Top Tourist Hating Cities
There are cities in the U.S. that are friendly and welcoming to tourists ... and then there are other cities that would rather the tourists just go away.
Stratos, a jet charter company, decided to use Twitter data to see how tourist-friendly – or unfriendly – cities are … according to Twitter, anyway.
They compiled more than 37,000 geotagged tweets from June 1, 2014 to July 20, 2015 that contained the terms “tourist” and “tourists” and determined that the cities where Twitter users were most friendly toward tourists were Chicago, Atlanta, Philadelphia and Miami.
And then there were the cities that hated tourists. Here are the survey’s Top 10 Tourist-Hating Cities:
10. San Francisco
9. Los Angeles
7. Greensboro, North Carolina
6. Orlando, Florida
5. New Orleans
3. Las Vegas
2. New York City
1. Arlington, Texas
Arlington, Texas … really? That’s a bit surprising, no? Those are it according to the Huffington Post
