Cincinnati for sure. I consider it an underrated metro. I love the area.

Madison, WI or Omaha NE?

Madison, easily. Of course, I used to live there, but it truly is a pleasant, lively place to live.

Minneapolis or San Jose?

San Jose... Give me the better weather and culture of the Bay Area.

Houghton, MI or Caribou, ME?

Interesting. Normally I abstain from playing unless 1) I know both cities in question pretty well or 2) I am very certain of my answer. In this instance neither of the above is true, but I was intrigued enough to research what I could and ultimately I'm going with Houghton. They're both places that I probably would struggle to spend more than one consecutive year living in, but Houghton would probably be more doable because of its small-medium sized university.

Battle of the two college towns that I spent time in:

Gainesville, FL vs Muncie, IN

Gainesville. It's actually a pretty good college town, much better than Muncie, IMO.

Cape May, NJ or Hilton Head, SC?

Cape May, a community that held steadfast to its roots while Hilton Head consigned itself over to Development Hell.

Princeton, NJ or Charlottesville, VA?

Charlottesville. Mr. Jefferson's University is a more formal work of art than the one in Princeton, which is attractive in its own way; however, there is an elegance in the Lawn and Ranges that I think Princeton lacks. And Princeton Borough seems constantly in danger of choking on its own charm - it's too precious for its own good.

St. Joseph, Mo., or St. Joseph, Mich.?

St Joseph, MI

This one was not easy. Ultimately I'm going with Michigan cause I came across it a few months ago when folks were recommending beautiful second home locales. St Joseph, MI seems awesome in the summertime. It is also part of a slightly larger MSA and has a lower poverty rate (though both are over the national avg) Western Michigan is also much larger than the university that is in St Joseph, MO.

Nashville vs Austin

P.S. I am probably the last one to discover that this game is a fun way to discover new cities. I used to think I needed to know the cities if I was going to play, but I'm now realizing it's a cool way to do some research on places I dont know. Lol...so thanks to all those keeping this going.

Nashville. I've been here many times and love the area. I just find Austin overrated. Not a bad area, just doesn't live up to the hype for me. Too, not enough unique recreational assets compared to other metros over 1 million.

Boise, ID or Colorado Springs, CO?

Colorado Springs. Good access to outdoor activities, not too far from Denver, interesting weather.



Chapel Hill, NC or Fayetteville, AR?
