Travelers’ Picks for Park Cities

Travel + Leisure is out with its 2008 America’s Favorite Cities survey, which asked travelers to rank 25 top U.S. cities in 45 categories, ranging from food and shopping to people, culture, nightlife, and more. (Reportedly more than 125,000 opinionated travelers voted.) “Parks and access to the outdoors” is one area the magazine surveys on, and the top 5 cities (through travelers eyes) are: 1) Portland; 2) Honolulu; 3) San Diego; 4) Seattle and 5) Minneapolis/St. Paul. (See the full rankings.)
