I've never been, but a lot of people have said Denver was pretty clean.
Yes, Denver is clean.

How do some of the southern cities stack up? I haven't heard them mentioned.

Nashville?
Memphis?
Atlanta?
Charlotte?
Houston?
Dallas?
Tampa?

It really depends. Atlanta is drop-dead gorgeous in parts of the core, and slightly to pretty gritty in other areas.

The same can be said for Charlotte, Nashville & Tampa. I would say Charlotte has the cleanest, most tidy Downtown (Uptown there) at this point.

I can't speak to Dallas or Houston, and Memphis is a no.

Minneapolis and Seattle.

San Diego is largely suburban in my mind, so the touristy areas naturally should come off as clean given it's built environment. Downtown SD seemed really dead to me except for clubbing hours at the Gaslamp District. Downtown SD is quite littered with homeless just like any West Coast city.

Agreed, but some of the surrounding adjacent neighborhoods are fantastic. And right Downtown the newish Ballpark/East Village area around Petco Field is turning out pretty nicely, as is Italian Village. I have high hopes for the new park/redevelopment of Horton Plaza as well. San Diego has fantastic bones.

And like Seattle, they still have Downtown Department Stores.

Cities, my good sir, not suburbs that happen to have office parks. Literally no one even walks in Irvine. It's a pedestrian wasteland with very pretty shopping malls.
