Harrisburg, PA or Des Moines, IA?.
Des Moines, which deserves more credit than it usually gets.

Mobile, AL or Jacksonville, FL?

Would probably go with Mobile due to its vast amount of historical buildings.

Lake Forest, IL or Winnetka, IL?

I'd imagine both are wealthy suburbs on the north shore. I'd pick Winnetka, closer to Evanston, Chicago, and entertainment.

Kirkland, WA or Bainbridge, Island, WA?

Not familiar with either place and would rather not live in most of Washington, but I'd probably pick Kirkland for cooler winters and slightly closer proximity to Spokane (though it's still over 5 hours away).

Helena, MT or Cheyenne, WY?

I'd easily grow tired of both places, so I'd pick Cheyenne as its only two hours to Denver, vs six hours to Calgary, nearest big city to Helena.

Newport, RI or Portsmouth, NH?

Both areas are very nice, but Newport, RI because I love the Cliffwalk mansions. I also love the neat shops on Thames Street and Rhode Island is underrated in general.

Murfreesboro, TN or Morgantown, WV?

Um, we stomped on each other again? Your post went up a minute or less after mine. Both of us picked Des Moines, however, and for pretty much the same reason.

We have two open pairs:

Murfreesboro, Tenn., or Morgantown, W. Va. or Eighty Four, Pa., or Ninety Six, Tenn.

I'll knock off the former: Murfreesboro. Morgantown, a college town, may be the smallest city in the country with rail transit (in the form of a people mover), but I'll take Murfreesboro's Civil War history over that.

Which brings us (back) to:

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

I don't have a very strong sway on either side for this one but I'll choose Eighty Four, PA. Cooler weather if nothing else. Interesting town names though...

Nashville, TN or Austin, TX? Strong music scene cities.

Smashville. I might actually die in the Texas heat and Nashville has a great hockey fan base.

Waco, TX or Prescott, AZ?

Prescott, AZ. Being at a 5K ft elevation gives it superior weather and scenery. Id rather drive the extra hour or so and be at the beaches of Southern California than the Gulf as well. I can see how being between Austin and Dallas is a plus for many with Waco.

Minneapolis, MN or Detroit, MI?
