Key West, USA

Key West might be the lowest latitude of land in the United States, but it’s at the top of our list of most excellent cities in the world. Maybe it has to do with the fact that the sun is always shining, the locals are always smiling, and the people are always dining (on key lime pie).

Certificate of Excellence winners were selected using a proprietary algorithm that takes into account the quality, quantity, and recency of user reviews, as well as the business’ tenure on the site. Recipients must maintain an overall TripAdvisor rating of at least four out of five, have a minimum number of reviews and have been listed on TripAdvisor for at least twelve months. A business must be listed for the full 12-month qualifying period between April 1 to March 31 to be considered. Recipients are announced only once a year in late May.
