When you think of a country’s cultural roots, you’re likely to think of the places where it’s rooted: the indigenous cultures, the ancient lands and the ancient peoples.
But if you want to eat and drink the places that matter most, you can’t overlook the cities and towns.
There’s a reason that some places in America, like Portland, Oregon, and New York, are the most culturally diverse in the world.
The reason is the people who live in those places — and that’s especially true of the cities.
These diverse places are often considered the centers of culture and life.
But there are also places that are relatively isolated, and those are also the places you’re probably least likely to want to visit.
So, where are the best places to eat, drink, or even play in a city?
We surveyed over 400 people to find out.
First up: What are the top 10 most culturally-isolated cities in America?
This list includes all of the top cities in the U.S. by population, with a special emphasis on the most densely populated cities in urban centers like San Francisco and New Orleans.
We’ve also divided the list into five sub-cities — New York City, Philadelphia, Boston, Washington, D.C., and Baltimore.
Then we broke it down by geography to determine the top ten most culturally and geographically isolated places in the United States.
