    As someone who grew up as a child there, I have fond memories. And I've heard it's only gotten better since then. Downtown and Mount Washington are special places to me. It's been damn near 15 years since I've been back. Too long, really.

    Also, I would vouch for Kansas City and Chicago.

    As for Canada, give me Quebec and St. Andrews.

    Philly's inferiority complex re New York colors the town's psychology, incurably.

    Philly and Boston are more alike than either care to acknowledge.

    Have spent a good deal of time in all three places. Amongst them, NYC rules, but God help you if you're not flush.

    Mr Pappy,

    When in Kingston, I recommend the juice bar recently opened by, uh, David Frost.

    YHS, etc

    If you love the outdoors and don't mind a little traffic, the area in and around Branson is great.

    Pallister's driven to The Cell on the clusterfuck that is the Dan Ryan Expressway. He knows about traffic.

    True. I know all about big-city traffic, but relative to the area, it gets pretty bad when tourist season is in full swing.

    EDIT: Last time I went to the Cell, it took me and my brother an hour and 45 minutes to go roughly 12 miles BEFORE rush hour started.

    So true. I love both places, but it's amazing how many Portland-ers (-ites?) think their shit doesn't stink.

    Still, it would make my list. Easily.

    1. Portland, Ore.
    2. St. Paul, Minn.
    3. Boulder, Colo.
    4. Charlottesville, Va.
    5. San Francisco, Calif.
    6. Bulington, Vermont.

    Places where I have spent too much time, and would prefer not to go back:

    1. Houston, Texas
    2. Los Angeles, Calif.
    3. Atlanta, Georgia.
    4. Bismark, N.D.
    5. The state of New Jersey.
