Have trouble finding great places to eat while traveling as a vegetarian? Apartment Guide recently ran the data and came up with the best cities to travel as a vegetarian, based on the number of vegetarian-related businesses in cities with populations of more than 100,000.


The top destination? Charleston, South Carolina. The city has one veggie-based business for every 2,141 people. There are four organic restaurants, 38 vegetarian restaurants and 21 vegan restaurants within the city limits.


The second runner-up was Berkeley, California, with one vegetarian option for every 2,308 people.


Boulder, Colorado, comes in not far behind, with a vegetarian option for every 2,329 people.


The other destinations in the top 10 included Ann Arbor, Michigan; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Savannah, Georgia; Salt Lake City, Utah; Orlando, Florida; Portland, Oregon; and Richmond, Virginia. There’s not a big difference between the top contender and Richmond, though; the southern city has 50 vegetarian and 24 vegan eateries, so technically more than Charleston, though there’s a larger amount of overall options in Richmond, which pushes it back down the list.


However, if you look at just the number of vegetarian and veggie-based options alone, versus the number of vegetarian options compared to others, you get a much different picture. In that case, New York City comes out on top with nearly 500 veggie-friendly businesses, followed by Chicago, Los Angeles, San Diego and Seattle.
