i believe from my detroit days I was told there's a totally nude strip joint right over the border. - i think that was the appeal for the men who went over there, lol.

1 New York..is it even a question

2 San Fran.. manhattan of the west coast

3 San Diego...Find me a city east of the sierra nevada with over a million people that is constantly being rated as the safest city in america..odly enough its right at the border too...Way to go SD

4 Boston..ugly people..ugly culture..beautiful architecture and history

5 Seatle...natural beauty

6 LA...oh how i love the madness

7 Vegas...if you can actually REMEMBER why you love vegas, you probably havent been there enough.. i don't even know anymore.. some how i find myself there everysummer and one summer with out vegas would not feel right

8Philly...historic, and east coast through and through, but different. Less eilitism than boston, and not so much" time is money" as new york is

9 Salt Lake City.. good outdoor activities, dry air, and you have to love the kind honest mormon folk

10 NEWOLANS...just plane whacky, i really hope they get the city cleaned up if its possible

1. Seattle (my favorite city since I was born)
2. Denver (kind of like Seattle, beautiful)
3. Portland, OR (smaller version of Seattle)
4. Atlanta (the city I grew up in)
5. San Francisco (wouldn't live there, but fun to visit)
6. Chicago (same as #5)
7. San Diego (despite all the negative things I've said about S.D., there are still a lot of worse cities, and it made #7 on my list)
8. Los Angeles and New York City-tie (exciting cities, but I don't know if I would live there)
9. Cincinnati (nice city to drive through)
10. Las Vegas (almost forgot that one, but I had a blast visiting there)

New Orleans is nice. Very nice. A city very rich in tradition and culture. A lot of people view it as being an undesirable place to live because of the crime, heat, hurricanes, and (unfortunate but true) the heavy black population.

In no order...

Maui(if we are counting the islands)
NYC
San Francisco
D.C.
St. Louis
Boston
Chicago
L.A.(mostly Malibu and a couple of other spots)
San Diego
Seattle
Houston
Milwaukee
Miami

....a little over ten. But I usually find something to like about most places I go...definitely more of a city person, and a water person in general, but like other natural beauty as well.

Oh. Well, we have those around here too, don't need to cross the border for that.

Nothing towards you. It reminded me of what too many people say about that city and I was set off. Alot of people write off a place if it isn't clean or if the economy is lousy. Didn't mean to rub you the wrong way at all.

Woah, hold up there chief. Did you just call Boston's citizens "ugly"? And did I also see you mention that they have an "ugly culture"? Why dont you mention that to them while youre there visiting. See how fast your west coast **** gets kicked back home.
