Houston is one of the dirtiest cities in the country, according to a Travel and Leisure survey.

The annual America's Favorite Cities survey ranks cities on everything from attractiveness to residents' driving ability. Visitors to Houston say it has some of the best barbecue and luxury shopping in the country, but also thought it was the tenth dirtiest city in the nation.

Dallas is even dirtier, according to the survey, coming in at number seven. The dirtiest city in the country was New York City, followed by New Orleans and Baltimore.
