Las Vegas has the most interesting skyline out of the bunch.

I'm going to go with Seattle, as it's got the best mix of highrise skyscrapers, setting, and increased dense residential towers around downtown of West Coast cities IMO.

Also Dallas is closer to the Atlantic Coast than it is to the Pacific Coast. Athough it's practically in the middle of the country...

I only added Dallas because I had already picked 10 poll questions, and needed 10 cities to fill it out. Lol

This is my thought as well. Both are very scenic in their physical settings. On a clear day Seattle is very gorgeous looking east towards Rainier. San Francisco looks great from Treasure Island with the suspension section of the Bay Bridge in view, plus there's been a lot of high rise condo construction South of Market that's added to the vertical component (although the Financial District is kind of stalled out).

San Francisco has the most impressive skyline in person, and its not close.


Dallas is not western or anywhere near the Pacific coast

If you live in the West skylines don't matter because we have mountains and natural scenery. People in the Midwest make a big deal out of skylines because there's nothing else on the horizon to look at.
