Lol, all you have to do is look at the OP's username "Memphis1"...if you haven't caught on by now this whole site is full of bias opinions, but it's still entertaining.

You should be required to show proof of knowing what the hell you are talking about before producing lists like these .

I have been to every city on that list and many more.

Generally speaking and with a few exceptions, you and rank cities in a list like this by simply listing them in order of their metro population.

The bigger the city, the less “boring” it will be. But again, I can enjoy myself in Birmingham just as much as I can in Chicago. Will I spend a week on vacation in Birmingham? No, but I wills seek out what makes Birmingham interesting and unique, check out major attractions etc and walk away from Birmingham generally impressed as I did. It’s all relative. I don’t expect Birmingham to be like Chicago, but enjoy what the city offers.

Very odd list though, I would really like to see some of your reasoning. You have some small towns that really don’t have a lot going on ranked above dozens of cities that have a lot going on and are much larger metros.

The same can be said for San Diego, which also has great beaches, mountains, one of the best zoos in the world, a wild animal park, Sea World, the historic downtown Gaslamp District, the historic Old Town area (birthplace of California), Seaport Village, Coronado Island, Balboa Park, sailing, whale watching, fishing, etc.

I don't think there is any way that the OP has been to the majority of these places or the rankings would be a lot different. No surprise there though, being that many people on CD like to show their ignorance by rating and judging places they have never even been to.

You know, on a city discussion forum, the ignorance and closed-mindedness that stands behind the reasoning of rankings and lists like these is astounding.

I would expect people who post here to be genuinely interested in cities, big and small. I would expect people here to be more educated about the dynamics of cities, wanting to learn more about them and explore them...but instead, just as many--if not more--opportunities are taken to bring them down.

Honestly, what do people get out of this? Do you all really expect every single place in the country to be New York City?

Denver and San Diego should also be ranked much higher than some of them in the list.

San Antonio is too high in the fun factor, while San Diego is too low. Jmo.

I'll have you know snow is very exciting lol. For some of us anyway. There's plenty more you can do cause it snows, and the world doesn't stop just cause there's some fluffy white stuff on the streets.

I haven't been to Charlotte or Raleigh so they could be more exciting cities. I'm just saying, just cause it snows doesn't take any of the fun away.

Most Southern Metros are boring, except maybe for Miami or Dallas.
