Aw Shucks: San Franciscans Voted Most Attractive People in America

Mirror mirror on the wall, who's the most attractive of them all?

Well, answers will vary depending on who you ask.

Travel+Leisure recently released their annual survey of 35 favorite cities in the U.S. Visitors voted San Francisco the city with the most attractive people. That's a 10-spot leap from last year. Looks like someone's been moisturizing.

However, actual San Francisco residents voted us number 18 in the looks department. Umm... would anyone else care for another slice of this humble pie?

Obviously we wouldn't be San Francisco without a little self-deprecation. Clearly we downgraded ourselves out of modesty, that's all. It's part of our charm.

San Francisco was also voted number one for fine-dining, gay friendliness, tech-savvy, wine bars, home decor and intelligence. Oh do stop, you're making us blush!

Unfortunately, we rank among the worst for affordability and barbecue. Not barbecue!

But who cares, right? Just keep in mind how pretty and witty and gay we are.

No way. Not even close. I live in SF but also lived in Newport Beach

Really?!  I'm a native San Franciscan and although there are a fair share of attractive-looking people in this city, I would never guess that we'd be voted the city with the most attractive residents.  Maybe it's the neighborhoods I circulate in, but I see plenty of homely or average-looking people on the buses and walking the sidewalks each day...I would've guessed that New York, Boston, or L.A. would be voted the city with the most attractive residents...

Seriously? Is this a joke? I love sf and all but the people there are attractive personality wise definitely NOT looks for straight people. Most of them look like pale, granola hipsters. Did the voters not go to Miami, so cal, New York or even mid west? Those people know how to look good and have better manners.

I love sf but I don't think the people there are attractive in looks. Personality, sure. Looks not so much. Most of them look like pale, granola hipsters like the pic above. Did they not check so cal, Miami, or new York. I would think those people would be more attractive or even in the mid west. Those people like to stay fit!

If that were true, there'd be no such thing as Berkeley goggles then...most people at Cal are SF locals.

There you see whats wrong with America. Rugged indivuduals, real men and women, versus nerds, geeks, shmocks and suckers.

Shows what type of readers you have ... they deserve another piece of cake ... and a bong hit.  Awesome city .. good looking people?  No resident would ever say that.

As far as the barbeque is concerned... you are correct SF Weekly... The barbeque in this town sucks... I'm from Kansas City so you can take me as an authority on the matter.

havent seen so many bitter people on a post in a while and it would be great if they read the article before commenting on how the rating was because san franciscans love themselves if you are one of these morons ill give you the cliff notes it says san franciscans rated themselves 18th but those that visit san francisco also known as visitors or people who do not live in san francisco rated the people number 1

Union Street does not have pretty people. Oh they think they are, but ugly fits better.

Was this taken from the Onion? Attractive as in "nice"? sure, I can buy that but not on straight looks.

tech-savvy, gay friendliness, fine dining...surrre, but most attractive?? we're not even the most attractive in cali - LA has far more attractive/sexier people than SF (plastic faces or not..lol).

@jessica7485 I am genuinely offended. Im sorry but, whats wrong with my manners exactlty? and are you gods gift to the world? are you the most beautiful person ever? no. Then dont come over here and say  i dont know how to look good.  im not saying im the most beautiful.  Im not saying i agree with this.  But im not talking shit about other people that i dont know anything about. So step off

@garonmc1 We read it...!!!  That is why we are commenting on it...!  Just because we don't live in San Francisco doesn't mean we aren't educated...I was born in San Francisco and my family is from there...does that make my comment more valid?

I thought he and the girl were the same person so I thought the article would be about SF having the most attractive trannies

Being genuinely offended by that instantly made you genuinely unattractive for being ridiculously hypersensitive
