Here's what they had to say about Portland.
' Readers continue to be captivated by this Maine city’s charm, from the Old Port’s cobblestone streets to longtime foodie magnets like Fore Street and Allagash Brewing Co. This year, the city also scored well for one throwback feature: cool bookstores like Longfellow Books, which offers new and used books as well as an in-store cat. To sleep in a literate environs, stay at the Press Hotel, the boutique hotel located in the old Gannett Building, where Maine’s Portland Press Herald used to be published, and where rooms come with vintage desks. Assuming you are not working on any deadlines yourself, the town also ranked high for feeling relaxing.'
Park City, Utah came in at #1.
