Best Cities In North America

The Top Ten
1 Toronto, Canada Toronto is the most populous city in Canada, the provincial capital of Ontario, and the centre of the Greater Toronto Area, the most populous metropolitan area in Canada. Toronto is an international centre of business, finance, arts, and culture, and is recognized as one of the most multicultural and... read more

Toronto has everything: water, seasons, great food, diversity, proximity to the US, Montreal, Ottawa, and Quebec. The city is growing, boasts an awesome skyline, and features lots of great greenery.

I think Toronto is the best city for a few reasons:
1. It's much safer than other major cities like New York or Chicago.
2. There are a lot of things to do in Toronto, partly because of Niagara Falls.
3. There's lots of delicious food there.

I've been to Vegas, LA, Prague, Berlin, and several other notable cities. Toronto blows them all out of the water, at least in everything except for professional sports.

2 New York City, United States The City of New York, often called New York City or simply New York, is the most populous city in the United States. New York City is also the most densely populated major city in the United States.

I live in NYC and I've been to Miami and LA. I find that NYC beats them by a long way. They have fewer museums, less crime, and some of the best restaurants, buildings, and museums.

Places you gotta visit in NYC:
- MoMA Museum
- Metropolitan Museum of Art
- Central Park
- Coney Island (Brooklyn)
- New York Aquarium (Brooklyn)
- Bronx Zoo (Bronx)
- Empire State Building
- Freedom Tower or World Trade Center
- Wall Street

Why number 2? It's wrong. It's number 1. It's awesome, and people trash-talking because it's smelly (ok, the Bronx sucks because that's where crime usually is) but other than that, it's amazing. I went twice there and it's my number 1.

3 Vancouver, Canada Vancouver is a coastal seaport city in western Canada, located in the Lower Mainland region of British Columbia.

It's like Seattle, but in Canada. It's very pretty, and they film a lot up here. It can be cloudy and drizzly most of the year, and people are weird and detached, but it looks cool.

Vancouver is a big city but still has amazing scenery. Mountains, ocean, rivers, and beaches are all part of its charm. Toronto is a good city, but it has too many people and lots of homeless. Montreal is also good, but the city literally smells like pot. Vancouver is cultural and just amazing. No other city in the top five largest Canadian cities has whales, or even an ocean, for that matter...

4 Montreal, Canada Montreal is the most populous municipality in the Canadian province of Quebec and the second-most populous municipality in Canada. Originally called Ville-Marie, it is named after Mount Royal, the triple-peaked hill in the heart of the city. The city is centred on the Island of Montreal, which took... read more

Montreal is a big city with a lot of history. It is also a multicultural city with many attractions. Studying here is the best, as Montreal is bilingual.

Great nightlife, fantastic restaurants, and a great place to learn a second or third language. There is a fantastic university ecosystem.

Best Canadian city, it's the most historical city in North America (first metropolis in North America) and still remains the 8th most populated city in North America. It also has the biggest underground city in the world and hosts the annual Formula 1.

5 Chicago, United States

World-class city with a beautiful lakefront and vibrant neighborhoods. Some of the best cuisine and architecture in the country. You'll never be bored with tons of museums, sporting events, theater, and music venues.

6 Calgary, Canada Calgary is a city in the Canadian province of Alberta. It is situated at the confluence of the Bow River and the Elbow River in the south of the province, in an area of foothills and prairie, about 80 km east of the front ranges of the Canadian Rockies.

Amazing city, very underrated. Ranked the most livable in North America four years in a row.

7 Los Angeles, United States Los Angeles, officially the City of Los Angeles and often abbreviated as L.A., is the largest city in California. It has an estimated population of nearly 4 million, and is the second-largest city in the United States, after New York City, and the third-largest city in North America, after Mexico City... read more
8 Mexico City, Mexico Mexico City, or the City of Mexico, is the capital of Mexico and the most populous city in North America.
9 Houston, United States Houston is the most populous city in the U.S. state of Texas and the fourth most populous city in the United States, with a census-estimated population of 2.312 million in 2017. It is the most populous city in the Southern United States and on the Gulf Coast of the United States.
10 Seattle, United States Seattle is a seaport city on the west coast of the United States. It is the seat of King County, Washington.

Progressive, eco-friendly, whip-smart, multicultural, and embracing of art and culture. Seattle boasts the best ingredients in the USA and some of the very best foods - in the grocers and the cafés. Seattle was built in a rainforest and is almost an island. So much water, from the Orcas traversing the Salish Sea to Lake Washington, Ship Canal, and Lake Union. Seattle is what most other cities wish they could be. Apart from Montréal, no city deserves to best Seattle on this list.

Cool city. People are kind of weird and alternative. Beautiful ocean and forest! I like Seattle, as well as Portland.

The Contenders
11 Boston, United States Boston is Massachusetts’ capital and largest city. Founded in 1630, it’s one of the oldest cities in the U.S.

I absolutely love Boston. Can't wait to leave Europe and move to Boston.

The place looks nice and is great to travel to.

12 Palo Alto, California, United States
13 Madison, Wisconsin, United States
14 Salt Lake City, Utah, United States

It's kind of small but pretty chill. There are a lot of outdoor activities and mountains. It's surprisingly diverse.

15 Ottawa, Canada
16 Denver, United States Denver, officially the City and County of Denver, is the capital and most populous municipality of the U.S. state of Colorado.

Great weather, scenery, food, recreation, and the Colorado Rockies are the best in the U.S.

It's a bigger, cooler Salt Lake City with nice mountains and beer. I wonder if the food is good?

17 Pittsburgh, United States Pittsburgh is a city in the western part of the U.S. state of Pennsylvania and the second most populated city in the state.

Not on a lot of people's list, but it has a cool hometown feel. It is affordable, and it has grown a lot, unlike much of the Rust Belt.

18 Orlando, United States
19 Havana, Cuba Havana is the capital city, largest city, province, major port, and leading commercial center of Cuba.
20 Boulder, United States
21 Edmonton, Canada Edmonton, the capital of Alberta in Canada, is known for its festivals and natural beauty. The West Edmonton Mall is one of the largest shopping and entertainment complexes in the world. The North Saskatchewan River Valley provides a vast urban parkland with hiking and biking trails. Edmonton hosts... read more

Jobs, high salaries, and affordable real estate are what truly matter. For the price of a small condo in Toronto or Vancouver, you can have a huge house in Edmonton, multiple luxury vehicles, all the toys you want, and plenty left over to vacation for months throughout the year if your job allows.

22 Puerta Vallarta, Mexico

I think Puerta Vallarta is pretty cool.

23 Miami, United States Miami, officially the City of Miami, is the cultural, economic and financial center of South Florida. Miami is the seat of Miami-Dade County, the most populous county in Florida.

Have you ever been there? It is the number one hands down!

24 Bellingham, United States
25 Washington D.C., United States

It's kind of boring. But there's a lot of money there and there are nice malls. What can be bad?
