Your top 10(1-10) is agreeable. I'd switch Philly and Vegas.

First off, lists like this are stupid, every city has stuff to see and do and of course a city like OKC will not stack up to a city like Chicago.

Why is Richmond, Providence and Harford ranked so high in your opinion? There is much more to do in most of the cities you ranked below them.

Also, your spelling is worse than mine!

I'm always amazed to see how highly people rate lil old Hartford sometimes. I mean wow, 25. Puts a smile on my face lol.
I haven't been to San Diego, but I just figured it would rank above Hartford in a "fun" poll, but I wouldn't know with San Diego lol. I have been to Virginia Beach though, and I'd say its much more fun than Hartford, and then Providence is really alot less fun than Hartford in my opinion, so I definitely don't agree with that part of the list.

Hmm, lastly, I was wondering if LA shouldn't be 5th instead of SF? Or well really, I just figured it should be higher. I would also put Boston above Seattle, but I don't know about Dallas, and shouldn't New Orleans be at least 11?
Anyway it looks like a pretty good list, what'd you base it on after like 1-15? Did you like look up local attractions and stuff?

1. Whole Bay Area
2. Denver.
3. Tucson (Yes I have fun there)
4. Miami
5. San Deigo
6. Chicago
7. Los Angeles
8. NYC
9. Philadelphia
10. Austin
(None in any particular order)

I am done with my list, those are the most "fun" for me. If I listed all the large cities I have ever been to, I would probably have like about 32-35 tops, I haven't been to more than 35 for sure. So I can't really complete the list.
