Denver, CO or St. Louis, MO ?
Denver. St. Louis has some cool architecture and a great history, but the city has been plagued by urban decay, social issues and racial strife.

Albert Lea, MN or Raton, NM?

Have you ever been to Queens? Not to say it can't be crowded in places, but Queens is much less crowded on average than Manhattan. I think people often just go to Manhattan and assume the entirety of NYC is like that, but it's not. Queens is basically the same population as Houston as well. Tons of stuff there just in and of itself, not to mention the areas where the other almost 7 million people of NYC live.

No worries. Just fun to pick between two cities, usually with limited info at our disposal. Sometimes more when it is cities that are close to home. Have never been to Queens. I did know Manhattan was most crowded borough. Thanks for the info!

Albert Lea, MN

Puts me about 100-120 miles from some friends/relatives in MN/western WI. About 95 miles to Minneapolis for pro sports/plenty more to do. Also am familiar with MN having grown up there. Don't know anyone in New Mexico. COL reasonable in both places. Would probably not like hot summers in Raton. Albert Lea is a little larger (18,000 vs. 7,000). Has several lakes nearby. Scenic Root River/Lanesboro area close for day trips. Could cross SPAM museum in nearby Austin, MN and Field of Dreams in Dyersville, Iowa off my bucket list from there. Lol.

Pueblo, Colorado or Laramie, Wyoming ?
