Top 11 Most Beautiful Cities in the US

Chicago, IL

The cubbies, deep-dish pizza, and Grant Park: just three things that put one of our country’s most beautiful cities on the world’s radar. Chicago paints a pretty picture with its skyline and views over shimmering Lake Michigan. The city is chock-full of Art Deco buildings that date back to the Al Capone era in the 20s.

Like the John Hancock Observatory and Water Tower, many are huddled on the prestigious Magnificent Mile. But you can still find breathing space from city life in green havens like Millennium Park, home to the bean-shaped Cloud Gate, or head to the 103rd-floor viewing deck at the Willis Tower to appreciate Chicago’s urban beauty.

If you’re visiting during the summer, check out the festivals this city loves to put on, from Taste of Chicago and Pitchfork Music Fest to the big daddy of them all, Lollapalooza. This windy city hunkers down in the winter unless the Bears are playing football, in which case shirtless guys will brave sub-zero temperatures to cheer on their boys at Soldier Field. No matter what you’re into, Chicago has it all!

  1. Thank you for those lovely cities. I am a native of Chicago and enjoyed your view of
    the city. I now live in South Carolina and enjoy visiting Charleston and Savannah in
    Georgia. I am familiar with most of these cities and your description of them makes
    one wish to visit. Luckily I have a son living in San Diego which gives me a reason to

    1. I’ve seen and lived in both the New York and Las Angeles area and they are concrete jungles and not lovely! You would have to be in a park itself to make sense, but most of those cities by and large are sad and tragic! Wonderful theater and arts culture for both, but Charleston, South Carolina they are not.

  2. At least 2/3 of the cities on your list, I would not go if I had free airfare and accommodations to them.

  3. Have you been to these cities lately? I have been to all of them. The crime in some is out of control. San Francisco used to be the most beautiful, like a European city. Now it’s not even on the list. Everyone knows why. I would agree with San Diego, Charleston and Savannah and Boston. Very sad to see what years of liberal mayors have done to many once great cities, in my humble opinion.

  4. I have been all of ithem, (way more beyond: Phylli, Pitts, Potland OR, Houston, Vegas … ) but where is San Francisco, which shall be put in the first place !
