Must-visit U.S. cities

    Assembling a list of places we want to visit, even for a weekend, the next few years/decades. Due to sports writing, I've been fortunate to visit a lot of places, but my wife and I have only really been to San Francisco and Hawaii (Maui) together. She's been to Seattle (as have I) separately, and we've also both been to D.C. Not that we won't end up in one of those places again, but I want to hit some places that either one or the other have not been:

    For starters:

    New Orleans
    New York City
    Portland (Oregon)

    Where else is awesome?

    We actually stayed in Berkeley when we took a vacation to San Francisco/Bay Area. We were awakened by an earthquake. I remember that.

    I forgot that we've also been to Minneapolis together.

    I know you are looking for cities, but I really like to visit National Parks.

    Minneapolis is way underrated. If you avoid going in the winter, it's a great city.

    I love New York City, but it's a tough place to travel when you have young kids.

    Baltimore. Underrated eating town.

    I don't particularly care for Las Vegas, but if you've never been there you obviously need to go at least once.

    Santa Fe
    Kansas City
    Charleston W.V.
    Newport, R.I.

    On my 50 states by 50 list, I'm up to 35 or 36 states but I hadn't really thought about cities to visit.

    Don't ever go to Baton Rouge. It's a dump

    Dallas has never done much for me either. Just seems like a lot of urban

    Charleston has a cool vibe as does Providence but probably not worth
    stand alone trips.

    I'm also a big fan of Phoenix/ Scottsdale area.
