I want your opinion and please explain why. I'll explain mine later.

Criteria is based on (it can be lacking or having strengths in each one):

Nightlife/Party scene (or lack thereof. Is it fun to go out, or is the scene lame, or are you in a "churchy city")
Outdoor Recreation
Cultural Amenities (live theaters, museums, etc.)
Dining (varied scene or chains galore?)
Overall "Blah" or "WOW!" factor
Proximity to other cities when you're bored with the one you're in (driving)

When I say "for their size," is there a metro that you consider "large" (2 Million +), but you find the options more fitting for a smaller metropolitan area rather than a large one? Do you find yourself falling into a rut more often than not, just eating out and shopping because you think "there's nothing else to do". Is it that there really is "nothing else to do," or there's nothing else that YOU'D like to do?

The cities I picked were because they come up quite a bit when it comes to this topic on this forum, and I'm a big believer in "where there's smoke, there's fire"

I guess I have to say other. None of these cities fit ALL of that criteria.

I would suggest searching around the forum a bit as there have been other threads/topics that are close enough to this one in terms of "boring cities" that we really don't need a new one. Please add to those you find in a search rather than create a new one to keep the room less cluttered with duplicates. Thank you.
