For me these cities are underrated
1. Eugene Oregon - nice size city, tons of young smart people and growing economy and area. Very clean and crime in low.

2. Tacoma Washington - The crime is waayyy waayyy overstated. It has tons of culture and great food. yes it is grity but really it is a nice and underrated city.

3. Pittsburgh Pennsylvania - Visit here once and I say it is clean and for a industrial city it is forward thinking. More people should consider moving there because I think it is rather nice.

4. Philadelphia Pennsylvania - I think it gets too much of a bad name. Me it for being a large city it is really charming.

5. Tampa Florida - Growing economy and everything. However it never gets any love. It is always Miami but never Tampa.

Eugene is fairly small. Nothing there to really make it "underrated".

Tacoma is the 15th largest metro in the US, but is in a rural state, therefore, not creating much of a prominent name.

Neither Pittsburgh or Philadelphia are underrated IMO, especially Philly.

Tampa, despite having almost 5M+ metro, has recently became very "trashy" and lacking development, ect.

Philadelphia is certainly underrated in real life.... maybe not on this forum, but certainly in real life. I grew up in a nearby suburb of Philadelphia and had NO intentions of moving here until I actually came here for school. Now I will never leave. It is the same for most people in the area. Most suburbanites always say "Philadelphia??... why not NYC??"... it isn't until they actually come and visit Philadelphia when they say "wow this place is awesome.".. and "NYC is too expensive, I'm moving to Philadelphia."

So yes, it is extremely underrated... even down to the people who live in the area.

Quebec City: Most European feeling city in North America, an architectural and cultural treasure.

Omaha: One of my favorite river cities full of charm, a great downtown, and nice parks along the Missouri River. Omaha had the best steak in the universe.

May I also add Ottawa. Toronto and Montreal are the big brothers but Ottawa is a good mix of everything

Portland Maine and Milwaulkee are places that no one ever hears about but my experience with them is "who knew!" "Great towns!"
