Travel + Leisure came out with their America's Favorite City 2008 guide with lists shows how visitors and residents voted. For visitors (and well, residents), we came in last for--no big surprises here--traffic. And well, we also hit the bottom of the list for public transportation and pedestrian friendliness. And maybe we can blame these woes on our friendliness and intelligence, both of which ranked last too. All of this adds up to a trip to our fair city being one of the least relaxing ones (however, a wild weekend was our highest rating).

On the good side, visitors think we're attractive, have style and carry some of the best luxury boutiques around.
