Phoenix, better location, more interesting setting.

Albany, NY or Ithaca, NY?

Albany. I like the area. Larger and more to do.

Philadelphia, PA or Chicago, IL?

Philly. I dig the North East vibe, and Philly has tons of it.

Portland, or Boulder?

Portland because it is a nicer city with greater amenities. Portland has great scenery, too.

Indianapolis, IN or Yuma, AZ?

Yuma, because Indianapolis is merely Fort Wayne on steroids. There may be a bunch of things to do in it, but it's never struck me as having lots of character or personality.

Since we brought up Portland, let me rerun this one in hopes you answer it first. Frankly, I think the same superlatives could be used to describe both:

Portland, Ore., or Portland, Me.?

Portland, Oregon. Has more of what I look for in a city, beautiful scenery, & Id love to explore the Pacific Northwest more.

Another Oregon vs New England comparison with the same names...
Salem, MA or Salem, OR?

Salem, OR... The witch schtick seems to be overdone a bit in Salem, MA for my liking and its a little too far from the Boston city center for my liking. Salem, OR is larger, doesn't get snow, and is in a region with an overall high quality of life.

Visalia, CA or Abilene, TX?

Visalia, CA. Because you’re equal distance (~ 200 miles) to San Francisco and Los Angeles. It’s basically next to the sequoia national forest and is within close proximity of countless other areas of natural beauty.

How about two waterfront Great Lake cities,
Milwaukee, WI or Cleveland, OH?

Probably Cleveland, though I've never been to Milwaukee and would like to visit there someday.

Enid, OK or Plattsburgh, NY?

Yes, come visit us! Our lake is better .

Plattsburgh. I prefer everything about it.

Ogden, UT or Nampa, ID?
