Best Big Cities list: New Orleans ranks No. 5

The readers’ poll ranks the top 15 cities with populations of 150,000 or more

While not that big of a city, New Orleans still ranked high on Conde Nast Traveler’s list of The Best Big Cities in the U.S. that came out this week.

In the ranking derived from reader votes, New Orleans is No. 5 out of 15 cities with populations of 150,000 or more.

Conde Nast Traveler’s eye-rolly description mentions Katrina, calls the city “the Big Easy,” and recommends eating beignets to “kick back New Orleans style”—but no doubt the city snagged a nice spot on the list.
