    Holycrap. I won't be veering off 91 towards Holyoke to find a place to take a leak.

    Clearly more dangerous than lesbians in suburu's with volley ball sized whakers.

    Five favorite baseball cities:
    St. Louis

    Honorable mention, baseball or not (small cities included):

    Oklahoma City
    Kansas City (try Arthur Bryant's)
    Dubuque, Iowa (and yes, get to Galena!)
    New Orleans
    New York

    That's only a few recommendations.

    Wow, aside from Denver those are 4 of the bottom 6-7 in my book. Although I'm not sure exactly what criteria you're using for "baseball cities" since some of the others you picked also have baseball.

    Beyond the product on the field, have you been to a game in Denver?

    Santa Fe has been mentioned already right? A great town. Never made it to Taos, but spent a week in October cruising the Southwest. El Paso, Cortez, Colorado, Amarillo, White Sands NM and SF. Amazing scenery. The ultimate Route 66 trip. Even made it to Four Corners and Monument Valley for a spell before heading to a wedding in Tucson.

    We lived 100 yards from the Fountain of Youth -- the water is indeed funky when the weather is warm, something about the line it's on (yes it's city water -- SPOILERS!).

    • I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Key West. That can be (and has been) a blast for a few days, though I doubt I'd want to actually live there.
    • Loved, loved, loved my time in Charleston. Really neat city with all kinds of things to do.
    • Everyone should see New Orleans at least once. It's in many ways decadent, and it smells in the morning. But what a 24-hour party.
    • A three-day trip to Watkins Glen, N.y. Spend one day going up one side of the middle "finger" and hit every winery. Then spend the second day going up the other side of the middle "finger" and hit every winery.
    • A sleeper is Sanibel and Captiva, off Fort Myers. A little piece of paradise with great little dives and super eating.

    Wife considers Sanibel heaven on Earth. Almost got married there.
    Lot of fun places to drink.
    I can do without the $7 toll to cross the bridge, though.

    New Orleans is a 3 day city at most but one like no other. It should be near the
    top of everyone's must see city list.

    Hey, the criteria was cities. Never said anything about the teams. ;)

    And yes. Been to Coors three times.

    A little disappointed it took until Page 2 for someone to say Tahoe.

    Also, all of these are great towns for an ass-whippin'.
