My ranking is SF then Philly then Boston.

Prefer each city in that order overall. I know many people love Boston but I find it extremely overrated.

Maybe it's the nightlife but it's largely void and disappointing for a city of its stature. Boston takes itself too seriously people wise and has benefited from its sports teams exposure of winning.
Lets get real man, we live in the US, our nightlife sucks for the most part including Philly. It just may suck a little less than Boston's.

As far as people are concerned it depends on what type of circles you run in. What type of people in Boston did you used to hang out with? Which neighborhoods did you spend the majority of your time in? People are basically the same everywhere I have ended up in this world, some suck, some dont, thats life.

But then again, I'm sure that many of the people who are making SF important were educated in Boston.

Why doesn't everyone seem to hate on Boston on City Data, it was probably my favorite city I ever lived in. I don't why don't like it, the only downsize about it was the cost of living. I kinda like the weather, I like four seasons and the winters were a bit rough its a great college town. I loved going to college/ undergrad in Boston.
