That's hard to base on just one or two visits to a city. There are friendly and unfriendly people everywhere.

NYC is pretty friendly.
Philly is not so. (and I'm from Philly)

I know when I went to New York I actually did think the store owners were very rude (especially since they're trying to sell a person something) but it was years ago when I was there. I've been around the States, I don't find anywhere else particularly unfriendly (or friendly) with the exception of Hawaii. Hawaii is, in my experience from where I've been, the absolute friendliest place going. Everyone there was amazing, perfect strangers would say aloha to us. You could strike up a friendly conversation with anyone there. The bus driver would stay at the stop and tell you exactly how to get where you're going. The place is so friendly, you can actually use your bus transfer as a stopover and they don't mind at all!  * smile *

Would this make more sense as two separate surveys with choices???
Also, I haven't been to all of the states so I have no idea which have the friendliest/least friendly people. I could tell you which states I prefer, but that would be a different answer.

Of only the ones I've been in, I'd say Culpeper, VA is the most friendly and Columbus, OH is the least friendly. Now keep in mind, I'm only speaking of cities or towns I've been to.  * smile *

Atlanta, Georgia is very unfriendly. Since I haven't been in every US city ever, I can't say that is the unfriendliest. But so far, Atlanta is the most unfriendly city I've been in.

I have heard that Eastern cities are much less friendly and that everyone is rush rush. Minneapolis is definitely Minnesota nICE (meaning people say hello and don't want to talk any more. It's isolating). The west coast cities I've found to be friendly in a laid-back way (I'm not including L.A.). BUT, Chicago rocks! It is so multicultural/multilingual. I asked strangers for directions there all the time when I lived there and they were so nice. I felt very comfortable in that town. I also lived near New Orleans for awhile. That town is crazy. The types of people vary widely, but seem mostly friendly. The social politics are very different than in the north, but mainly people are just more open about their predjudices.

I don't know about the friendliest but New Yorkers can be really unfriendly, pushy and generally rude.

My brother went to San Francisco and said the people there were very friendly...and it's unusual for him to say something like that.

Denver Colorado is the best" And some people are just so friendly towards me, and Colorado Springs tops the list

Some small Towns in the U.S.A. are least friendly towards outsiders and they can be mean and ugly

Perhaps some people in the Bay Area are friendly and there are people in Big Cities like this, and here in Colorado it is small Towns like Kremmling where some people do not keep to themselves and are very cruel and mean

I have never lived anywhere with particularly unpleasant people, but I think that very large cities could be the worse because they can be so impersonal. Only London is really that big in the UK, but there are lots more big cities in the US. I've never had problems living in smaller places, but that said I do find my current city very small-minded and think that it could cause a lot of problems for anyone who stood out in any way.

This sounds very much like this Town of Kremmling where half the population can be so friendly and the other half so narrow minded if you stand out among the crowd and they mind other peoples business and not their own

Least friendly - anywhere in California, New York
Phoney friendly - anywhere in the South.

I don' know since I haven't traveled to all U.S. states but I have found from my personal experience that people in the south are more likely to wave at their neighbor than people up north or out west.

This is a duplicate survey of the one I just answered, just narrowing it down a bit.

I don't like the "state" it put me in, but I've met the best and worst in Seattle, Washington, USA.

Washington, DC area is the least friendliest.
Orlando, FL or any other city in Florida is the friendliest....
but I'm just speaking on the cities I've been to.

I think Springfield, MO, people are very friendly. Phoenix, AZ, people have been friendly toward me so far, that is until I get behind the wheel. After that, people go a little crazy. I definitely think St. Louis has left a sour taste of unfriendliness in my mouth, mostly because a mean airport people.
