10: San Antonio

San Antonio often ranks as one of the "friendliest cities" in America, so it's no surprise to see it on Airbnb's most hospitable list. Airbnb Superhost Lizzie says she makes guests to her Urban Casa feel welcome by remembering the little details they share about their trip when booking. "If they're celebrating a birthday or anniversary, we're sure to have a homemade cake and celebration sign waiting for them," she says. "If they're traveling with kids, toys and crafts unique to the kiddos' ages can be a lifesaver. (As parents, we've been there!) And with a handful of universities nearby, we have a lot of families in town to drop off their students. In those cases, a San Antonio souvenir (and lots of tissues!) are in order."

9: Dallas

Hospitality and great food go hand-in-hand. With more restaurants per capita than New York City, Dallas' food scene definitely can't hurt its ranking as one of Airbnb's most hospitable cities.

The Holy City epitomizes Southern charm and Southern hospitality. The city itself offers amazing food, historic architecture and a bustling nightlife, and a beach day at Folly Beach or Sullivan's Island is just a few minutes away.

7: Austin

They say everything's bigger in Texas, and that may be true of the spirit of hospitality because Austin is the third city in Texas to make the list. Airbnb actually noted that the Lone Star State has seen a 77 percent uptick in Airbnb guest arrivals across the state from 2017 to 2018.
