I know that sounds weird, but the deserts just have a certain charm to them. You'd have to experience it for yourself to understand. Every landscape has a certain beauty of its own and I've learned to appreciate them all not holding one better than the other.

I've been to Mexico... (Durango, Mexico... Chihuahan Desert)

I think I understand what a desert is.
And I did not find it beautiful.

I guess this is just one of those different strokes for different folks thing.

As a matter of fact, the new Cubs spring training facility will look quite beautiful in the desert.

Omaha by a long shot. Charlotte's infrastructure has not kept up with its population growth, and it is way too hot and humid. Albuquerque is way too hot and dry (and to balloon boy, seriously, who cares?). Omaha people are friendly, there is a wide variety of restaurants and things to do, and is not overly crowded. Sure, Nebraska doesn't have mountains, but there are beautiful hills, rivers, etc.

Balloon boy? The poll speaks for itself dude. Omaha is getting romped!

And over 790,000+ people a year for the past 40 years have cared about the Balloon fiesta FYI.
Soooo yea.... sure beats the hell out of anything Omaha can bring in a crowd for? CWS? not by a longshot.

And "wide variety of restaurants" so does Albuquerque... "overly crowded", Albuquerque is not crowded.......... gosh, tell me something I DONT KNOW.
