Domestic:
New York (live here)
Chicago
Philadelphia
Boston
Washington, DC
San Francisco
Los Angeles
Baltimore
Milwaukee
St. Louis
Atlanta
Orlando
Buffalo

Abroad:
Montreal
Toronto
London
Prague
Berlin

I've passed through Providence, Hartford, Rochester, Richmond, Tampa and Phoenix. I'm planning a trip to Barcelona in March. I've also been to Quebec City, but that falls a little short of a million people.

The "too-see" list for abroad is way too long, but probably topped by Paris, Rome and Beijing. In North America, New Orleans, the Pacific Northwest, and Texas.
