These are America's 5 rudest cities

According to readers of Travel + Leisure, Miami is America's rudest city. The readers were asked to rank cities with populations of more than 100,000 based on things like restaurants, museums, how walkable the city is and how friendly the locals are. 

Miami, which came in second last year, snagged the No. 1 spot in part for snobbiness.

It was also recently named the worst U.S. city to live in in by 24/7 Wall St., which looked at crime rates, affordable housing and more when determining its list. 

Phoenix shot up Travel + Leisure's rudest city list to No. 2 this year, and ranking No. 3 was the Big Apple.

New York City was named the rudest city in 2015. 

But New Yorkers aren't necessarily getting nicer. Instead, Travel + Leisure said, "Tourists have come to expect a certain demeanor as part of their authentic New York City experience." It currently ranks sixth out of the top 10 unfriendliest cities in the world

Los Angeles was ranked the fourth rudest in the U.S., and the City of Brotherly Love -- Philadelphia -- rounded out the top five. 

But snobbiness may not be Philadelphia's problem. Thrillist named it America's angriest city back in May.

Salt Lake City, Boston, Dallas, Colorado Springs and Ann Arbor, Michigan, were also named on Travel + Leisure's rudest American cities list. 

As for finding a friendly city to travel to? Travel + Leisure readers suggest San Antonio, Houston or Madison, Wisconsin.
