Denver for it's breathtaking vistas. It's been many years but I remember Roanoke, Virginia being quite nice, especially in the Autumn. Greensboro has lots of greenspace. Atlanta is getting pretty run-down, if you ask me; it needs more windows and scrap all the orange!

Chicago Midway International is well on its way; all the new areas are great. I think the renovations will be complete within a year or so. Besides, where else can you actually see into people's living rooms while taxiing?!

As much as I love my hometown of Atlanta, and as nice as ATL is, I don't think that it is particularly beautiful. Rather, it is functional and clean. In the US, I would have to agree on DIA. I think KLIA and DXB are probably far more beautiful places.

I'll have to be loyal and say MSP. The inside is very modern and nice! It's neat, right next to the Mississippi River and Fort Snelling, with a perfect view of Minneapolis to the NE.
Gr8slvrflt: You're right! I flew in and out of MDW on June 21st, it was amazing. I thought the approach was awesome to 31C, right over those houses! Taxi out to 4R was just as amazing! To our left, there was Kenny Auto Collision, you could throw a rock from the plane and hit it! Right next door were houses, and YES, you can see the living rooms! I saw a TV on! You basically taxi through a neighborhood!

My vote would have to go to MCO. First off, it is extremely airy and just inviting to the eye. Secondly, the monorail ride is second to none. You get a glimpse of the Florida scenery, and the ride is very pleasant. Also, the Hyatt inside the main terminal is one of the best hotels I have ever seen (it seems like the atrium area is like the lobby of a hotel).

ATL?!? Functional, yes. Big? Yes. Beautiful?!? I loved feeding the squirrels at the park at the Norfolk terminal. Trees, walking paths, very relaxing. Is it still there? Also, Munich with its cathedral feeling of marble steel and glass. So rich! And Martha's Vineyard, set in the middle of a state forest with bike trails all around it. And Provincetown, set in the dunes. Rustic and outdated terminals, but charming and great proximity to the planes.
ATL perfectly represents the "culture" of Atlanta. A sprawling uninspired functional mall from the 70's.

Maybe you should watch what you say about the culture of Atlanta, eh? I also think that ATL is a bit functional and not particularly beautiful. I must agree that much of Atlanta is a sprawling nightmare, but for those of us who actually live in the city of Atlanta as opposed to the metro area, it is actually a pretty nice place with a very high standard of living.

ATL? Are you guys kidding me?? "Most Beautiful Airport??" C'mon on!!
ATL is not even close. It is a big sprawling mess. There is nothing pretty about it, although airports with people movers do get extra kudos in my book. Maybe it is the most beautiful airport in Atlanta.
It is hard differentiate between what is a beautiful airport. To some, it is in the ease of movement or view from the gates (LAS, SAN and AMS come to mind). To others, it might be the location itself (St. Maarten, HNL or Corfu are good examples - you see where I am going!). Or it might be the unique architecture. Denver's teepee design or some of the new Asian airports definitely fit this bill.
My vote: SLC. Easy to use airport, nice friendly folks, and best of all is that scenery. Now if only they could add some teepees!
