I would want to live in Seattle because I love architecture and I love being near large bodies of water (i.e. the coasts or the Great Lakes). Seattle offers those two for me - a great skyline and the Puget Sound/Lake Washington flanking the city center. Also the tolerant ideas of the people is enticing.

Salt Lake City is my least favorite. Land locked and very conservative - probably socially and politically the least tolerant of the cities being compared in the list.

Denver. Not a fan of the climate of the PNW, and SLC just doesn't do anything for me.

I chose Portland. I think Oregon is the most beautiful state in the nation. And the Portland metro is not too overwhelming and crowded as are Seattle and Denver. SLC is beautiful, but too conservative for me in general.

I'd pick Detroit over Salt Lake. SLC (and Utah) gives me the creeps. Out of the four, I'd pick Portland; immensely walkable town with an incredible brew-pub scene, great dining, and, of course, Powell's. And Voodoo donuts.

Went with Seattle. Just recently took a trip there because my fiance and I are considering moving to the Seattle area (closer to family, better job market). That being said, SLC and Denver are on our list of potential future homes too, but if I had to pick one it'd be Seattle.

Live in Seattle. Bigger of the cities, great quality of life for its size. Definitely the pick for me. Yes, I'm biased.

Personally I would choose Denver out of those options. However, they are all great cities.

Denver, because it's sunny. I live in Ohio where it's cloudy all the time.

I'd still love to visit Seattle and Portland. I don't know much about Salt Lake City.
