Cigars and cigar enthusiasts have their own brand of culture. Ask anyone who is into cigars seriously and they will tell you the same thing. If you are looking to experience this kind of culture, there are many cities in the States where you can go. Here are some of the top cities that are best for the cigar lover.
Las Vegas, Nevada
This should not come as a surprise. In Vegas, everything goes and everything can be had â€“ cigars included. Many cigar related organizations actually choose Vegas as their venue for various activities because of the permissive attitude in the city. Even if you are not part of any convention or special activity, merely visiting Vegas can give you the best cigar experience of your life. You never know, you could even get free cigars from some establishments.
Another â€œun-surpriseâ€ city on our list. You can walk the sidewalks and find some of the best cigars in the world. Visit Little Havana and get a taste of Cuba right in the United States. Of course, the tobacco is not grown in Cuba â€“ the embargo is still in effect after all, it is in fact grown in the Dominican Republic â€“ but it is the closest you can get to the â€œreal thing.â€
This other Florida city is famous for cigars and is actually home to some of the biggest and most popular cigar retailers. This is the city to go if you want to experience cigar history.
