My mom and I live four hours away from each other, but right in the middle is the incredible town of Asheville, North Carolina.  A few days ago, we spontaneously made plans to meet up in the city for lunch.




Henry and I were excited to see Grandma, and Grandma was excited to see us!  The weeks pass by far too quickly. 


I interrupt this post to briefly address HOW FREAKING ADORABLE Henry looks in winter gear.  Squeeeeeal.

It was pretty cold and dreary when we arrived.  We did some window-shopping (Asheville has so many cool shops), but the weather eventually got the best of us.


We decided to go to Tupelo Honey.  I don’t have I’ve ever actually eaten at this popular Asheville restaurant because the lines are always out the door.  But I guess 2:00 PM on a Thursday is the time to arrive – we didn’t have to wait at all.


I had the veggie plate.  Goat cheese grits (yum), tofu, Brussel sprouts and beet salad.


The Brussel sprouts were the best part (file that under things I never thought I’d say).


I was super impressed with the Tupelo Honey kids’ menu.  I know that kids can be picky eaters, but I hate how limited (and unhealthy) most kids’ menus are (that being said, Henry just normally eats adult sides at restaurants).  But check this out – I would eat off this kiddo menu!  It was awesome.


When we left the restaurant, I quickly checked my email and realized that I had an invite to the grand opening of the new Tupelo Honey Charlotte location!  I had this freaky-Twilight-zone moment where I felt like Google somehow knew I was in the restaurant in Asheville but lived in Charlotte and would want to attend the opening, but I’m pretty sure it was just a coincidence. Smile I am SO excited to see that this restaurant is coming to my city!


We spent the afternoon at an arcade. There were bounce houses, so Henry was satisfied.


He hasn’t figured out that you have to crawl through tunnels yet.  He can barely squeak by, but I swear – one more month and he’ll be forced to do hands and knees.

Shortie like his momma.

    My favorite city ever is Vienna! Awesome, amazing, add it all.

  • Lindsay November 22, 2013, 12:51 pm

    I totally need to win these! I was just telling my mom about them and she asked me to put some in her stocking for Christmas!

    So far my favorite city I’ve visited is Tokyo.

  • Kate November 22, 2013, 12:54 pm

    Such a tough decision. I’m going to have to go with Hilton Head, SC. Not really a city at hall, but it’s beautiful, warm, and the people are so amazingly nice!

  • Megan November 22, 2013, 12:55 pm

    I love visiting New York City. the atmosphere is awesome!

  • Natalie November 22, 2013, 12:56 pm

    My favorite city ever is San Diego, CA! I love the diversity, sites, restaurants, and being along the beautiful coast!

  • Shanna November 22, 2013, 12:56 pm

    My favorite city is a tie between London and Rome….both gorgeous, historical cities!

  • Sherilyn November 22, 2013, 12:58 pm

    I love Chicago. It’s the only city (other than Boston) that I’ve ever felt I could live in.

  • Allyson November 22, 2013, 12:59 pm

    Portland! Love the food, beer, and easy access to many recreational activities!

  • Katie November 22, 2013, 12:59 pm

    Woah Baby!! I love Duluth Minnesota. Especially on a week day in the summer, the college kids aren’t around, the tourists aren’t around too much, and you can just enjoy the views and the food with no wait times! Also, that kids menu looks awesome! You are lucky!

  • Daniela S. November 22, 2013, 12:59 pm

    My favourite city is Berlin. I used to live in Berlin as a kid and have great memories of eating chocolates and pastries there. Wish I could go back to visit and maybe run the Berlin marathon some day.

  • Glenneth November 22, 2013, 1:00 pm

    favorite city ever – edinburgh, scotland. so much history to see, shopping to do, yummy places to eat.

  • Lauren S November 22, 2013, 1:01 pm

    I went to Chicago this summer to visit family and I fell in love with it, which says a lot because I live close to and have always wanted to live in NYC.

  • Keri November 22, 2013, 1:01 pm

    My favorite city is Munich! So full of culture and history, and lots of yummy food too!

  • Jennifer November 22, 2013, 1:01 pm

    Florence, Italy!

  • Kate November 22, 2013, 1:02 pm

    Favorite city ever- NYC, without question! That’s why I moved here, and that’s why I still love it after 10 years! So much to see and do.

  • Jennifer November 22, 2013, 1:02 pm

    Rome! It changed pizza for me, forever.

  • Britton November 22, 2013, 1:03 pm

    I need a pair of lock laces for my upcoming half ironman training!!!!MY favorite city would be Charleston, SC!

  • Annie November 22, 2013, 1:04 pm

    San Francisco! So much to do, see, and eat. I went over the summer and had an eclair from tartine–heaven!!!!

  • Ashley November 22, 2013, 1:06 pm

    I must say that my favorite city ever is Austin, TX. I lived there for 8 years (during middle- and high-school) and never really appreciated it. When I turned 18 I could NOT WAIT to get out of there. Now I’m 30 and I’ve been trying to find a job there so I can return for the past 5 years! Ha! Funny how life works – first I just wanted to get out and now I long to go back!!!

  • Kaila @healthyhelperblog! November 22, 2013, 1:09 pm

    I LOVE TUPELO HONEY!! When I took a random trip to Ashville last year we ate there and it was fantastic! So fresh and delicious!!

  • Heatherjg November 22, 2013, 1:09 pm

    We went to Myrtle Beach last year to visit my brother and I loved it out there. But I really do love Honlulu also.

  • Shannon November 22, 2013, 1:10 pm

    Dresden, Germany!

  • Alexandra November 22, 2013, 1:10 pm

    My favourite city ever is Vancouver! Gorgeous mountains, active life style and great food

  • Sarah November 22, 2013, 1:10 pm

    Last spring I did a month-long tour of Europe. I’d have to say Barcelona or Venice were my favorites. Beautiful weather, food, and architecture!

  • Katie D November 22, 2013, 1:11 pm

    My favorite city IS Asheville, NC! So many fun and unique things to do and explore there..not to mention the food!!

  • jenn November 22, 2013, 1:12 pm

    Estes Park, Colorado hands down! We got engaged there and visit every year around our anniversary – so beautiful!

  • Lauren November 22, 2013, 1:12 pm

    I have to agree that London is the best. As a Floridian, the cool, rainy weather there appeals to me (in addition to all of the awesome stuff to do, of course). But I’d probably get homesick for sunshine if I ever spent too much time there.

  • Tiffany J November 22, 2013, 1:13 pm

    I love my hometown…DETROIT!

  • Chelsea November 22, 2013, 1:13 pm

    I really enjoyed Salamanca, Spain when I visited years ago – such a cool city!

  • Stephanie November 22, 2013, 1:14 pm

    My favorite city is actually a tow, Nacogdoches, TX…which is the oldest town in Texas. That is where I went to college! I hope to retire there when I grow old.

  • Irene November 22, 2013, 1:15 pm

    I love Sedona Arizona.The red rock was amazing to see and such a calming peaceful atmosphere.

  • Krista November 22, 2013, 1:15 pm

    I live in NYC and love the hustle and bustle, but have visited Dublin several times and love it more every time. The people are friendly, it’s easy to walk almost anywhere and they have a terrific park right in the center of all the action. By far my favorite city (after my home city, of course!)

  • Michelle @ A Healthy Mrs November 22, 2013, 1:16 pm

    My favorite city would have to be NYC — I can’t get enough of it! It never gets old & there’s always something new to see!

    Happy Friday!

  • Samantha November 22, 2013, 1:17 pm

    My favorite city is Bologna Italy. I spent a year there, and it has the best food and architecture you can imagine. It is truly lovely, with lots of green space! I would love to live there again!

  • Julie November 22, 2013, 1:18 pm

    San Fran! Best vacation ever!

  • Jenn W November 22, 2013, 1:19 pm

    My favorite city is Barcelona, Spain. So much history!

  • Kelly November 22, 2013, 1:21 pm

    My favorite US city is probably Nashville, but just recently I went to Ireland and LOVED all the small towns there.

  • Laura November 22, 2013, 1:21 pm

    We just went to Asheville a few weeks ago and we ate at the same place and I wrote about it on my blog! How funny! (

    We live in the Raleigh-Durham area and I can honestly say it’s my favorite city right now. I don’t have a stand out place I’ve visited that I love and I’m really happy with where we live now!

  • Patricia Nash November 22, 2013, 1:22 pm

    I’d say that my favorite city is Paris. It’s snobby, false, and full of toursits – but there’s just enough grit to make it worth it. I LOVE that city. Luckily, I get to see it plenty often!!

  • Kathleen November 22, 2013, 1:23 pm

    Another Asheville fan here, used to call it home. Now I’m in Chicago, another fabulous city, glad to see it getting some love from other commenters. I’ve lived some beautiful places and visited many others, but I have to say that Paris, any season, any weather, any time of day, is the absolute tops for me.

  • Jen November 22, 2013, 1:23 pm

    I think one of my favorite cities would be Kihei HI or Munich Germany! Very different places but I love them both

  • katie November 22, 2013, 1:25 pm


  • Kelsey November 22, 2013, 1:26 pm

    I don’t think I have visited enough cities to have a favorite city EVER, but I love visiting Washington D.C. There is always something to do and I love the history of the city and visiting museums!

  • Katie O November 22, 2013, 1:26 pm

    I love London, Seattle, San Francisco and D.C., but my favorite city had to be the one I loved in for 2 years: Boston! I love its walk-ability, public transit, pubs, parks, and Newberry street!

  • Michelle November 22, 2013, 1:26 pm

    I <3 San Francisco!

  • Elizabeth @ Positive Change November 22, 2013, 1:31 pm

    I have never been out of the country (except for Canada when I was younger) I’m sure I would have chosen an European city! Anyway, I would have to say Savannah is my favorite city. The romantic feel of Savannah is almost breathtaking!

  • Nancy November 22, 2013, 1:32 pm

    My fav city is Victoria, B.C. Great place for walking, relaxing and they have a pretty flat marathon course😀

  • Clizia November 22, 2013, 1:33 pm

    St David’s! Smallest city in the UK 😀 (it has a cathedral so it counts as a city)

  • Emilka November 22, 2013, 1:33 pm

    So far Chicago is my favorite city. My inlaws live there so we go several times a year and I love exploring new things each time. I am a Washingtonian so my only complaint is that the museums aren’t free like the Smithsonian.

  • Hannah Hawley November 22, 2013, 1:35 pm

    Favorite city would have to be London!

  • Sarah November 22, 2013, 1:35 pm

    Fave city has to be Kingston, Ontario, Canada!. It’s a city but feels like a small town. It has all the “big name” shops but also has small local vendors. They have some amazing local restaurants! (drooling thinking about the food right now) The downtown area is pedestrian friendly and scenic and it’s just an overall wonderful place to go 🙂

  • jillian November 22, 2013, 1:35 pm

    Cape Town! and I was interested in those laces, so i’m excited about the giveaway!

  • Taylor November 22, 2013, 1:36 pm

    Favorite City ever would have to be NYC at Christmas time (can you specify the time of year?!)

  • Karen November 22, 2013, 1:38 pm

    Dallas TX … food & people are awesome

  • Andrea B. November 22, 2013, 1:41 pm

    Hands down, Laie, HI. Hawaii is amazing!

  • Haley November 22, 2013, 1:44 pm

    I also love London…. Such a busy place with so much to do!

  • Jackie November 22, 2013, 1:45 pm

    My favorite city I visited was Rome. Great people, great food, and so much to do!

  • Kristina November 22, 2013, 1:45 pm

    Savannah is my favorite city. My husband (then boyfriend) and I spent a romantic evening exploring the city and then he proposed. So yeah- favorite citer EVER!

  • Laura November 22, 2013, 1:46 pm

    My overall favorite city is Paris but my favorite city state-side is Portland, OR.

  • Michelle November 22, 2013, 1:47 pm

    Im a Pensacola girl! Beautiful beaches, just big enough to attract great concerts and shows, and small enough to be a great southern hometown.

  • Suzy November 22, 2013, 1:51 pm

    I’m SO excited to hear Tupelo Honey is coming to Charlotte! Now if only we can get Laughing Seed down here too!

    My fav city? Right now, I have to say Asheville, but Phoenix is very close too. Both have awesome food, beer and love and support for their local artists: )

  • Elizabeth November 22, 2013, 1:51 pm

    My favorite city is Istanbul! Would go back in a heartbeat.

  • Salina November 22, 2013, 1:51 pm

    Chicago…great food, great people, love running the lake front and who can forget great shopping!!!

  • Katie November 22, 2013, 1:55 pm

    Heidelberg, Germany! I feel in love when I went with my family after high school graduation and went back for a year to study abroad. It’s been 10 years and I still think about it almost everyday! It’s true what they say-you’ll lose your heart in Heidelberg!

  • Tracey November 22, 2013, 1:58 pm

    Great giveaway! My favorite city (umm, kinda… More like island!) is Capri in Italy! Absolutely gorgeous!

  • Elizabeth November 22, 2013, 2:00 pm

    My favorite city is Toronto! The people are great, the food is amazing, and the shopping is superior!

  • Tiffany S November 22, 2013, 2:01 pm

    My favorite city is the one I live in: Baltimore, MD! It gets a bad rep, but it’s such a young, fun and perfectly-sized city! Although due to weather alone, there’s a soft spot in my heart for San Diego…

  • Taya November 22, 2013, 2:01 pm

    My favorite is Munich, Germany. I have family there, so my stays usually last a month. I fall in love with the city every time- its unique energy, old-world-meets-new world feel, great beer…I love it all! Every time I return, I feel so at home.

  • Cate November 22, 2013, 2:03 pm

    It’s tough to pick just one, but I am in love with Madrid.

  • Brandi H November 22, 2013, 2:05 pm

    Charlotte! It’s my hometown; I love it here. 🙂

  • Alexandra November 22, 2013, 2:05 pm

    London is up there as well as Barcelona (I lived there for 2 years) and Istanbul, but Sevilla has my heart 🙂

  • Natalie November 22, 2013, 2:06 pm

    My favorite city EVER? Greenville, South Carolina is pretty awesome (I travel there a good bit for work). I LOVE Apalachicola, Florida (close to where I live). Internationally…. perhaps Paris or Florence. It’s hard to pick just one! But I’d LOVE a pair of these lock laces. I stopped twice on my run this morning to re-tie my shoes, and I have a foot injury (broke some bones on my honeymoon – funny story) so sometimes getting my shoe laces just right takes a couple tries. All that to say… pick me! Pick me!

    Crossing my fingers,

  • LizW November 22, 2013, 2:07 pm

    Favorite city is Portland, Or. LOVE it! So much beauty and fun and stuff to do 🙂

  • Bri November 22, 2013, 2:08 pm

    My favorite city is Petoskey, Michigan. Located off Little Traverse Bay in the northern part of the mitten state, it’s where my husband and I tied the know, and a place I visited multiple times as a child growing up. Stunning summer sunsets and awesome snowy winters – perfection 🙂

  • Jen G. November 22, 2013, 2:09 pm

    Paris is probably my favorite, but Asheville’s my favorite in the states. It’s close enough to me for a weekend getaway. Have you been to the Chocolate Fetish? I’m currently debating on ordering chocolates for myself for the Christmas holidays….

  • Regina November 22, 2013, 2:10 pm

    We love Asheville but my favorite city was Newport, RI. We went this past fall on a spur of the moment road trip (pregnant w/ a toddler in tow–it was insane) but it was GORGEOUS. So peaceful, friendly and downright beautiful.

  • Breanne November 22, 2013, 2:10 pm

    My favorite city… probably San Diego. It seems like cheating since I live here, but I moved here for college several years ago and never, ever wanted to leave. It became “home” instantly – it was the place I was homesick for (instead of my parents’ home/city). There is SO much to do here too.

  • Charline November 22, 2013, 2:10 pm

    My favorite city is Vancouver. easy to get a round, lots to do, and love being near the water!

  • Jenn November 22, 2013, 2:11 pm

    Newport ,Rhode Island. The most amazing City by the Sea:-)

  • ErikaMC November 22, 2013, 2:12 pm

    Charlottesville. I’ve never been but it sounds/looks amazing! As does New York, Denver, Portland, etc…. I need to get out and travel more!

  • Rebecca November 22, 2013, 2:13 pm

    I’m going with Venice! I can’t wait to go back!

  • Jen W. November 22, 2013, 2:14 pm

    My favorite city is Holland Michigan. It’s a small quiet town full of friendly people and tulips if you visit during the season. Absolutely breathtaking!

  • Stephanie November 22, 2013, 2:15 pm

    Jinan, South Korean because that’s where my mom is from and where my aunt and cousins still live!

  • mary @ minutes per mile November 22, 2013, 2:15 pm

    wow, what a kids’ menu! if (when!) i have a little one, i’m taking him/her there 🙂

  • Tori November 22, 2013, 2:15 pm

    Love St. Augustine–live just far enough away that it is a special trip, and close enough that there are tons of awesome memories there.

  • Kel November 22, 2013, 2:17 pm

    I love Asheville too – I will choose that city!

  • stacey November 22, 2013, 2:17 pm

    Las Vegas is hands down my favorite.

  • Ashley November 22, 2013, 2:18 pm

    Favorite city ever is tough (especially since I have so many more left to visit!) but I think for now I’ll go with Santa Barbara- I just love the vibe.

  • Katie Meier November 22, 2013, 2:21 pm

    My favorite “city” ever is Stone Harbor, NJ (ok, it’s not really a city…). Spent summer vacations there as a kid and have so many great memories!

  • Elizabeth November 22, 2013, 2:21 pm

    Chicago is definitely one of my favorite cities.

  • Amy November 22, 2013, 2:22 pm

    Nice France, european vacation spot with a pebble beach.

  • Shannon November 22, 2013, 2:28 pm

    I would have to say other than Boston (where I live) my favorite would be St. Augustine in Florida. I just loved everything about there when I went. The shops, the history, the people. I could see myself there in the future.

  • Megan November 22, 2013, 2:29 pm

    I love DC! So historic and plenty of running trails 🙂

  • Katie @ Talk Less, Say More November 22, 2013, 2:29 pm

    My favorite city is Boston. Ever since living there during college I have wanted to return and have this huge pull to live in that city again. I still hope that will happen someday.

  • Dana November 22, 2013, 2:35 pm

    This is a hard choice, but I currently live in Boston and I think it actually might be my favorite (so far anyway). It’s always so nice to come home after a trip and see the Boston skyline.

  • Jen November 22, 2013, 2:37 pm

    Love Venice and NYC

  • mary November 22, 2013, 2:38 pm

    Telluride, Colorado. Fresh air, gorgeous scenery, mountains. I LOVED it there!

  • Joy November 22, 2013, 2:38 pm

    My favorite city is Washington D.C. I love how many runners are always running around and I love how all of the museums are free!

  • Tory November 22, 2013, 2:40 pm


  • Jamie November 22, 2013, 2:41 pm

    My favorite city is Cincinnati!

    I love Boston (where I live now), but I also love London! I hope to get back there soon!

  • Emilie November 22, 2013, 2:47 pm

    My favourite city (so far) is Vancouver!!

  • melanie November 22, 2013, 2:49 pm

    my favorite city is also london, I loved living abroad there a few years ago and taking long walks around the city.

  • Bonnie November 22, 2013, 2:50 pm

    Definitely Antigua, Guatemala!

  • Trisha November 22, 2013, 2:51 pm

    Aside from my home town of New York City, my favorite city is London too! I studied abroad there when I was a junior in college. Traveling around with my best friends is a time I’ll always remember very, very fondly!!

  • Becki Santiago November 22, 2013, 2:51 pm

    My favorite city is Waikoloa, HI. I was born and raised there and it has amazing views of the ocean and the mountains.

  • Emily November 22, 2013, 2:54 pm

    Sydney! I visited during the 2000 Olympic Games and couldn’t believe how beautiful the city was, and how friendly the people were. I can’t wait to go back!

  • Barbie November 22, 2013, 2:55 pm

    I live in NC and love Asheville. I think my favorite city that I have visited would have to be Portland!

  • Megan November 22, 2013, 2:58 pm

    Favorite city ever…Cincinnati. Because its HOME.

  • Anna November 22, 2013, 2:59 pm

    My favorite city is Charlottesville, VA. Great food scene, beautiful mountains, and a very cool history!!

  • Laura November 22, 2013, 3:03 pm

    My heart belongs to Stockholm, Sweden.

  • Kayla November 22, 2013, 3:06 pm

    Forks Washington!! Besides the fact that is where the Twilight books and film were incredible views of the ocean and its very own rainforest

  • Melissa November 22, 2013, 3:10 pm

    Yay! NYC is my favorite city ever. I am from Australia but have lived in NYC for 5 years. It’s always changing and it takes my breath away every day. I love everything about it! 🙂

  • Marissa @ Barefoot Colorado November 22, 2013, 3:15 pm

    My favorite city is D.C! Love the history!

  • Susanne November 22, 2013, 3:16 pm

    My favorite city is Williamsburg, VA! It is where I went to college (go Tribe!), met my husband, & got married! So many memories in the beautiful, historic city!

  • Terri November 22, 2013, 3:17 pm

    Portland Oregon is my favorite because it’s so scenic, has a huge farmers market, there’s lots of things to do. It also has alot of the best mom & pop restaurants with fantastic food.

  • Kathleen November 22, 2013, 3:18 pm

    My favorite city is Galway, Ireland. It’s small and beautiful. And everyone is so friendly!

  • Kristen November 22, 2013, 3:20 pm

    This sounds a little silly since I live there, but I have to say Seattle. I admit I haven’t traveled as much as I’d like, but I’ve been to some major cities (New York, Chicago,…) and nothing compares in my eyes.

  • Abby November 22, 2013, 3:23 pm

    Madison WI. It’s home for me but it’s an amazing city. Have moved away and was
    Fortunate to return! Great place to raise a family!

  • Amanda November 22, 2013, 3:23 pm

    Man this is hard, but I have to go with Phoenix, AZ. My mom lives out there now and I LOVE to visit! 🙂

  • Kathy K November 22, 2013, 3:23 pm

    My favorite city ever is Paris, France. I love the food, the architecture and the museums.

  • Lauren @ Peaks and Passports November 22, 2013, 3:24 pm

    My favorite city is Washington, D.C. where I lived for a year after college. It doesn’t hurt that I have wonderful friends and memories there, but I also think it as the perfect blend of culture, outdoor beauty and excellent restaurants. If you’re ever bored in DC, it’s definitely your own fault!

  • Janelle November 22, 2013, 3:25 pm

    My favorite city is San Francisco. Now I just need to get my hubby to go with me…

  • Carrie November 22, 2013, 3:25 pm

    My favorite will always be Rome.

  • Erica November 22, 2013, 3:26 pm

    I don’t think I’ve been to enough cities to really pick my favorite one, but for now I’ll say Savannah, GA. I love that it has all the big city busyness, but also has a lot of small town charm. It’s a beautiful city. Now I really want to check out Asheville and that restaurant. 😉

  • Esther November 22, 2013, 3:28 pm

    New York has to be it. There is some so much variety in cuisine and food – I love being able to eat my way through all of the neighborhoods!

  • Amanda November 22, 2013, 3:36 pm

    Austin, TX! Awesome people and city. When I graduated I picked where I most wanted to live and hoped the job would follow. I’m so glad it all worked out.

  • Arlene @ Adventures in Weight Loss November 22, 2013, 3:41 pm

    It’s hard to pick just one, but I guess I’d pick Sedona, Arizona. So beautiful, and right in my back yard!

  • ChristineB November 22, 2013, 3:44 pm

    As the mom of 3 I agree that kids menus often leave much to be desired. There’s a restaurant we go to occasionally that has salmon filet on the kids menu. My picky middle son LOVES salmon, and loves that there’s no sauce on the filet, so he always orders it.

    As for my favourite city – I have to agree with you. Definitely London. I love the sense of history (in my city a 100 year old building is old) and never has a city that I was just visiting felt so much like home. I would love to live there someday.

  • Melissa November 22, 2013, 3:53 pm

    My favorite city is New York City! Classic and fun!

  • Rebecca @ Strength and Sunshine November 22, 2013, 3:55 pm

    My favorite city is DC! I love how clean and beautiful it is and full of fitness and foodie friends. Not to mention it is the political epicenter oft he world!

  • austin November 22, 2013, 3:58 pm

    beaver creek, colorado. My family has vacationed there for a long time and it is so beautiful (especially in the summer).

  • Carolyn November 22, 2013, 4:04 pm

    I love Madrid– the food, the sights, the culture, amazing!

  • Liz November 22, 2013, 4:10 pm

    Great minds! My favorite American city is definitely Asheville, but my favorite non-American city is London. That’s so cool that we have that in common! I have a feeling I would also really like Portland, but I haven’t been yet. Chattanooga, Tennessee is also high on the list with Washington DC.

  • Jenn November 22, 2013, 4:31 pm

    My favorite city right now would have to be Nashville! (But, I’ve never been to Europe:)

  • Elisabeth November 22, 2013, 4:34 pm

    My favorite city’s Washington DC! I’ve visited there 5 or 6 times & hope to go back again this coming year 🙂

  • Meg November 22, 2013, 4:35 pm

    My favorite cities are Arequipa, Peru for its gorgeous scenery (mountains, palm trees and colonial architecture) and Rome, Italy for its history and food!

  • Marie November 22, 2013, 4:44 pm

    My favorite city is Beaver Dam, WI because that is where my family lives.

  • Mina November 22, 2013, 4:46 pm

    My favorite city is San Francisco, followed closely by NYC. I was just looking at Lock Laces the other day! They look awesome and I was wondering if they had them for kids. It would make getting out the door with my 10 year old so much easier 🙂

  • Jennifer November 22, 2013, 4:53 pm

    I would have to say Knoxville, TN! It has everything a city needs… some fabulous restaurants, good music, good beer, etc… but it’s close enough to the Great Smoky Mountains for day hikes or backpacking trips.

  • Laura T. November 22, 2013, 4:55 pm

    i love seattle!

  • Katie November 22, 2013, 4:55 pm

    My favorite city is Portland, Maine (in the summer!) – it is so beautiful with such great food, too.

  • Caroline @ After Dinner Dance November 22, 2013, 5:00 pm

    My favorite city is Kennebunkport, Maine! It’s a quaint little coastal town in Maine and it’s my happy place! I’ve been wanting to try those shoelaces out for a while now!

  • Runner Girl Eats November 22, 2013, 5:04 pm

    My favorite city is New Orleans. I love the food and energy of the whole city!

  • Mai November 22, 2013, 5:11 pm

    Florence, Italy!

  • Coco November 22, 2013, 5:16 pm

    My favorite city is Paris, but there are so many places I’ve never been that I really want to go to!

  • Christin November 22, 2013, 5:16 pm

    Venice. By far. If I could relive any vacation it would be the beautiful city of Venice with the birds and water and all things perfect (and by that I mean food- lots of noodles! Oh yeah!).

  • Melanie November 22, 2013, 5:24 pm

    Tough question!! It’s hard to beat New York City.. especially during the holidays!

  • Kate November 22, 2013, 5:30 pm

    Boston!!!! I love everything about it!

  • Melissa November 22, 2013, 5:31 pm

    Of all the places I have visited, I love coming home to my city… The city of Champions! Pittsburgh is my favorite!

  • Carolyn November 22, 2013, 5:31 pm

    Los Angeles – where the sun is always shining and it is the perfect temperature!

  • Beaty November 22, 2013, 5:35 pm

    Hard to pick just one favorite….For now I will say Colorado Springs, CO. So close to amazing mountains and endless trails through natural open space. Perfect city for anyone who loves the outdoors.

  • Daniela C November 22, 2013, 6:00 pm

    San Francisco for me !

  • Jess November 22, 2013, 6:09 pm

    San Francisco is my favorite, favorite city. I love how each neighborhood has a distinct feeling to it. Where else would an entire city come together to cheer on Bat Kid?

  • Erin November 22, 2013, 6:14 pm

    My favorite city EVER is Madison, Wisconsin! It sits on two gorgeous lakes, has amazing walkability and bike lanes trails/lanes, many many awesome bars and restaurants, and the badgers!

  • Trisha November 22, 2013, 6:25 pm

    I love Detroit!

  • Jillian November 22, 2013, 6:33 pm

    My favorite city is Providence, and lucky for me I live here 🙂

  • Sara November 22, 2013, 6:40 pm

    Seattle is my favorite!

  • Sarah November 22, 2013, 7:04 pm

    My favorite city is the one I live in… San Francisco! It couldn’t be more of a runners paradise with the trails and nature within miles of the city, many urban city runs and the GGB to cruise out and back on a clear day… even a foggy day is ethereal and mysterious to run through! San Francisco and the Bay area has some of the best food, eclectic residents and anything goes attitude, I feel blessed and so lucky to be able to live in my favorite city with some of the best running weather and views! 🙂 If you haven’t been here, come to visit soon! I’ll take you out for a run (urban or trail!)

  • AD November 22, 2013, 7:08 pm

    new orleans! the big easy is the best city in the world!

  • Kristen D November 22, 2013, 7:08 pm

    Barcelona! Loved studying there!

  • Rachel November 22, 2013, 7:28 pm

    Wow, favorite city? I’ve lived in some pretty great places & traveled to many as well so this is a toughie. Call me sentimental but I have to say my hometown of Birmingham, Michigan. It’s got a great “small town” feel but with lots of shopping & awesome restaurants & tons of parks (something I appreciate when I visit with my kids).

    Two separate things: Henry? Just stop. He is such a cutie pie. And have you ever had actual Tupelo honey? It’s unreal! I had no idea that honey could taste that rich. Google it, it’s legit 😉

  • Ailed November 22, 2013, 7:36 pm


  • Verna November 22, 2013, 7:51 pm

    Anchorage Alaska! So much history!

  • tara November 22, 2013, 7:53 pm

  • Katie November 22, 2013, 7:56 pm

    Seattle love it there

  • kim November 22, 2013, 7:57 pm

  • Jessie November 22, 2013, 8:06 pm

    I am in love with Chicago!!

  • Ilene November 22, 2013, 8:11 pm

    My favorite city just might be London too 🙂 I’m studying abroad here for the semester and feel like I haven’t even made a dent in seeing all there is to see and do here! Getting anxiety with less than a month to go before I head back to the US 🙁

  • Katie November 22, 2013, 8:14 pm

    Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica! It is so beautiful and everyone is super laid back. Plus it’s where I spent three weeks doing my yoga teacher training so it holds a special place in my heart!

  • Stacey Weaver November 22, 2013, 8:16 pm

    I live in Philadelphia but my favorite city is Denver, CO. It is so beautiful and has many places to run and hike.

  • Lindsey Gail November 22, 2013, 8:19 pm

    I would have to say St. Paul, Minnesota- I would gladly return there to live, or just to visit. There is always something to do, even if you just want take in some nature.

  • Kyla November 22, 2013, 8:32 pm

    My favorite city ever is Nashville, TN. Love the people, the music, the culture, the outdoors…everythang!

    PS: Your mother is beautiful, she’s got great skin!

  • Kim November 22, 2013, 8:36 pm

    Columbia, MO. There’s no place like home.

  • Lindsay November 22, 2013, 8:58 pm

    I live right outside of Philly and I still can’t get over how much I love the city. So much to do, great people, yummy food and beer.

  • TanyaS November 22, 2013, 9:16 pm

    I haven’t seen a lot of major cities, but I LOVED my trip to Boston. Stayed in Back Back in 2010 and loved every minute of it.

    • TanyaS November 22, 2013, 10:16 pm

      Back Bay dang it!

  • Allison November 22, 2013, 9:35 pm

    I agree….so hard to just pick one favorite city. So I’ll say my new favorite city is Kilkenny, Ireland where we went for our honeymoon 🙂

  • Mary November 22, 2013, 9:45 pm

    San Francisco. If I could afford to live anywhere, it would be there (though it would take me a while to jog up all those steep hills!)

  • Jenny O November 22, 2013, 9:46 pm

    Venice, Italy!
    I wish I were there right now sitting in a little cafe 🙂

  • Caiti November 22, 2013, 9:49 pm

    My favorite city has to be Montpelier, VT. It’s so quaint and homey, plus everyone is so welcoming. I would go back anytime (even in a New England winter!)

  • Shea November 22, 2013, 9:51 pm

    Montreal is ahhhhmazing!!

  • Cate November 22, 2013, 9:58 pm

    So hard to choose a favorite… but I have always loved Chicago! I moved here from Florida about three years ago because I always wanted to live here. I discover new things about the city all the time and it just makes me love it more! 🙂

  • Angie November 22, 2013, 10:05 pm

    My favorite city is Florence – Art, beautiful buildings, outdoor markets and gelato on every corner. I would move there in a heartbeat!

  • Erin D November 22, 2013, 10:06 pm

    I love Syracuse, NY!

  • Sarah November 22, 2013, 10:09 pm

    My favorite city is Cinque Terre!

  • Tiffany November 22, 2013, 10:16 pm

    Chicago, Illinois! Best foodie town EVAR!!

  • Lisa November 22, 2013, 10:30 pm

    Barcelona, a spectacular city of art and beauty, Paris a close second for the same reason and third my adopted home of Tel Aviv for its mix of small town feel/big city vibe while on the shores of the mediterranean sea, letting me soak in that beauty nearly every day of the year.

  • Kate November 22, 2013, 10:36 pm

    I moved to the Bay Area for grad school and San Francisco quickly became my favorite city! Amazing food, earthy crunchy, and I love having the ocean and mountains close by!

  • Amye November 22, 2013, 10:39 pm

    Loved our trip to Cancun! It was a great all inclusive vacation.

  • Erin November 22, 2013, 10:42 pm

    Lucerne, Switzerland! I went there last December and now I can’t wait to get back and explore the rest of the country, it was gorgeous.

  • Veronica November 22, 2013, 10:51 pm

    Barcelona. great views, amazing architecture and mmmm Paella

  • Dawn November 22, 2013, 10:51 pm

  • Caroline H November 22, 2013, 10:53 pm

    My favorite city is my hometown, Kansas City! 🙂

  • Lan November 22, 2013, 11:05 pm

    San Diego for the win! Love the outdoorsy lifestyle, weather, beautiful scenery and beaches.

  • Susan - Nurse on the Run November 22, 2013, 11:07 pm

    I spent a summer in Rome and fell in love with it…although I was just in Krakow about a month ago and it’s an AMAZING city.

  • Leah November 22, 2013, 11:10 pm

    My favorite city is traverse city, MI. its beautiful and relaxing. I love beaches and would love to go parasailing there sometime. Ive been wanting to try these laces and being 20 weeks pregnant, tying my shoes is becoming uncomfortable, lol.

  • Megan November 23, 2013, 12:23 am

    My favorite city ever is Tucson, AZ. I moved there shortly after graduating from college and absolutely fell in love. It has gorgeous mountains with tons of fun outdoor activities, and fantastic restaurants. Plus it is a large city with over 1 million people, but it never feels like it because there’s no crazy traffic and plenty of open space.

  • Jess November 23, 2013, 12:29 am

    Favourite city.. that is a hard question! I’m going to go with Istanbul: it was so different and the people were so amazingly friendly!

  • Hannah November 23, 2013, 12:42 am

    My favorite city is Barcelona!! So beautiful and fun!

  • Keri November 23, 2013, 12:44 am

  • Rachel November 23, 2013, 12:57 am

    My current favorite is Budapest, Hungary. The city is actually two cites, Buda and Pest, separated by the Duna River. Bridges and boats are everywhere, the food is amazing and the scenery is breathtaking! The best part was the Gellert Bath and Hotel – thermal pools and baths with affordable day passes where you can relax after a day of hiking around the hills outside of town. One of the places I will happily visit again and again 🙂

  • Lauren November 23, 2013, 1:00 am

    Washington DC! I went to college there and miss it! Good size, good food, good culture!

  • katyrenee November 23, 2013, 1:03 am

    My heart has always been in Paris.

  • Kiki November 23, 2013, 2:26 am

    San Diego!

  • Kris November 23, 2013, 2:50 am

    Wow, tough but I’ll say Washington, D.C. where I moved when I graduated from college. So much to do and see!

  • Kathy November 23, 2013, 6:50 am


  • AlisonJ November 23, 2013, 7:04 am

    Burlington, Vermont. Beautiful views of the lake and mountains, big focus on local foods, restaurants & shops, and the cutest downtown street (Church Street).

  • Simply Life November 23, 2013, 7:06 am

    Oh he is too cute in his winter gear!

  • Jessica November 23, 2013, 7:11 am

    London is my favorite is too! I’ve been there 5 times since I was 14 and I love, love, love it. 🙂

  • Jamie November 23, 2013, 7:31 am

    This one is hard! I’m going with Myrtle Beach we had a lovely vacation there a few years ago.

  • Caroline November 23, 2013, 7:47 am

    My favorite city ever is Florence, Italy! I spent a semester there in college.

  • Sorayya November 23, 2013, 8:00 am

    I just moved to London and have to admit, it has my favorite things about so many different cities, all in one 🙂

  • Emily B November 23, 2013, 8:02 am

    My favorite city is Boulder, CO!

  • Amber November 23, 2013, 8:36 am

    My favorite city is kinda hard to pick…. I need to travel more! But I loved NYC!!!

  • Emily @SinfulNutrition November 23, 2013, 8:37 am

    I wouldn’t be a New England gal if I didn’t love Boston. Oh, and goat cheese grits?! SIGN. ME. UP!

  • Marlaina November 23, 2013, 8:52 am

    Good ol’ Boston!

  • Allison November 23, 2013, 9:01 am


  • Andrea November 23, 2013, 9:03 am


  • Anna E. November 23, 2013, 9:08 am

    Prague, CZ. I studied abroad in Prague and it is one of the most beautiful, historic, and entertaining cities. Even the people are beautiful! 🙂

  • Robyne November 23, 2013, 9:12 am

    First, I love Lock Laces. My shoes always feel just right and I never have to worry about them coming untied! I love running in Chicago. The Chicago marathon goes through some of the greatest neighborhoods. The architecture changes through each neighborhood and the crowd is fantastic!

  • Amy I. November 23, 2013, 9:16 am

    My favorite city is my current city/home San Diego! It is beautiful, diverse, and fun!

  • jen November 23, 2013, 9:22 am

    My favorite city is Charleston…beautiful and so much history!!

  • Aishah @ Coffee, Love, Health November 23, 2013, 9:26 am

    I would say New York city, because I went there twice with my siblings 🙂 It was our first road trip and it was so fun being with them <3 I love the pic of Henry- so cute that he's walking through the tunnel and not crawling yet lol!

  • Carrie L November 23, 2013, 9:45 am

    Man my fave city would have to be Paris! So so beautiful and romantic!

  • Aerevyn November 23, 2013, 9:47 am

    Gotta love Savannah, GA!

    So much off the wall history – Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil — places to bike, good music and good food!

  • Tiffany S November 23, 2013, 10:02 am

    I feel like I haven’t traveled a lot…I think my favorite city is Chicago.

  • Jerica November 23, 2013, 10:02 am

    That is such a hard question! ONE of my favorite cities is Luxembourg. I visited for the first time this summer and was blown away by how they manage to keep their old-city charm, but still have lots of new restaurants, shops, and things to do – like outdoor movies in the summer! Plus, the food and wine is amazing. Love the idea of these laces – great giveaway, Caitlin!

  • Shahla November 23, 2013, 10:04 am

    Berlin, Germany!

  • Katie November 23, 2013, 10:05 am

    My favourite city ever is Rome. There’s so much history everywhere and its so nice to walk around and experience it all.

  • Jess B. November 23, 2013, 10:11 am

    Oooo good question! I love Portland ME, I love Boston and Chicago, I love Rome and Paris, but I think after spending a month living in Marburg Germany when I was 21, that is the little city that has my heart 😊

  • Laura j November 23, 2013, 10:15 am

    San Francisco is my favorite city I’ve been to, but there are so many I’d like to visit

  • Heather November 23, 2013, 10:26 am

    My favorite city would probably have to be Springdale, UT – where Zion National Park is, my all-time favorite park. Would love to live there someday 🙂

  • Jen in TX November 23, 2013, 11:26 am

    Your Asheville sounds like our Austin. Love their slogan, “Keep Austin Weird.”

  • Mary November 23, 2013, 11:29 am

    LA! I’m such a city girl! 🙂

  • Danielle November 23, 2013, 11:47 am

    I’d have to say Cinque Terre in Italy. It’s technically five towns thus the name but it’s one of the most amazing places I’ve been to. We hiked along a trail overlooking Cinque Terre with it’s coast and the views were breathtakingly beautiful. I’d visit again in a heartbeat.

  • Maggie @ Just a Couple More Pages November 23, 2013, 11:51 am

    The day I read your Lock Laces review my shoes came untied 3 times in half an hour at my bootcamp class. My new sneakers have the worst laces.

    My favorite city to visit is probably Portland, OR. I love the energy and the food and the people!

  • Jill November 23, 2013, 12:49 pm

    My favorite city is where I live- New York City!

  • Sunny November 23, 2013, 12:59 pm

    I love St. Louis or Charleston!

  • Amanda November 23, 2013, 1:01 pm

    I’m going to vote for Buffalo, NY as my favorite city! Woot, woot hometown!

  • Abbey November 23, 2013, 1:23 pm

    I would love to win these! I think my favorite city is maybe London too. I did a tour of the Scottish Highlands and I loved the city we stopped in by Loch Ness, but I don’t remember what it’s called! oops.

  • Bonnie November 23, 2013, 1:27 pm

    Ohh tough question…I’ll always love San Francisco since I’m from there but live so far away now, but I recently visited Boston for the first time and thought that city was awesome! Thanks for the giveaway. 😀

  • Samantha November 23, 2013, 1:36 pm

    My favorite city is Ocean City, Maryland because I have so many great memories going there for family vacations growing up!

  • Jess November 23, 2013, 1:36 pm

    I love Berlin! I owe my wanderlust to my high school history teacher, who traveled the world while serving in the military and talked a lot about the different cities he had visited and lived in. When I found myself in Europe with no real itinerary for a few weeks, I realized that I needed to go to Berlin, just to see where it all began for him. I had never thought about Berlin as a city I would want to spend time in, but I fell in love with it – not only because it really is a world class city, but because it felt like the root of my love for travel. I would love to visit again some day!

  • Tracy November 23, 2013, 2:06 pm

    Hard to choose! I’ll say San Francisco! Or San Diego? I might change my mind tomorrow though!

  • SuperCutePetContest November 23, 2013, 2:10 pm

    Ashburn, VA ! It’s also one of the internet capitals of the country. It’s about an hour outside of DC and my husband and I LOVE it. It might seem kinda silly to list it among other big cities like Paris, San Diego, or even DC (we’ve had enough of that place!), but after living in DC, Ashburn is glorious! There’s so much sky and so much green spaces (and the people are so freaking nice) it’s unbelievable that we are only an hour from DC.

  • Laura November 23, 2013, 2:19 pm

    My favorite city has to be Washington D.C.

  • Aubrey November 23, 2013, 2:37 pm

    I went to college in Milwaukee and loved it! It has a big city feel- but it still smaller then most big cities!

  • Anastacia November 23, 2013, 2:37 pm

    My favorite city ever is Ithaca, NY. I love it for a lot of reasons. One is the scenery. It has the most beautiful gorges and natural waterfalls with dozens of natural hiking and running trails plus it is on the beautiful Cayuga Lake. I also love the eco-friendly mindset of almost everyone there. There are so many fellow health food lovers and no shortage of fresh grown produce and fruit. Plus everyone pitches in to reuse and recycle. There is also a vast range of cultures.

  • Sara November 23, 2013, 3:03 pm

    My favorite city…it’s probably a tie between Portland, Oregon and the whole Denver/Fort Collins/Boulder area of Colorado!

  • Kristin November 23, 2013, 3:33 pm

    The Portland area is my favorite. Love the hiking, shopping and overall feel of the area!

  • Kimberly November 23, 2013, 3:52 pm

    My favorite city is Ann Arbor, Michigan. It is difficult to choose, though.

  • Lindsey November 23, 2013, 4:33 pm

    Boston. So much to offer, manageable size. Had four wonderful years living there as a graduate student.

  • Jeannine November 23, 2013, 4:50 pm

    San Francisco is so fun!

  • Molly@This Life Is Sparkling November 23, 2013, 5:16 pm

  • Amy November 23, 2013, 5:34 pm

    I loved London when we went there, but we’re going to Spain in February (Madrid, Seville, and Barcelona) so we’ll see if one of those becomes a frontrunner!

  • Jess H November 23, 2013, 5:42 pm

    My favorite city is Big Sky, Montana. It’s peaceful and beautiful!

  • donna November 23, 2013, 6:00 pm

    I love the outer banks, north Carolina. the town of waves is my favorite!

  • Anne November 23, 2013, 6:54 pm

    The Tupelo Honey in Knoxville has had crazy lines since it opened a year ago. The biscuits are amazing though!!

    • Anne November 23, 2013, 6:57 pm

      Also, my favorite city might be Chicago. The pizza alone is worth the plane ride.

  • Meghan November 23, 2013, 7:01 pm

    Barcelona!! I love Spain. It’s gorgeous, so much to do there and so romantic.

  • Alexandra November 23, 2013, 7:22 pm

    My favorite city that I’ve been to so far is Rome. So beautiful, historic and don’t even get me started on the food!

  • Kristina November 23, 2013, 7:32 pm

    Knoxville, TN. I lived there for a year and miss it so much. It’s such a fun city, filled with tons of interesting people and great restaurants and bars.

  • Carrie C. in VA November 23, 2013, 7:42 pm

    My fave city is Burlington VT… hip, liberal, and close to family.

  • Macrae November 23, 2013, 8:12 pm

    We stayed in a villa in Tuscany, whatever city that was it was absolute Heaven! As for U.S….SAVANNAH!

  • Krit November 23, 2013, 8:32 pm

    It’s a tie for me! Chicago & NYC

  • Anna {Herbivore Triathlete} November 23, 2013, 8:41 pm

    I would love to go to Asheville! I don’t know what my favorite city is, probably the town I grew up in, Rochester NY.

    I really loved Montreal when I visited. So much history!

  • Stacey November 23, 2013, 8:51 pm

    I would agree with you about London. Love that city. So easy to navigate, so much to see. And it has the royal family too.

    Marquette, Michigan…..beautiful Lake Superior, charming small town, great community events and spectacular no matter the season!

  • Lacey November 23, 2013, 9:15 pm

    My favorite city is Seattle! So much to see, friendly people, AMAZING food! What more can you ask for!

  • Theresa November 23, 2013, 9:56 pm

    Seattle is pretty awesome with it’s many great food spots, markets, and parks!

  • Kathy November 23, 2013, 10:35 pm

    Favourite city…it’s a tie, between Vienna and London…and either one at Christmas time would be amazing!

  • Kelly November 23, 2013, 10:45 pm

    My favorite city is Berlin!

  • Sarah L November 23, 2013, 11:03 pm

    There are so many great cities that I’m not sure I can pick just one! One city that I really enjoy is Washington, DC.

  • Jillian November 23, 2013, 11:11 pm

    My favorite city is Columbus, Ohio.

    New Orleans- can’t wait to get back!!

  • Kate November 24, 2013, 6:40 am

    It’s a hard choice, but I love Montreal.

  • Jen@PregnantDiabetic November 24, 2013, 7:28 am

    Henry in the snow hat is the cutest picture ever, he’s adorable! Also, that kid menu rocks, I wish more places had menus like that!!

  • Marie November 24, 2013, 8:30 am

    My favorite city is Madison, New Hampshire. I lived there for two years but then had to abruptly return home to GA. I did a lot of growing up while there, gained a lot of wisdom and enjoyed the quaint and simple way of life :). It’s such a beautiful area!

  • Tera November 24, 2013, 8:56 am

    Munich, Germany! So much history, great people, great food, great beer and I love the peaceful English garden.

  • Hannah November 24, 2013, 10:19 am

    I just went to NYC for the first time earlier this month. I was there for less than 48 hours, but I’ll be going back as soon as I can- it was love at first site for me and NYC. Prior to that, Asheville would have gotten my vote for favorite city. We get away there every chance we can get!

  • Sarah November 24, 2013, 10:35 am

    Galway, Ireland! I lived there when I studied abroad, and I loved every second.

  • Gena November 24, 2013, 1:09 pm

    Paris, France. Sigh. Wish I could go back and visit (and soon!).

  • Stacey @ Starpulp November 24, 2013, 1:27 pm


  • Melissa November 24, 2013, 2:19 pm

    I’ve visited many cities, but my heart will always be in Chicago!

  • Lauren Jamison November 24, 2013, 2:41 pm

    I’m from Asheville, and it’s seriously one of the best cities on Earth 🙂 If/when you go back, definitely try Rosetta’s Kitchen. It’s a great vegetarian restaurant. I’ve never been that impressed with Tupelo Honey (although I know a million people are), and The Laughing Seed (all veg) is great, but Rosetta’s is like comfort food, home cooking type of vegetarian. I love it!

  • Molly November 24, 2013, 3:03 pm

    I love Asheville too but I would have to say Barcelona!

  • Lucia November 24, 2013, 6:38 pm

    I’m on a trip to NYC right now and love it but I also LOVE Venice.

  • Amber P November 24, 2013, 6:58 pm

    I live in Bellingham, WA. Grew up in the Seattle area, so my favorite cities (aside from where I live) remind me of Seattle. So, either San Francisco (domestic) or Guadalajara, MX (international). Not sure why Guadalajara reminds me of Seattle, but it’s an incredible place!

  • Alice November 24, 2013, 7:00 pm

    Hmmm…tough one. I would say London is my favorite. But there are so many close seconds it’s tough to pick!

  • Lindsey V November 24, 2013, 7:15 pm

    I would have to say Sydney, Australia.

  • Katie M November 24, 2013, 8:14 pm

    My fav city is Minneapolis. It is an awesome city with miles of bike and running paths, lots of cultural opportunities, a great food scene, and happening yoga scene.

  • Kristin November 24, 2013, 9:13 pm

    I lived in Granada, Spain for a while in college and I would move back in a heartbeat. So much history and culture, nice weather, and great eats!

  • Kerry November 24, 2013, 10:31 pm

    Portland, Oregon is my favorite city EVER! Bike friendly, great vegan food, and happy people. What’s not to love?

  • Wendy November 24, 2013, 10:55 pm

    My favorite city is San Diego

  • Cassandra November 25, 2013, 12:57 am

    My favorite city is Santa Cruz…can’t get enough of the ocean breeze. I love how Earth conscious everyone is there.

  • Elizabeth November 25, 2013, 12:57 am

    Cleveland, Ohio… Someone’s gotta give it some love!

  • Sarah November 25, 2013, 10:13 am

    My favorite city is New York…but only when it’s not freezing cold.

  • Amber B. November 25, 2013, 10:43 am

    Bellingham, Washington 🙂

  • Ang November 25, 2013, 10:59 am

    It’s a tough decision but I think I’ll go with New Orleans. Savannah, GA and Charleston, SC are right behind it though!

    London, Paris is my favorite place to visit! #kangaArticles

  • Rosalie November 25, 2013, 11:52 am

    Chicago! There is literally no end to the amazing foods you can get there.

  • Ana November 25, 2013, 12:27 pm

    I am from Bogota, Colombia so obviously Bogota has a very big piece of my heart !! that is where my family still leaves so going home is to go to family and that is the best feeling in the world !! However, a city that i totally fell in love was Brisbane, Australia that city has so much magic, very lay back and clean, amazing weather and very active 🙂

  • Wendy November 25, 2013, 12:34 pm

    Have only been there once, but I loved Vancouver – so beautiful!

  • Becca November 25, 2013, 12:57 pm

    Paris, Newport RI, NYC, Rome

  • Katrina November 25, 2013, 1:17 pm

    Boston, Seattle, and the whole state of Hawaii!
