Great food. Sonoran/Arizonan Mexican food, my favorite. Big enough city to find many other kinds; Middle Eastern, all the East Asians, Ethiopian, Dutch, etc.

In my opinion it's a perfect place for outdoors lovers. Nature is close and people in Tucson care about the desert. With Saguaro National Park split on both sides of town, national forest on the northside of town and the Tucson mountain preserve on the west, protected wild areas are close to the city. Hiking, mountain biking, skiing, you name it is convenient.

There's not too many large steady high cultural attractions like museums or plays or whatnot, but there's plenty of off the beaten path one of a kind places like unique shops, someone's sculpture in a wierd spot in the middle of a neighorhood, or real oddball like the "El Tiracito" shrine near downtown, the airplane graveyard, the old mission, colossal cave, or others I can't think of right now.

Oh yeah, ranked 6th in air quality for US cities.
I agree! I love Tucson and the Southwest in general. The southwest U.S is very underrated. So much history and beauty.

My favorite city is Nashville.

While most folks think country music when they think of Nashville, there are also many historic, entertainment, and outdoor activities to experience in the music city.

Fort Worth.

HOME.

The "most Texan city in Texas". Just everything about the people, the women, the growing neighborhoods, and just so much potential and wide open space. Even if I'm thousands of miles away, I'll never turn my back on this city.

For large cities that I've visited it would be a toss up between NYC and Chicago... I just wish they weren't so far North!

Small cities it would be Savannah or Charleston.
