Daytona Beach or Fort Walton Beach?
Daytona, by the slightest of margins. I like FWB better as a city, but like Daytona's location near Orlando, St. Augustine, and the Space Coast better.

Atlanta, GA and Milwaukee, WI?

Milwaukee. I did Atlanta before and never again will I make that mistake.

Louisville, KY or Scranton, PA?

Louisville, KY without a doubt.

Winston Salem, NC or Arlington, TX?

WS. Sorry, Tim (my father-in-law in Arlington). I'll come visit (briefly) in the winter but I will never live there.

Cincinnati or Cleveland?

Cincinnati. I like Cleveland, but feel Cincinnati has more to offer overall for me.

Asheville, NC or Spokane, WA?

Asheville... Both are desirable cities but Asheville gets the edge for being warmer, having more culture (imo) and for being located in a less desolate region.

Dothan, AL or Lawton, OK?

Dothan, only because it's closer to beaches.

Pittsburgh, PA or Oakland, CA?

Yikes! I am swinging half-blind on this one but I'm gonna say Oakland. I actually do like Pittsburgh quite a bit but the Bay area is in my top 3 in the US so it's hard to pick against it. That said, I have spent, quite literally minutes in Oakland. I have only ever passed through and seen it from the car or from afar. So I'm just assuming I would find areas I like, but that's not a huge assumption.

DC vs Chicago

Chicago. It's one of my favorite cities anywhere. I love DC, but the COL is just too darn high. Chicago's COL is relatively low, yet has all of the world class city amenities.

Harrisburg, PA or Des Moines, IA?.

Harrisburg looks bigger than it is, and its riverfront is very nice. It also has a grand state capitol building, more ornate than Iowa's, featuring murals by a pioneering woman artist, Violet Oakley, in its Senate chamber. But that's got little to do with QOL, and I think that's higher in Des Moines.

Aside on a previous pairing: Gertrude Stein's famous phrase, "There's no there there," was written about her childhood home, which had vanished on a subsequent visit. That place is erroneously identified as Oakland, Calif. It's actually the Pittsburgh neighborhood of the same name.

Eighty Four, Pa., or Ninety Six, Tenn.?
