Best Cities for Rooftop Dining
As regular readers of SacramentoRevealed.com well know, I like to check out the numerous articles rankings cities to see where (and if) Sacramento is ranked. I know these are “clickbait”, but I could not resist when I saw RoofGnome’s 2023’s Best Cities for Rooftop Dining.
According to its website, RoofGnome is a marketplace for multiple types of home services, connecting homeowners with local home services professionals.
RoofGnome considered 362 U.S. cities in its ranking. Key metrics included:
- Access Rank (# of roof top restaurants)
- Quality Rank (quality/consumer ratings)
- Climate Rank (hot, cold, rain, etc.)
Coming in 1st Place was New York, NY. At the bottom of the list was Auburn, AL. Where did Sacramento rank? Sacramento ranked #51. All told, 86 California cities appear on the list.
New York v. Sacramento Comparison
- New York – 85.21
- Sacramento – 48.17
- New York – 1
- Sacramento – 38
- New York – 2
- Sacramento – 135
- New York – 268
- Sacramento – 74
Well, at least we have better weather than New York! However, I for one would like to see more rooftop venues in Sacramento.
