(Travel + Leisure) -- Travel + Leisure, Headline News and want to know which U.S. cities are your favorites -- and why!

Chicago was voted best destination for food and dining in last year's America's Favorite Cities survey.

Let the debates begin

When Travel + Leisure announced the results of last year's America's Favorite Cities Survey, debates raged on television, in print and on the Internet: Was Chicago really the best destination for food and dining? Did Philadelphians deserve last place in the attractive citizens category? Are Seattle residents really the most intelligent in the country? How could sunny Los Angeles edge out surly New York as the least friendly city?
