By now you’ve heard about the readers of Travel & Leisure naming Baltimore one of the worst-dressed cities. (I took umbrage until I looked down at the white tennis shoes I was wearing with a pair of old black sweats and an Elvis T-shirt. Hey, I was working. Alone. In front of my computer!) The result was just one part of a larger survey polling readers on many aspects of American cities.
So, how did Baltimore do?
You’ll be glad to learn — and probably not surprised to learn — that Baltimore came out on top in the category of Most Sport Crazed (#8). We also did pretty well in the classical music (thank you, Peabody; #13), historical monuments (#16) and offbeat (#17) categories.
Not so hot? We ranked at the bottom for safety, luxury stores and attractiveness.
