Albuquerque, NM or Pittsburgh, PA?
Ooooh, now that's a good one. Even though it's close, I'd say Albuquerque because y'know, dry heat.

Evansville, IN vs. Asheville, NC

Oh my Asheville, NC by a mile. Much prettier. And Evansville is a glorified version of my humble home town Terre Haute, IN (which I love)

Champaign-Urbana IL vs Bloomington-Normal IL

Champaign, as the downtown of Champaign and Campustown are significantly better than that in Blo-No. Also, in my experience the streets are much more well maintained in Champaign. ISU is nice but UIUC is miles upon miles better.

Savannah, GA or Corpus Christi, TX?

Savannah has far more luxuriant vegetation and much more of a culturally rich, vibrant urban core than Corpus Christi. This is an easy choice from my perspective.

Toledo, OH or Pueblo, CO?

That's a close one - again. And again, I'm going to pick the one with a higher charm score, Savannah.

And one of the following two communities, IMO, is in danger of choking on its own preciousness. See if you can read my mind and guess which one:

Annapolis, Md., or Princeton, N.J.?

I see I waited a bit too long before posting - was looking at photos of Corpus to make sure I had the charm factor right (I did).

I think this one's an easy choice: Pueblo. I think the Rockies might just edge out Lake Erie for scenic value.

Now, back to the two I'd put forth above: two charming communities, one of them I hold up as a textbook example of what I call "terminal charm":

Annapolis, Md., or Princeton, N.J.?

Annapolis, MD. We are a Navy family, so it appeals to me a little more. Although both communities have beautiful historic architecture.

Branson, MO or Lexington, KY?

Lexington... larger, more opportunities, better proximity to other major metro areas. Would rather vacation in Branson though.

Carson City, NV or Cheyenne, WY?

Carson City, it's warmer and close to California, as well as Vegas. Cheyenne is nicer too and is obviously closer to Denver, but I guess you're just closer regionally to more in CS.

Aurora, CO vs Aurora, IL?

Aurora, CO. Chicago beats the hell out of Denver but the rocky mountains and mild climate of the Front Range more than make up for that.

Alpine, TX vs. Athens, OH
