Lost in Miami? It might be better to buy a map than ask locals for directions. That's because the city tops Travel and Leisure's list of the rudest US cities. Travelers ranked cities based on how pleasant locals seem, and while rudeness can be subjective, Travel and Leisure notes hot weather may make some residents cranky, while in-your-face sports fans may also be off-putting. The top eight:

  1. Miami
  2. Phoenix
  3. New York City
  4. Los Angeles
  5. Philadelphia
  6. Salt Lake City
  7. Boston
  8. Dallas
