Cleveland has quite a bit. Pittsburgh, Detroit, and Columbus are all major cities within about 100 Miles of Cleveland. We also have a national park just south of the city, Cedar Point (voted best amusement park in the world), a great lake with many beaches, Canada, the Allegheny Mountains, and even Toledo. Okay that last one is maybe not so special

The oldest living thing is the Bristlecone Pine, found in California and Nevada.

The Redwoods are the tallest trees, though.

Its a superb 100-mile radius in which to live, work and play.

It's got to be LA, right? Beach to one side, Mountains to the other, A valley to the Northwest and San Diego to the Southeast. Not to mention whatever is in LA proper.

Philadelphia, hands down. Its seriously the best contender for the #1 spot in terms of total offerings as well as variety.

NY and LA.

Only difference is that in LA even when you think you are in a remote wilderness area you will ALWAYS see more people. When you are in a NY remote area you have a better chance of being alone.
