Two San Diego Neighborhoods Rank Among Friendliest in US
If you’re looking to move to some of the friendliest places in the country, then you may want to consider two San Diego neighborhoods that made the top 10 list.
Ranking a neighborhood based on its friendliness may seem like a tough task, but home improvement company All Star Home set out to do just that, according to FOX 5 San Diego.
First, All Star Home created a list of popular areas in the U.S. by looking at the 200 most-viewed neighborhoods in the country during the 2022 calendar year. From there, the company had to narrow down the listing to a top 10 somehow, which it did by looking at reviews.
More specifically, the study analyzed nearly 150,000 Google reviews for businesses and stores — including grocery stores, gas stations, coffee shops, bars, and banks — in the top 200 neighborhoods. From there, they determined the ranking by looking at the percentage of reviews that had the word “friendly” in them.
The result? A list of 10 places in the U.S. with the most friendly staff — a list that includes two San Diego neighborhoods.
Here’s the ranking.
- Magnolia, Seattle, Washington
- Kingwood, Houston, Texas
- Highland, Saint Paul, Minnesota
- Rancho Bernardo, San Diego, California
- South Boulevard-Park Row Historic, Dallas, Texas
- Casas Adobes, Tucson, Arizona
- Mount Tabor, Portland, Oregon
- Catalina Foothills, Tucson, Arizona
- Rancho Penasquitos, San Diego, California
- East Colorado Springs, Colorado Springs, Colorado
Looking at the list, the two San Diego neighborhoods mean that America’s Finest City was one of two metropolitan areas that had multiple neighborhoods rank.
Additionally, all of the cities are located in the Western parts of the United States, suggesting that the West is generally more friendly than cities on the East Coast.
