See the liberty bell

I love both Houston and Philly. They are both great world class cities and both just below the top 3 in importance

The only thing I would say Philly offers more than Houston is a historical presence and a more urban experience. However, the arts, museums, food, and recreation is just as abundant in Houston as it is in Philly.

I find the urban experience as tons of fun. In fact I'd sooner visit London, Paris, and Venice over the Grand Cayman Islands, Hawaii, the Virgin Islands, and theme parks. That's just me though.

Right there with you. The historic urban NE has always interested me. I still have yet to visit Boston. The only major NE city I haven't been to.

I pick Phoenix. it's sentimental to me from having family that used to live there plus it's in Arizona and not Texas which is a better state in my opinion. The people of Phoenix are nice and friendly and pretty open minded except for the governor of course lol. I wouldn't live in Houston because I hate humidity, hurricanes, plus it's in Texas.

Phoenix

Phoenix HANDS DOWN! No gloomy, rainy, humid weather with the chance of a hurricane. Nothing but sunshine and fun in the sun. Plus the mountains and proximity to other awesome places such as Southern Cal, Vegas, Grand Canyon and Utah. Houston (like every other city east of the Great Plains) looks just like every other city. Nothing but boring, green, deciduous trees with bugs everywhere. Phoenix is exotic with the desert southwest backdrop of endless mountains and amazing sunsets. The state of Arizona has more to offer than most people will ever realize and we like to keep it that way. Phoenix is the only city in the U.S. of it's size that you can feel like you're in a quiet small town. That's a PLUS in my book.

PLUS:
The governer of AZ knows how to protect the citizens of her state like not even the President of the U.S. does.
