The 9 America's Best Cities for Vegans

by Vegan Culinary Cruises Luxury – All Inclusive – All Vegan
The best cities for vegans are the ones that have the highest number of vegan restaurants and a culinary cruise specifically for vegans. It's also important to find a city where there's a high proportion of vegan-friendly businesses. 

There are a lot of reasons why people choose to go vegan. For some, it's a personal health decision; for others, it's an ethical stance against animal cruelty. Whatever your reason for going vegan, if you're hoping to settle down in a city where there are plenty of options for plant-based dining and shopping, these following nine cities in the US are the best bets. There's more diversity, a wider range of restaurants and cultural events, and more vegan-friendly stores in these big cities than anywhere else in the country.


Los Angeles, CA

Los Angeles has an incredible number of vegan restaurants. You can find everything from Indian to Middle Eastern, Thai to Japanese, and even some Mexican restaurants with a meatless menu.

There are also several different vegan food festivals in LA every year, including one called VegFest which takes place at the end of August each year. Additionally, there's a vegan night market event that happens twice a month (one on Saturday and one on Sunday), where you can get all kinds of street food options.
