REPORT: DC One Of Nation's 'Rudest Cities'

WASHINGTON (WUSA/AP) -- Pushed on the Metro? Honked at when driving in Dupont Circle? Lousy service at a Capitol Hill restaurant?

Travel & Leisure magazine's annual survey of America's Favorite Cities rated the nation's capital the fifth rudest city in the nation. Nearby Baltimore came in at number seven.

The magazine asked readers to rate 35 cities on 54 different features including affordable hotels, great restaurants and the personality of the locals.

Los Angeles topped the list of rude cities, followed by New York.

Travel and Leisure Magazine writes this about DC:

Our nation's capital ranks No. 1 for monuments, and if you want a sense of how the locals will take to you, imagine hugging the Lincoln Memorial. The locals here are a brainy crowd–they rank No. 4 for intelligence–but as President Truman supposedly once said, if you want a friend in this town, get a dog.

Can't say I disagree with us being in the Top 5. I'm born and raised in the District and I feel that way just walking down the street--no matter if I'm in Southeast, Downtown, or upper Northwest. A lot of people from here just don't possess the most basic of manners.
