Little Rock polled 39 percent in public voting to take the title of America’s Next Top Foodie Destination 2020 from the Chicago-based Foodie Flashpacker blog.
The list of 33 “off-the-beaten-path destinations where travel bloggers say they have found some of the best food across the country” included Portland, Maine; Ridgeland, Miss.; Walla Walla, Wash.; Torrance and Costa Mesa, Calif.; Durango, Colo.; Huntsville, Ala.; and Naples, Fla.
Voting took place last week Dec. 16-22 at foodieflashpacker.com/americas-next-hottest-foodie-destination-2020.
The blog noted that Little Rock is home to the World Cheese Dip Championship.
