Uh, well apparently you can only vote for one option so I chose none.

Dallas, Houston and Miami are cities I have never been to for the same reasons: I can't afford it, I don't have the time nor reasons to go there. In my experience with NYC, nobody is going to know you are from the south unless you shout about it or your accent is particularly thick. I've found that I blended in pretty well even though I was from the midwest. Rudeness was apparent on some occasions but mostly people just mind their own business. It's not my favorite city by a long shot but the rudeness, in my personal experience, isn't as bad as people make it out to be.

Meanwhile, Chicago always finds ways to make me angry and Atlanta was a city I was only in briefly: the weather was bad and the air quality was low although I don't think that's regular. I don't have a strong opinion on it.

Chicago, Dallas, Atlanta and Miami because my tour itinery didn't pass through those cities. I've only really passed through the suburbs of Houston and saw the skyline. So I've only really been to New York but I would be keen to visit the others. They aren't high on my priority list, though.

Not in my experience, and I'm a native Atlantan that for years lived in NYC (Brooklyn Heights). I would receive gentle ribbing about my 'roots' once in a while, but generally New Yorkers were great to me.
I would run into Southern expats all the time up there. There are more in NYC than you might think.

Have been to all of them several times and lived in them ... Umm... I've explored Dallas the least, no particular reason why, just haven't had the desire to explore it and it's been farthest away from the others. It's probably the least interesting to me from a tourist standpoint. Ft. Worth actually might be a bit more interest for a visitor looking to see something unique.

I've only visited half the cities on that list, so I didn't vote because I could only choose one. I've never been to Dallas or Miami, and my only experience with Houston was when I had to switch planes on my way to Seattle. To be honest I don't really have much desire to visit any of those places. I guess I would if someone offered me free trip, but with my own money there are many other places that would come to mind first.

New York City, Chicago and Atlanta. No reason; I just haven't been to these places.

I haven't been to Dallas and Chicago, but I've been in Chicago's airport, so I voted Dallas. I've been to Miami, Atlanta, and NYC for vacation and Houston for a family reunion. I've enjoyed all those cities and would go to all of them again. I plan on going to Chicago either next year or the year after next. I don't plan on going to Dallas anytime soon. It just doesn't interest me and I there's no reason making me want to go there.

Its interesting, and will be more interesting, to find out that people have such an opinion about places that they have never been to. I find it absurd that someone can hold an opinion about Atlanta (one of the most bashed cities on here) and have never been here to experience the city.
