Favorite U.S. City And Why

Sat Jul 21, 2001 1:24 pm


For me, it's definitely San Diego. Why? Sun, ocean, palm trees, and a laid back attitude.

So what are yours?

I'd have to say:

1. Clearwater, FL. I just love Florida, and I have family there.

2. Las Vegas, NV. Fun, Fun, Fun ALL NIGHT LONG!

3. Minneapolis, MN. Why? NW headquarters!

Terrell, Texas. The first time I was there, I knew I was home. Strange this is I live 1000 miles from there.

I have visited almost all of America's major cities and based on first impressions, I would be happy to live in Denver, Phoenix, Dallas, Austin, Milwaukee and Orlando. I must say, I have never been to San Diego (I know I would like it), New Orleans, San Francisco, Houston, or San Antonio.

But I love where I live now (Fort Wayne, Indiana - pop: 215,000) and would hate to leave.

San Francisco/Bay Area, hands down. It's got everything: both geographic & architectual beauty, cultural and economic strength, and a great airport (which is always a plus, if not a necessity Big grin). Even though I live there, I'd probably pick San Diego as my second-favorite city, with Chicago coming in third.

1. Chicago - love it since my first visit. The city view from the Shedd Aquarium is amazing. Love the aircrafts on approach to O'hare while driving down I-90 towards the city.

2. Boston - love the Back Bay area, Newbury St, Copley Square, Boston Common. Missed walking my brother's dog on the Charles river walk.

3. San Francisco - lovely views, interesting neighborhoods, interesting streets.

1) Jacksonville, FL- I have a LOT of family there (a part of the town, Wesconnett, was named after three men, named West, Connors, and Turknett, my great grandma's maiden name is Turknett) and I look forward to going there every year.

2) Atlanta, GA- What can I say, I just like southern cities. I have some family there as well, and its home to Delta.

3) Las Vegas, NV- For reasons mentioned above.

San Francisco, CA. I live here. It's a great city with lots of culture, views, layout and people.

Hilo , Hawaii. In the most beautiful part of the country with the nicest people I have ever meet in the entire U.S. No new resorts which is a good thing! No aggresive advertisments from the mainland.  Smile

Duluth , Minnesota. Working class liberal city that is very affordable. Four seasons, coastal town, nice people, close to Canada and Northwest flies there.  Big thumbs up


Gary , Indiana. My home town. The only U.S. city over 100,000 pop. without a Starbucks!  Big thumbs up

Atlanta, GA and Jacksonville, FL.

No contest. I live in the South, I am a true Southerner, and I never want to leave!

Jacksonville is very familiar to me - I drive thru it every time I go to college (from Tallahassee to Daytona Beach) and I spend a lot of time there as it's only about 90 miles from Daytona... decent city, the nicest people you'll find ANYWHERE outside of the FL Panhandle, and the class to boot.

Atlanta speaks for itself really.

Failing that, I'd never say no to Savannah or Charleston, either...

Boston - because it appeared to be the most European one of the cities I visited.

Yeah, Boston is great. I was in Copley/Back Bay yesterday. But I just like San Diego better.

The only city that I have visited lately and remembered what it's like is Kansas City. It was a very nice city, but didn't look as good as some of the cities I've flown or driven through. One city I really liked flying though was Seattle. I hear many good things about it. There is wonderful scenery there with all the trees and mountains. The downtown area looks kinda nice, too.

Funny comments, people. Anyway, why NYC felt like Moscow?

- Tons of Russians.
- Big city.
- Lots of things to do.
- Great subway system and airports.

Great place, maybe I'll move there some day.

Pittsburgh

A big city with small town feel, has four distinct seasons, tons of recreational opportunities, and everyone I know who has left to other cities has told me that they all suck compared to pittsburgh. It has an excellent airport too. lol
