Pittsburgh. I love San Fran, but Pittsburgh has more of a calm and home feeling to it. San Fran is a rat race. It was one of the best cities I ever been too, but I still would rather live in Pittsburgh.

I have never lived in San Francisco, but I have not liked living in Pittsburgh, at all.

San Francisco- better architecture, better culture, more to do, better weather, proximity to ocean, Napa Valley, Lake Tahoe, Marin County, more educated populace. Is this thread serious? People who "fear" the earthquakes that are a nonfactor to people who actually live in SF are laughable. The humidity of the east coast coupled with cold winters versus the marine dry climate of SF? Um, really hard decision to make- not. What's next Hawaii versus Cleveland? New York City versus Oklahamo City? Get real.

That's true...why do people use the possibility (or should I say probability) of earthquakes as a detractor? It's ridiculous. Life is full of risks, and you risk your safety every day (walking, driving, working, etc...). If your time is up, your time is up.

Obviously, I would choose San Francisco, but I agree Pittsburgh is beautiful and underrated.

I would rather live in Oklahoma City than New York City! And honestly, even Cleveland vs. Hawaii I'd have to think about! Physical beauty and weather may be overrated when it comes to picking a place to live. It's nice to live in a place where you're not stressed about making your mortgage payment each month!

Gotcha. I might still choose Pittsburgh and use all the money I'm saving to travel a lot or buy a second home somewhere! I imagine Pittsburgh is friendlier than San Fran and less crowded. Plus, Pittsburgh is closer to family and friends for me, and that's important for me. But San Fran has always seemed like a great city....Hmmmm....I don't think it's an obvious choice as some people are saying!

And let's not forget where Warren Buffet lives...Omaha, NE! Now there's a guy, who could BUY San Francisco.
