Southwest Airlines, Zagat and the New York Times have also recognized Baltimore for it’s rich cultural history, diversity and beauty.

Much has been made about Baltimore’s violent element, and yes, those statistics are real. But Mayor Pugh is hoping that stories like these and the appointment of a new police commissioner can serve as inspiration that all is not lost.

Other cities that made the Forbes list included Louisville, Detroit, Savannah and Richmond.
