Sacramento for me. Nice leafy streetcar suburban aesthetic, cute Victorians, Midtown looks like a nice urban enclave, extremely diverse, underrated food scene, Lake Tahoe and the Bay Area in close proximity, got a few family members out there.

Richmond, VA or Portland, OR?

Portland. Richmond seems pretty cool, nice downtown and hipster vibe, but Portland would at least allow for carless living.

Portland, OR or Portland, ME?

I think one would be able to go without a car at least in Richmond's core neighborhoods such as The Fan, Jackson Ward, Carytown, Museum District, Downtown, etc.

I could probably survive in those parts of Richmond without a car, but I think I'd really want to have one there. It's not like a big city where owning a car is a hassle and living car-free is easier than having one.

In my 30s (now), Portland, Ore. When I retire, Portland, Me.

Baton Rouge, La. or Des Moines, Ia.

Portland, Oregon. It is much larger, more diverse and the winters are a lot more easy to take than in Maine. Don't get me wrong, Portland, ME is nice.. it's a friendly and touristy waterfront haven with a lot of restaurants and coffee shops. Reminds me of a bed & breakfast town in New England. But Portland, OR is a better place to live, at least IMO.

Tampa or Raleigh?

San Antonio. Just a fun/underrated city

San Diego or Seattle?

Agreed. The neighborhoods within the city core are very walkable and the people who live there regularly use city transportation to get around, especially for those who work in downtown. Richmond often gets overlooked but the city is very dense, hip, diverse and walkable. There are blocks of row houses that extend from Carytown, The Fan District into the industrial areas in the east side. Like Portland or Austin, Richmond most definitely has its fair share of hipsters and a yuppy transient population. It is truly an underrated city.

Since you were ignored :

Baton Rouge, I don't know much about either other than they are state capitals but LA interests me more than IA. I haven't a clue which one I would personally prefer to live in.

Oooh tough one, I love both and would be happy living in either but I'll go with Seattle. I have a lot of experience with both but my sister lived in Seattle for ~10 years so I probably have more practical experience there. Plus when I was younger Seattle was probably my second favorite city.

Sacramento, CA or Austin, TX?
