Houston has been showered with accolades in recent years for everything from our cool factor to our fabulous food.
Now you can add pretty people to the list.
Travel and Leisure readers ranked Houston among the top 10 cities with the most attractive people.
Here’s why we landed the number nine spot, according to T&L:
"Beyonce is from Houston. Tom Ford, Patrick Swayze, and Matt Bomer, too. That list alone should earn Space City a high score for attractiveness. But T+L readers also note the city's penchant for fashion. Montrose neighborhood's boutiques and the enormous Galleria Mall's 375 luxury shops ensure Houstonians always look their best. See them wearing athleisure clothes in any of the city's 337 parks, or in black-ties and gowns at performances from the world famous Houston symphony, ballet, and opera companies,"
Um, you forgot J.J. Watt, Andre Johnson, Kelly Rowland, Jennifer Garner, The Duff sisters, Dennis Quaid, Michael Strahan, Alexis Bledel … and on and on and on.
Only one other Texas city made the top 15 and – shocker! – it wasn’t Austin or Dallas. (insert sarcastic grin here)
Congratulations to San Antonio for snagging the number 15 spot. T+L readers said “San Antonians themselves were just as eye-catching as the cityscape.” And friendly too!
Here’s the complete list:
1. Honolulu, Hawaii
2. Boulder, Colorado
3. Scottsdale, Arizona
4. Salt Lake City, Utah
5. San Diego, California
6. Nashville, Tennessee
7. Charleston, South Carolina
8. Denver, Colorado
9. Houston, Texas
10. Madison, Wisconsin
11. Alexandria, Virginia
12. Las Vegas, Nevada
13. Savannah, Georgia
14. Norfolk, Virginia
15. San Antonio
Those not-so-nice T&L readers also named America’s least attractive cities. Fortunately, no Texas cities made this list. If you’re originally from one of these cities, no worries. You’re in Houston now so you can count yourself among the pretty people.
