I love Charleston. It is a very nice city to BE in. That's how I judge a city,and you can have your Bostons and Atlantas.

I guess we'll have to agree to disagree. I respect a capital if its vibrant, has a serious cultural scene going on, and if it's a major city. Charleston is just too small and isolated and slow-paced for my taste.

I prefer larger capitols, they have more character than just being the state capitol compared to a place like Springfield, Illinois.
Agreed.

I like the charm of the smaller capital cities.

My favorite capitol cities are 1) Annapolis, 3) Boston and 3) Honolulu

Charleston, West Virginia ranks 4th and is a pretty awesome city that blows away most other state capitals such including Albany, NY and Sacramento, CA

Madison is the nicest one I've seen, although St. Paul is up there, too..

Should also mention Boston, Denver; Lincoln, NE is also fairly nice, and Montpelier is very quaint, as there are often schoolchildren playing on its front lawn..
