One of the best parts of traveling is trying out the local cuisine. If you're traveling in the United States, there are 10 cities that have been found to have the best food. According to WalletHub's new study, the Pacific Northwest should definitely be on all foodies' radars.

In order to determine the best foodie cities, WalletHub compared 182 cities across two key dimensions, “Affordability” and “Diversity, Accessibility & Quality.” WalletHub then evaluated those dimensions using 30 relevant metrics, including coffee shops per capita, restaurants per capita and more. Each metric was graded on a 100-point scale, with a score of 100 representing the most favorable conditions and costs for foodies. After each city's overall score was calculated, WalletHub was able to determine which U.S. cities are best for foodies. Here are the results.

Top 10 Foodie Cities in the United States:
