It's an amazing city in more ways than one, and it more than enough qualifies for one of the best downtowns in the country.

you know what, im not gonna focus on the large cities of the US this time. I cant talk about my city Boston so I will say

Worcester MA

For beeing such a small city (175,000 people) its got a large downtown and people go out and walk in the city. Also its the birth place of Diners!

Portland....Maine

Its a small town around 50,000 people. But its got a beautiful downtown/historical district. Everyone should visit Portland Maine at leaste for once.

I'm realy impressed with the two Eastern Seaboard Cities of Philly
and Pittsburgh , but my problem is that I never been to either one
of them..."and" I don't want to be a "City Data" Buster talking about
stuff that I know nothing about.

Pittsburgh certainly has gotten back up on it's feets again it's a
BEAUTIFUL CITY........

I live in Philadelphia. Living there is quite boring sometimes, and dangerous due to a high homicide rate, but I love to go downtown and "tour" the city I live in!

Philly has one of the awesomest downtowns in the US...actually it's so good it's not even called "Downtown", but, rather, it is known as "Center City"!

I'd also nominate Washington DC, Richmond (my birth city), and, despite it's small size, the Philly suburb of Reading.

Across the US, I'm going to take you West to East:

West Coast (Or West Coast states and region): San Francisco, Seattle, Denver, San Deigo (The ocean front), L.A, Oakland, Las Vegas, Kansas City, Portland, Sacramento, Phoenix, Long Beach, Tuscon, Albuquerque, Salt Lake City, Reno. (In that Order)

Gulf Coast (Or Gulf Coast states and region): Miami, Houston, Atlanta, Dallas, New Orleans, Austin, Orlando, Tampa, San Antonio, Fort Worth, Birmingham, Fort Lauderdale, St. Petersburg, El Paso, Mobile, Corpus Christi, Baton Rouge, Midland, Irving, Amarillo, Fresno, Lubbock, Bakersfield, Waco (In that order)

Third Coast (Midwestern states are called Third coasts): Chicago, Detroit, St. Louis, Cleveland, Louisville, Indianapolis, Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Cincinnati, Columbus, Toledo, St. Paul. (In that Order)

American South Central (Southern- southwestern states): Nashville, Oklahoma City, Memphis, Tulsa, Omaha, Knoxville, Little Rock. (In that order)

Outside US Contiguous Area (Islands and non connected states): Honolulu, San Juan, Anchorage (In that order)

East Coast (States and regions): New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Boston, Charlotte, Pittsburgh, Jacksonville, DC (Not by buildings but by monuments), Buffalo, Jersey City, Rochester, Newark, Raleigh, Richmond. (In that Order)
Dude Omaha is North.

Okay, I know that it's a very underrated city but Pittsburgh has a very significant downtown for a city of it's size. It's architecturally beautiful and being amidst rivers and bridges just adds on to it's natural beauty as well as the hills nearby.

I think overall best downtown minus those four cities that you have excluded would have to go to Seattle. If it isn't enough that the Space Needle brightens the atmosphere of downtown, then I must say that the scenery near the coast is an added bonus with a mountain backdrop right behind the skyline and the hills and green tree's being nearby must simply make it a great scenery.

Seattle is a great city, it is highly educated and the downtown area is very lively compared to other big cities of it's size. It has the best downtown I have seen in America, maybe not in height or number of buildings or even density, but because of the natural scenery applied to it's location.

The only runner up city I could even possibly name would be San Fran, but that's been excluded so after that would definitely be either San Deigo or Portland. Both feature a water view, mountains, and are quite lively (especially San Deigo) for cities of their size.
