Just like to hear peoples thoughts.

I haven't been to all of them, but my favorites would have to be Indianapolis (probably because I was born there), and Atlanta.

Montpelier VT is the only state capital in the nation without a McDonalds. It's a very nice little town.

Wisconsin has the best capitol city, hands down. Madison rocks!

Steve-O, I'll have to agree with you; Madison is a nice town (Only one in America with an isthmus, isn't it? ) I'd give Annapolis, MD a slight edge because I lived there as a kid.

I'd imagine Augusta, Maine must be pretty nice as well. Harrisburg, PA leaves a lot to be desired, but, then again, if a place that hit rock bottom in the 1990s as hard as Scranton did can start to make a comeback now, then I'm sure Harrisburg can as well. I've also been craving a visit to Annapolis, MD.

Scranton W-B, I've seen Harrisbug from I-81 and I-83 and that'll probably do me! Yes, you should go down to see Annapolis! Watch where you park; popular local bumper sticker: "TAKE HOME AN ANNAPOLIS MEMORY: GET A PARKING TICKET" But Annapolis is a very walkable city with a fairly compact downtown area. The U.S. Naval Academy has a lot to see, as well.

By the way, we have friends here in Ohio that I served with in the USAF and the wife is from Forty Fort! I went home with them one time years ago and really liked what I saw. Nice renovation after the flood!

Cool Host city of the 1996 Olympics

ATLANTA, GA... No other capital city in the US can match what they pulled off in 1996. Rich history, diverse cultures, southern hospitality ( it's there hidden somewhere ).
Traffic and urban sprawl is the downfall, though.
