    No need to shoot you, Shotty. Just stay out of Sloppy Joe's. ;D
  3. Chicago. You get all the pluses of New York without the absolute gridlock. The lakefront, the shopping, the skyline, the food and all the culture, too. And now that they've added the gardens and parks downtown, it's got everything.

    San Francisco is a close second.
  4. Amen.

    My favorite city would either have to be LA or New York.

    He couldn't spell it, so he just went with the easy ones. Although, I'm pretty surprised that he could spell New York correctly.

    Possibly the single most accurate thing ever written on this site.

    I lived in Portland for a year. It has one of the greatest downtowns I've ever been in. It's a really wonderful city to visit. I hated living there, in part because it may have the highest percentage of complete assholes on earth. More precisely, assholes who think they are the most special people on earth.

    Anyway, my best city vote goes to Seattle by a pretty wide margin. San Diego and Santa Barbara are also on the list. If you're weighting it heavily toward scenery I'll throw in Sedona, AZ.

    I think Tucson's pretty overrated.

    My top 10, in order:

    1/Washington, DC
    2/New York
    3/San Francisco
    5/Boston (as long as I don't have to drive)
    6/Charleston, S.C.
    7/Raleigh, N.C.
    8/Cincinnati. Great place to live.
    9/Fort Worth

    Bottom 10:
    1/Philadelphia. Horrendous airport, only gets worse from there.
    4/Miami. Just really has a get-the-f***-outta-here vibe
    5/Oklahoma City
    8/Newark, N.J.
    9/Kansas City (except for the BBQ)
    10/New Orleans (pre-Katrina, too; never saw the appeal)

    My underrated 5:
    1/Greenville, S.C. Probably the coolest town of its size (150K-ish) anywhere.
    2/Ventura, Calif. Beautiful setting; all of the good about SoCal with little of the bad.
    3/Springfield, Mo. Am with Bubbler on this; you'd be surprised.
    4/Tulsa, Okla.
    5/San Antonio. Not sure if it's really underrated, but I think it's one of the coolest places I've ever been.

    That's a surprise to me.
