Easily the most virbant midwest downtown outside of Chicago.
I have heard that the extensive above-ground pedestrian walkway system in MPLS takes away from the street level vibrancy, at least in the colder months. Is this true? I am not knocking Mpls, I have family in MN and have been there several times, but I haven't been in quite awhile, and never in the winter.

I'd agree that San Francisco is a great place. However, I believe most people rate it very highly. Not underrated at all.

Well, maybe, but the winters can be brutal there.

Albuquerque-one word-adobe
Boise(city amenities, beautiful land north of the city)

Juneau-the largest temperate rain forest in the world nearby, UGE mountains
Ruidoso(New Mexico)-looks like a really nice place with great weather, skiiing exct
Durango(Colorado)mesa's plateau's, old west feel
Chattanooga(Tennessee)-growth, job sector, proximity to ATL, mountains
Spearfish(South Dakota)-Black Hills, Sturgis
Alamogordo(New Mexico)-the pictures look cool
Dalton(Georgia)-mountains all around it, especially eastward
Valdosta(Georgia)-orange dirt, unique area with good weather, palm trees
Pensacola(Florida)-beautiful beaches and weather
Kalispel(Montana)-close to Glacier national park which is probably the cleanest place in the US)
Sequim(Washington)beaches, rain forest, and mountains
Seaside(Oregon)-sand dunes, mountains, rain forests, and beaches

..............You just proved my point Metro Wash D.C and San Francisco Bay are larger than Dallas Metroplex at 8 Million and & 7 Million as compared to Dallas 6 Millions...San Jose , San Francisco and Oakland are the Big Cioties that form the greater Bay Area.....And while I'm at it why isn't Riverside and S.B. County included in the Metro Los Angeles Population Count...That would jack up Metro LA Population to 19 Millions.

Corpus is dirty and run down. My buddy was born and raised there and will be the first to tell you to steer clear of Corpus.

I think Santa Barbara, CA is pretty underrated. It's nice as either a place to live in or get away to. It's not a small town, by any means. But I think it's overshadowed by all the other CA cities.

Oh, for some reason--not that it's important to me--Oprah lives there...

Philadelphia. It has its problems, but it has the most vibrant, urban and walkable downtown after NYC and Chicago; it is affordable for the middle class; it is conveniently located in the Northeastern Corridor and is accessible to many other great cities; and it has some of the most beautiful urban public places in the country (Rittenhouse Square, Washington Square, Wissahickon).
