Spokane, WA

If you've never heard of it, and/or don't know what it's like, let's keep it that way.

No particular order the cities I would like to live in:

New York!- Love going up there would love to live in Manhattan someday if I ever get the money

Boston- Great city with a lot of history. Kind of similar to my hometown

Philadelphia- my hometown and birthplace. The only major city I've actually lived in so far. Love the people and experiences I've had here. Was so happy to move back after living in the suburbs for a couple years!

Washington DC- The capital of the country. Nice big urban city too

San Francisco- Just visited for the first time recentley. Awesome city! Really unique and weird (in a good way) and a lot of fun

Chicago- Ok, so I've never actually been to Chicago, but I've always really liked it. Seems like a nice big city.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cities I like but wouldn't want to live in:

LA
Miami
Vegas

^^ awesome cities. I love the hot weather, and I hate the cold, but I'm more of a big city person, and by big city I mean urban, and like the first group I listed, but to me, these 3 are great vacation spots, and great cities, overall, but not for me, even though I do like them a lot

San Francisco - beautiful weather, nice vibes, and historical significance
Seattle - lovely weather (yes I'm serious ) and nice views.
Boston - Lots of history and gorgeous building, it's cold though in winter.

Seattle!

The weather is perfect. Nonstop sun in the summers with temperatures that in my opinion are perfect - not too hot at all. The winters aren't too cold, and even though it rains a lot then, it's perfect for just cuddling up inside and relaxing.

The scenery... Mount Rainier is beautiful. Then you have the Sound and the Olympic Mountains across that. Not to mention the Cascades and Mount Baker to the east of the city.

The city is also very safe and the downtown is very beautiful and kept up instead of trashed.

There is also a lot of culture to be found in Seattle - and I'm a fan of how the people are.

Then my next picks would be Denver, Portland, and of course New York City just because it's New York City!

Mine's not a city, it's a town of a little less than 4000 people.

It's called Valdez and it's in Alaska. I was drawn to it at first because of how much snow it gets in the winter (325.6 inches in town and over 600 near Thompson Pass just a drive down the road). Then I began to notice that the mountainous scenery of it is really beautiful and that deepened my liking for it. But I think the biggest things are that it's a small town, it's nestled in a fjord on the banks of Prince William Sound, and it's in the great state of Alaska
