New York
Chicago
Philadelphia
Los Angeles
Toronto
Detroit
Pittsburgh
Washington, DC
San Francisco
New Haven
Ann Arbor
Oakland

that's all I can do without going into cities I've never been to but might be interested in (Vancouver, Nashville, Mexico City), or cities I don't remember much about (Montreal, Cleveland, New Orleans), or cities I simply don't like much (Boston, Seattle).

Also, is it just because this is an English speaking forum that Mexican cities aren't getting mentioned?

Obviously you haven't either to make such a rediculous claim. Philly is a huge city. Theres a little of everything. Beautiful areas, not so beautiful areas, ok areas....and once again there goes someone from Boston/SF trying to prove their city is soo much better than everyone elses.

Interesting that I did this poll roughly two years ago and to reflect back on it. I don't think I'd change it other than switch Chicago and New York City (Chicago being in the top spot). I'd add Vancouver. I'd probably move Cleveland and Reading down and add Detroit to the bottom of the list.

Most people are listing big cities, but I'm going to list big cities plus small/medium cities. I find it difficult to compare the two different types, so I'm going to do two lists:

Big Cities:
1. New Orleans: One of the most distinctive cities in the world. Love the food, music, architecture and general vibe of the city.
2. New York City: America's biggest city, huge variety of things to see and do.
3. Washington, DC: Love the National Mall with all the museums and monuments, but the city itself is also a lot of fun with neighborhoods like Dupont Circle, Adams Morgan, U Street, Georgetown, etc.
4. Atlanta, GA: Great skyline, fun touristy stuff downtown and the increasingly vibrant Midtown. And the Braves!
5. Honolulu (not sure this counts as North American, but what the heck): neat city in the middle of paradise.
6. Nashville, TN: Music City feels very vibrant downtown with all the honky-tonks and music venues. The city also has some nice parks.
7. San Juan, PR: the city itself was only okay for me, but a beautiful setting.

Small and Medium sized Cities
1. Auburn, AL: Great little southern college town. It has really grown a lot in the past twenty years. War Eagle!
2. Charleston, SC: great food and an architecturally lovely walkable downtown.
3. Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, USVI: Fun (if toursity) city in a warm beach atmosphere.
4. Key West, FL: funky beach community that has been pretty shamelessly commercialized but is still pretty fun.
5. San Pedro, Belize: when I went there over a decade ago it was a fairly sleepy little town with unpaved roads right off the world's second largest barrier reef. Hopefully it has kept its charm.
6. Savannah, GA: Beautiful squares in this old-school southern town.

Those area all places I have actually been. I have my first trip to Chicago lined up for later this year and also hope to visit Seattle and Boston in the future. Maybe when I do some of those places will get spots on my list. And yeah, I know it is thirteen, but I didn't want to leave any of those cities off my list...

You seem upset. Maybe it's time to go outside and get some fresh air, and not be so pressed over someone's preference.
