I wouldn't call it a city, though. lol
No, I would call it a very nice suburb in Westchester County, not a city really.

Ok, here we go:

1) San Francisco, CA
2) Boston, MA
3) New York, NY
4) Ithaca, NY
5) Seattle, WA
6) Santa Fe, NM
7) Portland, OR
8) Bennington, VT
9) Washington, DC
10) Las Vegas, NV (for fun

And if you open it up to North America, I'd also include Vancouver as #1 and Montreal as #4 after San Fran and Boston. Vancouver would actually remain at #1 on my list even globally...

Hell, you're probably a more vocal and efficacious force for Scran-Barre than the Chamber of flippin' Commerce and the Tourism Bureau combined.

Now, now, now...don't poo-poo our great Chamber officials who succeed in bringing us thousands of $8/hr. distribution center jobs for our college gradutes! We should be thankful for their accomplishments; they truly are ASSets to the metro! Just think of where ScranBarre would be without them; we might have to contend with all sorts of horrors like family-sustaining career opportunities, urban growth boundaries, a burgeoning arts/cultural community, liberals, etc. AHHHHHH!!!

I know. But Santa Clarita is such a great place I just could not leave it off this list.

1. El Paso - best weather around / great food / great scenery / great culture / distinct

2. Albuquerque - [see El Paso, with better scenery and culture and slightly worse weather]

3. Milwaukee - my hometown and current residence / perfect-sized city / great uniqueness and vibe / beautiful lakefront setting

4. Tucson - [see El Paso with worse weather (too hot)]

5. San Antonio - just a tremendous US city / great sized city / Riverwalk / history / great weather

6. Kansas City - horribly underrated US city / great food / good sized city / sports city / unique flavor

7. San Diego - weather, beaches, and ocean / clean / safe / expenses and congestion are the only things that prevent it from top of the list

8. Sacramento - underrated city / great weather / good size

9. Orlando - great weather / good central FL location

10. Dallas - great cost of housing and living / good year-round climate

Honorable...

11. Denver - mountains and sunshine / lots of fun things to do / friendly people

12. Salt Lake City - underrated city with beautiful mountains and sunny weather / good sized city

Agreed. The city council regulars prove my point. Most of them sound like this:

"I don't want taxes."
"Gimme money."
"I don't want taxes."
"Gimme money."
"I don't want taxes."
"Gimme money."



If I hear one more person mention "don't want taxes" and "want free stuff" in the same sentence again, I might just have to drop-kick someone right at the podium! Don't they realize how hypocritical and uneducated they sound?
