Next to pro sports teams and maybe famous citizens not named Pauly Shore, nothing gets people talking city pride like a “best-of” Internet list. “Most Livable City,” or “Sexiest City,” or “Best Small Town to Start a Knitting Blog,” you get the idea.
But what about a list that ranks the cities at the TOP OF MOST LISTS?!?! Pretty meta, right? Well, that’s exactly we’ve compiled. After culling 44 different best-of lists from all over the world wide web, we gave cities points based on where there fell in the top 10. Then we tallied the results and — out of a total of 50 locales — determined the 16 towns that are pretty much the best at FRICKIN’ EVERYTHING!
