My philosophy: "Whatever city your currently living in".

That said, here's my breakdown (by age):

0-24 and 38+:
1.) Boston (MSA) -- amazing place to raise a family and/or go to college; tons of history, high quality of life, most European in appearance/layout (imho), high concentration of intelligent and educated people.
2.) San Francisco (MSA)
3.) NYC (MSA)

1.) NYC -- its Gotham, enough said.
2.) San Francisco -- beautiful views, pleasant weather, lots of green space, good career opportunities, lots of people with "change the world" mentality.
3.) Boston

Favorite cities to visit
1.) Miami
2.) San Diego
(Never been to Vegas or Honolulu)

If I had the choice, I would probably retire abroad...maybe Israel or New Zealand...or, maybe somewhere on the NorCal coast.

This. Hopefully Philadelphia and Atlanta will be on my most favorite city list once I visit them both.

Besides the city I was born, raised and live in (Los Angeles), in this exact order, it would be:

San Diego
San Francisco

New York City

I love both San Diego and San Francisco. San Diego gets more credit for me because of the weather. Brooklyn was fine, but I wouldn't live there. New York City is alright. I wasn't too impressed. I need to spend more time there next time. I do plan on continuing my visits to New York because of family.

I have no plans on moving out of the greater LA area. Love this city with all my heart. To live and die in LA.

San Francisco, which has a European feel.

Big Cities:

Los Angeles - everything from diversity, pretty women, the beaches and there's so much to do, very sunny plus I'm originally from their too.

San Francisco - Love the old school East Coast architectured buildings, Japantown, the MUNI trolley buses, old school streetcars, the Cable Cars, nice cool chill in the summer time, and very laidback and hip culture.

Miami - South Beach, Jamaican Food, very distinct from other southern U.S. cities, Beautiful Caribbean women and their accents plus Ft. Lauderdale/Broward County and West Palm Beach are just as nice

Small/Medium Cities:

Orlando - Disney World and the suburbs look sweet!

Albuquerque - nice friendly and laidback city and area in the middle of the dessert and southern Rockies

Now for cities I haven't been to yet like Seattle, NYC, Minneapolis, Dallas nor Houston for example I do want to visit one day in the future.

Overall Seattle is my favorite city as I love the food, the people, the exceptionally beautiful setting, its vibrant downtown and the eclectic neighborhoods, but the weather and COL there doesn't agree with me. Other cities I love....

San Francisco
San Diego

New Orleans is the only major city left on my bucket list.
