10 American Cities That Are Paradise For Vegetarians

There are many benefits to being a vegetarian, but there are some issues that come with it. Eating at a friend’s house, getting enough protein, getting numerous questions about your lifestyle, and eating out can all be factors when it comes to your vegetarian lifestyle.

With some locations, it can be a nightmare to live a meatless lifestyle, but there are some that can be a total paradise. We’ve narrowed it down to 10 cities in America where it’s a breeze to be vegetarian.

1. Portland, Oregon

Portland, OR

    This city has a long list of vegetarian and vegan-friendly establishments, from bed-and-breakfasts to a-la-carte restaurants.
