Out of that group, I'd give Atlanta the nod for the best skyline.

I would go Washington for everything but a Skyline. Great architecture though.

Never been to New Orleans, but I bet the culture there is great.

Atlanta.

I would say DC but Atl beats that city in cost of living.

I would go with DC. DC is accessible to cities in Virginia and cities to the North. Plus their public transportation is better. I would not have to drive all the time.

I voted for Cleveland because I'm a smartass ... oh, and because it actually matches up fairly well with any city on the list, except for Washington.

I would pick Baltimore and in fact, already did. Why? Well, I love DC but the cost of living for a home or apartment in a decent area is outrageous. Plus, I have three dogs and needed a yard of some sort. Baltimore has better transit options than all listed but DC also. It has a great location with quick and convenient transit up and down the east coast. It has a fluency to it, meaning I can walk to anywhere I wish to go without having to deal with the hood or car central. It has made tremendous progress. Now, don't get me wrong. My purpose is not to diss the other places. I just prefer Baltimore.

St. Louis. The cultural and history are ridiculously rich and in most of the county and some of the city it's beautiful, green, hilly, and pretty wealthy, too.
