We hope this list helps you find the best new City to travel to this summer with your music loving family and friends!

1.New Orleans, LA

New Orleans is the birthplace of jazz, so of course it's landed at #1 on our list of musical cities.

3. Seattle, WA

Not only is Seattle the birthplace of coffee shop culture, but also (and in some people's opinion more importantly), the birthplace of Grunge making it a major city for music lovers.
Countless bands have come from this rainy city, including Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Death Cab for Cutie, Macklemore, and Alice and the Chains, and it's still launching new indie bands and musicians.
