I have noticed many cities/regions get bashed to the bone. So I think it is time for some positive reinforcement. Say something good about:
Detroit
Atlanta
Houston
The South
Medium/Small cities
LA
Any other place you have seen get bashed to pieces on this site.

Detroit- a RICH musical history
Atlanta- a mecca for black professionals
Houston- Big houses for low prices
The South- The bible belt (yes there are folk who think that is a good thing)
Medium/small cities- not as much congestion
LA- The LA Angels (hey give me credit aint Anaheim close enough?)
Hampton Roads, VA- a powerhouse of NFL talent

Detroit-close to Canada, very nice older homes that just need a little TLC, close to Ann Arbor
Atlanta-if you stay inside of I-285 it is not too bad.
Houston-close to the coast and pretty diverse
The South-places like Savannah, New Orleans, and Chapel Hill
Medium/Small cities-I like some of the college towns
LA-near the ocean, Hollywood, nice clubs
The exurbs-sorry I tried, I've got nothing!!!

Detroit: some good museums, interesting history, good skating (figure and hockey, although I personally don't like hockey)
Atlanta: some very pleasant neighborhoods, historic black colleges
Houston: good museums, diverse, some beautiful older homes
The South: natural beauty, history, sweet tea
Medium/Small cities: generally "off the beaten track", tourist-wise, but still often filled with interesting places to see, usually much lower cost of living
LA: Hollywood (the neighborhood, not the industry) vibrant and bustling downtown, tons of diversity, beautiful setting, orange trees, wide range of architecture, both historic and modern
