Oct. 16 is World Food Day. In honor of the day, WalletHub, the personal-finance website, released its report on 2021’s Best Foodie Cities in America. To determine the best and cheapest local foodie scenes, WalletHub compared more than 180 of the largest U.S. cities across 29 key metrics. The data set ranges from affordability and accessibility of high-quality restaurants to food festivals per capita to craft breweries and wineries per capita.

 

Foodies still have time to book a weekend getaway to one of these best cities to celebrate World Food Day.

 

Some of the key findings show Orlando, Florida, has the most gourmet specialty food stores per square root of population, which is 19.4 percent more than lowest-ranking Pearl City, Hawai’i. Orlando has the most restaurants and ice cream per square root of population, whereas Pearl City, Hawai’i, and South Vermont have the fewest.

 

Santa Rosa, California, has the highest ratio of full-service restaurants to fast-food establishments compared to Jackson, Mississippi, which ranks the lowest.

 

The top five Foodie Cities in America are:

  1. Portland, Oregon
  2. Orlando, Florida
  3. Miami, Florida
  4. San Francisco, California
  5. Austin, Texas
