    City, town, whatever it is I like it. Great fishing, fewer tourists than Key West and a more laid back vibe.

    Though the visit was relatively short - a weekend last fall -- I've gotta put Boston number one. Just awesome (Fenway certainly helped).

    Sorry...don't travel much. Hell, I've never been west of Ohio. Jesus, that's pathetic. :-\

    Glad to see some votes for Charleston, S.C. What a great fucking town. Only thing its missing is pro sports teams. I honestly don't think you can come up with a more perfect city than Charleston. It's got everything.

    Not much love for Philly on here, which is one of my personal faves.

    Others: Seattle, San Fran and Chicago.

    Overrated: Baltimore, New York City, Dallas, Atlanta.

    I was disappointed when Wachovia replaced First Union as the rights holder for the arena in Philly because the FU Center is the perfect name for a Philadelphia sports venue.

    What's so bad about Dayton? I would have pegged it as a better-than-average medium-sized city.

    I think this list begins and ends with Terre Haute.

    Is the Haute even big enough for consideration? And as long as you don't live on the south side of town the Haute fucking rules! ;)

    It's not for everyone, and I'm not really into anything having to do with the water (on an ocean; I prefer lakes), so Key West might seem like an odd choice. But I visited a couple times when I was younger and have family there now, so it's fun for me even without any of the tourist trappings.

    Two shirts from Key West
    "Key West: A sunny place for shady people"
    "Key West: Where the weird turn pro."

    Sort of sums it up.
