I would say San Diego, which should be on the poll. Sure the weather is nice and it has beautiful oceanside scenery, but that's it. Many people, including the local media, make that city out to be some perfect utopia, with no crime, no pollution, no humidity, and everyone is friendly which I know from after living there for 10 years that it's total b.s. All San Diego is is a smaller, slower, and generic version of Los Angeles.

BOSTON. Holy crap enough with Boston. People there suck. Cold, malicious, apathetic. The weather also sucks and seriously, no one would give a f#@k about Boston if the old "underdog" Red Sox haven't been doing so well. Waaaaaay overrated. The city is also very racist (e.g. Southie busing crisis in the 70s--no, not Alabama in the 50s, Massachusetts in the 70s + Red Sox being last team to integrate) and overall very uninviting--especially to people who aren't of the like-minded aloof, parochial Boston/"New England" mold.

I lived in the Boston area for 15 years. I think your comments are a bit over the top, but you're spot on with the parochial Boston/New England attitude. Go Sox!!
