Here's a four way architecture battle.

4 cities in the South (census-defined), each known for their different style. French-Spanish in NOLA, Victorian in Richmond, Georgian in Washington and Arto-Deco.

It will probably depend on your personal preference for style, but which is your pic?

In Washington, D.C., the most obvious architecture to tourists would be neo-classical and Greek revival architecture: The White House, U.S. Capitol Building, Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson Memorial, Supreme Court, museum buildings and others. In addition, there's a mix of many styles in the city including Victorian, Romanesque, Gothic, Norman, Palladian, French second empire, Egyptian, etc.

I'd probably have to go with D.C. or maybe Richmond V.A., Im a sucker for Victorian row houses. By the way there are so many other cities that should probably be in this list over Miami San Fracisco,Charleston S.C., Savannah G.A. ect.. no offense to Miami.
