Sturgeon Bay, WI or Grand Marais, MN?
Sturgeon Bay... larger population (9k vs 1.5k), 45 min from Green Bay (while GM is 2 hours from Duluth), and is warmer for every season except winter.

Perth Amboy, NJ or Trenton, NJ?

Close call. Prefer Perth Amboy's proximity to NYC though, so I'll take it.

Miami, FL or Phoenix, AZ?

Phoenix, I've always found a lot to do in AZ, one of my favorite states.

Montpelier, VT or Plattsburgh, NY?

Plattsburgh due to size and location(Lake Champlain, Montreal and proximity to the Adirondacks).

Kalamazoo MI or Muncie IN?

Muncie, IN because it is nicer.

New Orleans, LA or Boston, MA?

Boston. I don't feel like New Orleans would be my kind of place. Neither would Boston, but I see more good things in Boston (especially weather).

Scranton, PA or Charleston, WV?

Never been to either so I'm flying a little blind here. Ehhhh, I think Charleston is intriguing just for being in WV and being the largest metro in its state. But Scranton is double the size so a safer bet. Plus it is closer to NYC and Philly.

Boise vs Des Moines

Scranton is an interesting place. The beautifully restored Lackawanna RR station aside, most of its downtown looks as if it had been frozen in amber circa 1950.

Des Moines. Boise may have mountains nearby, but Iowa's largest city has a bigger cool factor IMO.

Sacramento, Cal., or Columbus, Ohio?

Sacramento... Better weather, more culture, better local road trips. Columbus (while solid by midwest standards) is an oversized college town with a suburban layout that doesn't interest me.

Idaho Falls, ID or Duluth, MN?

I prefer Duluth's weather and absolutely love the accent up there. Idaho Falls does have nice proximity MT, WY, and UT though. Duluth wins out. That being said, I've never been to either city or state so my opinion could change.

Mobile, AL or Augusta, GA?
