(In no particular order, though I have lived in 2 of them and have no intention of returning!)

1. Pittsburgh
2. Cleveland
3. Detroit
4. Buffalo
5. St. Louis

And on a more general note, just about anything in the state of New Jersey.

Detroit is disgusting (rest of the country following suit quickly). It will be 100 in Houston and 97 in Orlando and Jacksonville for the next 3 months and I don't care about a dry heat, Phoenix is too hot. Although, unlike Florida where you are trapped, in Phoenix you can drive to the mountains.
I think you have Florida and Hawaii mixed up. Florida is connected to the mainland if you didn't know.

4. Charlotte, NC- The downtown area is 9 by 9 blocks surrounded by I -277
5.Hartford, CT- I have family there but I cannot stand that city one bit.
81 blocks of compactness is not that bad! Outside of those 81 downtown blocks the city is quite suburban, however, Charlotte is a very attractive city overall.

I couldn't agree more...Charlotte, unlike a lot of its' peers, seems to be doing more things right than wrong.

May as well be Hawaii if you live in central or south Florida, you don't hit mountains for ten hours until you get to North Georgia.

1. Little Rock, AR
2. Spartanburg, SC
3. Birmingham, AL
4. Wichita, KS
5. Oklahoma City, OK

As much as I would not want to live in Detroit, it doesn't make my bottom 5. Maybe not even bottom 10. I've never been there but I feel like there might be stuff to do and Canada isn't far. I'd rather live there than most places in the south ^^^

Yet you can still drive to them. In other words, you're not trapped.

You have to list major cities. I don't consider these major cities except maybe Oklahoma City.
