If you thought Denver would be ranked as the rudest city in Colorado, think again. A much smaller city takes the spot and is one of the rudest in the country.In Travel and Leisure's latest study done across the country to find the rudest regions, Colorado Springs takes the number nine spot nationally and number one throughout the state.

Who does Colorado Springs beat to climb this spot?

Bigger metropolitan areas such as Detroit, Las Vegas, and Providence. And when people believe you are ruder than Detroit, you must need a lesson in politeness.

The research included results from quality of life, walkability of a city, if it feels safe, and how cordial the residents are.

Any cities with a population base of more than 100,000 people were included in the study.

It wasn't all doom and gloom for Colorado Springs. The people that were surveyed were impressed with the culture of the city, along with the entertainment value of the region.
