We’ve been to San Francisco, to Vegas, to Los Angeles, went up north and over the border, tried vegan places in Canada... now it’s time for us to head back and have a look at some of the best states for vegans in the US :)

Best Vegan-Friendly Destinations in the USA

There are quite a few vegan friendly destinations out there, but which ones should you go to? Let’s take a look at the top four and why they should be on your list of places to travel this year! Here are the best vegan-friendly destinations in the United States.

1. San Francisco, California

San Francisco (where we've been before) is one of America’s most vegan-friendly cities. Not only does it have a huge following in terms of culinary culture, but also for being green. In fact, PETA ranks San Francisco as having a score of 71/100 for being vegan friendly, which is what we like to call pretty darn awesome!

So if you’re planning a trip out west, San Fran should be on your list. And one of our favourite restaurants there? Millennium Restaurant.

2. Portland, Oregon

Portland, Oregon, has a plethora of great vegan restaurants. The best, though is Farm Spirit, with their range of tasty plant-based meals inspired by local farmers and seasonal produce.

From creative to traditional cuisine - they have it all! Don’t forget to order a side of homemade fries.

3. New York City, New York

From vegan fast food restaurants to hidden-gem restaurants, there’s no shortage of vegan dining options in New York City (one of my first trips). Here are a few favourites: Blossom Restaurant on 6th Avenue (website) is a 100% vegan restaurant serving organic, locally sourced meals like tofu gyros and tempeh reuben sandwiches.
