NYC
I drive to most destinations. Chicago and Houston were bad enough, driving in NYC is something I don't think I'd care for at all.
Might fly there one day just to see what all the fuss is about, but then I don't really care for big cities, so... might not.

Houston. No family or friends there, and haven't had any project work in the area. Would like to visit though.

Out of the cities on the list I have not been to a few actually but the one I would LEAST like to visit is Houston. It just doesn't offer any appeal to me and seems boring IMO.

The only one I haven't been to is Miami. No particular reason, my travels just haven't taken me there yet.

Kind of an old thread, but I've just got to say that I think New Yorkers get a really bad and totally underserved rap. I've been there eight times (it's my favorite US destination) and I always, always, always run into more considerate, helpful people than jerks.

I've only been to Atlanta and Chicago on plane stops and I actually do really want to be able to visit these cities especially Chicago. I do want to see the Lake Michigan shoreline from ground level and visit the Sears Tower (and though I've seen these from the air). Atlanta seems like it has fewer attractions than Chicago but if I have a chance to visit I definitely would, especially with the Coca Cola factory and the Olympic stadium there. Too bad most of Atlanta was burned to the ground and pillaged by the Yankee soldiers during the war. I hear its the least Southern of the Southern cities.

Ive been to Houston as a kid but don't remember. It would be nice to visit NASA there. I think Houston and Dallas have fewer famous landmarks though they have amazing skylines and I like the feel of both since they are nice and modern and not as dense as many older US cities. Reunion Tower in Dallas is nice.
