a vote in this year’s survey. And spread the word to bring some glory to your hometown.
