I would guess India, although I haven't been there myself. My grandmother went and from her descriptions I think it would be very vegan-friendly.<br><br><br><br>
Also London (gee, wonder if there's a connection?). OK, it's not a country .... When my vegan cousin went there he said it was great, there were so many places for him to eat.

I started a "Veg*n-Friendly Europe" thread and a lot of Europeans have replied describing the situation(s) there ... I'd check it out.<br><br><br><br>
When I lived in Amsterdam I was an omni so I didn't really notice how veg-friendly it was.

I found Bellingham, WA to be pretty vegan friendly. I'd say it the most vegan friendly place I've ever been.<br><br><br><br>
India is NOT AT ALL vegan friendly--which is not to say that the people there aren't friendly to vegans. It is just next to impossible to get vegan food there.

Well that's what I get for mentioning someplace I've never been! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rolleyes:">

i lived in durango, colorado. it was very vegan friendly. i have a friend who lives in santa cruz, califonia. she claims it is the most vegan friendly city here in the U.S. well next to san fransico, but that is just up the road from her. (btw, she has travelled most of the U.S.)

There's rankings at goveg.com for the US and Canada. I'll ruin some of the surprise:<br><br><br><br>
1. San Francisco<br><br>
2. Seattle<br><br>
3. New York<br><br>
4. Portland<br><br>
5. Honolulu<br><br>
6. Atlanta<br><br>
7. Minneapolis<br><br>
8. Orlando<br><br>
9. Asheville<br><br>
10. Houston<br><br><br><br>
I object to Houston, ****hole that it is. Philly got an honorable mention, which is not surprising - great veg-city. If it wasn't for the cheesesteak reputation...

BTW, in my extensive US travels, the worst city was probably Salt Lake City, UT. Honorable mentions to San Antonio (esp. bad for vegans), New Orleans, and Buffalo.

India's great for lacto-ovos, but they use a lot of dairy, so it's tough for vegans.<br><br><br><br>
San Fransisco is wonderful, I used to live there, so I visit a lot. I never worry about what to eat. My town (Austin, Texas) isn't as great as San Fransisco, but considering we're stuck in the middle of Texas, it's more than you could ever ask for.

I think Austin is great for eating vegan!! I was just there in October and there were actually too many restaurants to choose from.

Ithaca, NY (home of Cornell and Ithaca College), is probably one of the most Vegan friendly towns of which I can think. Not only is Cabbagetown restauarnt there (home of the Wings of Life Salad and the Cabbagetown cookbook) as well as Moosewood Restaurant (home of the Moosewood Cookbook series).<br><br><br><br>
Probably most amazing is the Ithaca Farmer's market. Believe it or not, you can get everything from fresh Goat's Milk (they milk the goats by hand) and cheese to many items grown using no fossil feuls (they plow using horses). Organic goes without saying. Veg*n is the norm, although you can by meat that is home raised, slaughtered and dressed (I would eat meat under that set of circumstances).<br><br><br><br>
Check it out: <a href="http://www.ithacamarket.com/" target="_blank">http://www.ithacamarket.com/</a><br><br><br><br>
It's really amazing. AND Ithaca is a really beautiful city, built on the tip of Cayuga lake (one of the five Finger Lakes) and surrounded by gorges and hills (there is a popular bumper sticker that says, "Ithaca Is Gorges". The NY Wine country is all around, and it's great to go to the Farmer's Market and then go wine tasting. Nice place to visit. I spent 18 years there and still go back once in a while.<br><br><br><br>
My brother lives in Hilo, HI, and he says that the Hilo farmer's market is amazing, too.<br><br><br><br>
I live in San Antonio, and Max Power is right. It is the 6th largest city in the country, but there are no Vegan restaurants, and only a couple of health food ones. I rely on Whole Foods and Central Market. Want good Mexican - no problem. Want something Vegan-big problem. It sucks.
