I have been in every city in the U.S. at least once except for Omaha, Boise and the states of Washington, Arizona and New Mexico. And I don't mean the airport. My visits usually last at least 24 hours if not longer.

Seem like I put Dallas in the right spot, as far as top city on the poll because I had a feeling that people didn't know much about this city.Thats why it is good to know if people haven't been to cities that you know about and you can let them know about that location.Dallas is overrated in some people oppinon, who have never been there,underrated for people who have been there and rated correctly when it come to economical facts.There is other cities as well that don't get the credit that is due because of he say/she say oppinons.Every city isn't mean't for each individual,you just have to find out on your on.

Not sure what it explains considering I've never actually spoke on the amenities or offerings of these cities. I speak about them, but in sense where it's more factual and statistical.

I havent been to Chicago because I've never been out to the mid-west for any reason. I've been to Dallas once, NY twice, Houston, Miami, and Atlanta a bazillion times...but not Chicago. It's next on my list. I'm going there for my birthday in December...why u ask? because I've always wanted hypothermia for my birthday lol

I've said it since day 1 I've never been to Atlanta and I've never bashed Atlanta. Quote one post where I've actually bashed Atlanta; the most I say about anything that relates to Atlanta is its importance. I don't have to visit to know what that's about.

Of course they/we/me/you can define "real city" however we see fit. Why not? And who cares what anyone else thinks? Lots of people don't consider LA a "real city" and I couldn't care less.

It's a common occurrence on C-D, believe me.
