San Francisco has once again been named Best US City by Conde Nast Traveler readers...

San Francisco may not be the biggest US city or have the bright lights of New York, but it's once again captured the hearts of travellers, named the best US city in a survey by Conde Nast Traveler magazine.

Over 28,000 people voted in the annual Readers Choice Awards conducted by the magazine, which asked people to name their best cities, hotels, airlines, cruise lines and resorts.

"San Francisco, the No 1. US city, has also been No. 1 for 17 of the past 18 years," the magazine said in a statement.

Santa Fe, New Mexico, displaced San Francisco from the top of the list in 1992.

New York, which doesn't always make it into the list's top three, moved up one spot to be named second favorite US city after finishing third last year.

Charleston in South Carolina moved up from fifth spot to third in the rankings, a place it also held in 2005.

For the Americas overall, Vancouver, British Columbia, was bumped from the top spot it has held since 2005 and replaced by Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Vancouver had to settle for second place, with nearby Victoria, British Columbia, taking the third spot.
