Been to: Minneapolis.

Haven't been to yet: Boston.

I love Minneapolis and the sooner I can live up around there, the better.

Los Angeles, used to be Phoenix until I started spending alot of time in LA, it makes even inner city Phoenix look like the boonies.

I like LA enough that I am moving there in the next 2 years

i like Greenville SC, due to the 4 season climate weather with tolerable winter weather with little snow, scenery, proximity to mountains and 3 pristine lakes and Clemson University where I went to college, reasonable cost of living, and fantastic downtown area with a 30 foot drop waterfall right off a tree lined Main Street.

Close runnerup is Frederick MD due to proxmity to both mountains and DC, and a quaint old school village type downtown area with a nice park and canal. DC is my favorite large city but the crazy high cost of living and traffic issues curbs my enthusiasm.

Santa Barbara, CA. Beautiful setting, beautiful architecture, beautiful people. An absolute paradise.

La Crosse, Wiconsin is one of the coolest places that I've been to recently. The entire Driftless Region deserves more attention.

I agree with a few others on here that Cleveland is very underrated. I love those Great Lakes cities like Rochester, Buffalo, Cleveland, Detroit, Chicago and Milwaukee. My brother and his wife live in Sheboygan, WI, which is also a nice little city and area.

I love many cities across the country (but few are places that I'd consider living), but Minneapolis is the first place I loved that I thought would also make a nice place to live.

The Twin Cities area has a park-like feel. It's also very clean, and almost remote feeling.

Wish I could have found a job up there instead of in Texas. I know I'd be happier.

My top 5:

New York - it's the ultimate urban experience, it has it all
Philadelphia - it has all the history, vibrancy and gorgeous suburbs
Chicago - lake setting, juxtaposed with urban setting, vibrancy
Seattle - most beautiful setting of any city, hiking, music
Los Angeles - it has all the sun, beaches and entertainment
