Kim Kardashian West’s fame has led her to many different places. She’s made appearances in cities all across the United States, and her wealth has allowed her to take exotic vacations in different parts of the world. But there is one city that Kardashian West has always gravitated toward — and one of the reasons she loves it so much is quite surprising.

Kim Kardashian West has traveled to more places than we can imagine

Kardashian West’s busy career has led her to many different countries. Plus, with so much money, she definitely spoils herself with a nice vacation now and then. Each year, the Kardashian-Jenners take an extravagant family trip; they usually visit somewhere exotic, and it’s documented on the show. But Kardashian West’s career has taken her to many different cities around the United States, including New York and Miami. And she recently visited Armenia, the country of her ancestors, to better educate her children on where they come from.

New York City has always been close to her heart

Kardashian West has loved New York since she was young. When she and her sisters were running their clothing line, Dash, New York was one of the first places they thought of when deciding to expand their store locations. Kardashian West spent an extended amount of time in the city when she and Kourtney filmed Kourtney and Kim Take New York for E! back in 2011 and 2012. Though she doesn’t spend as much time there these days now that she’s a mother of four, New York is still one of her favorite cities to visit. And there is one bizarre reason why she loves the city so much.

Kardashian West loves New York City for its ice cream

Kardashian West wakes up at 5:30 a.m. every morning to squeeze in a 90-minute workout before her busy day, but that doesn’t stop her from enjoying a sweet treat when she’s traveling. And one surprising reason she loves New York City is because of its ice cream. Kardashian West has raved about one specific ice cream cone she always orders when visiting the Big Apple: a vanilla cone dipped in chocolate and coated in rainbow sprinkles. Every time she goes to New York, she posts a photo of the ice cream cone to her Instagram story.

Fans have called for her to move to the Big Apple

Of course, the ice cream isn’t the only reason Kardashian West loves New York. She loves the vibe and the atmosphere as well, plus it’s a nice change from spending most of her time near Los Angeles. And whenever Kardashian West visits, fans always call for her to relocate permanently to New York. Her New York fans love to leave comments on her posts encouraging her to plant roots here. However, it doesn’t look like Kardashian West will be making a big move anytime soon. She’s called California home for her whole life, and she and her husband, Kanye West, also spend a good amount of time at their vacation property in Wyoming. But she still relishes in the New York experience every time she visits.
