Hey, Cleveland, how’s it going?

Did you know we’ve been ranked in the top 20 friendliest cities in the country?

Travel + Leisure put Cleveland in the 14th spot, a place where you can generally count on a smile from strangers and at least a few offers from people to personally help you wth directions if you look a little lost and confused.

The list is mostly dominated by cities in the south – no surprise there – but Cleveland seems to still have a certain kind of hospitality all its own.

“You will rarely find a Clevelander that will not try to go out of [his or her] way to assist you,” said one survey responder to Travel + Leisure.

I guess it’s true what they say – The Land is the best location in the nation.
