Yeah, Phoenix? What about Chicago?

Those you need to visit and should revisit again: Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, San Francisco, and Seattle.

World cities to visit: Hong Kong, London, Madrid, Paris, Shanghai, Tokyo
Cleveland, what am I supposed to do in Cleveland?

I put Phoenix on my list because it seems like Phoenix has a bad rap on this forum. I figured that if some on this forum would actually visit the area, they could see that it's really not a bad place to live at all.

I've been to Chicago a handful of times and really wasn't that impressed. Yes, it's nice and has quite a bit of history but if you visit NYC then I see no need to see Chicago. This is an opinion question and I gave my opinion.

I would say New Orleans(great place to visit, but horrible place to live). Las Vegas is a good place to visit but I would never live there.

Youre not impressed with Chicago, but then tell folks to visit Phoenix? Why? So they can drive through the hot and dusty air, stare at a small downtown with nothing to do, then drive through endless pseudo-adobe cookie cutter subdivisions? Youve got me confused.

We all know you hate Chicago, but if you loved NYC, you should love Chicago, its just scaled down.

Cities you should visit in the USA:

NYC
Miami
San Francisco
Chicago
Boston
Philadelphia

Chicago has a different vibe. It's quite different from NYC. Being from NYC, I know the NYC feel and Chicago doesn't have it. Chicago has a feel of its own and I like it. It's relaxed and exciting at the same time. There's mega-skyscrapers next to beautiful GREEN parks. The lake looks like the Gulf of Mexico in Tampa. There's a river lined with buildings, The Magnificent Mile, The Loop, etc. If you put Phoenix on there, Chicago MUST be on there. There's no arguing that. Chicago is a must-see, Phoenix is not.
