I lived in Orange County, California when I was real young and don't remember it much. I lived in Denver for about 11 years(most of my childhood), Dallas for 6 years(I graduated high school here). I currently live in a dumb small town in the deep south.

I love Denver and I think that it's the perfect city to grow up in! Denver has plenty to see and do with lots of interesting museums, a zoo, city parks, cool events, hiking trails, excellent shopping, etc etc. If you've got a car, you can easily leave the city and take a trip to the mountains or explore other towns like Boulder or Greeley.

I love Dallas. I love the Texas culture, the Tex-Mex cuisine(and Denver has plenty of that as well), the wide open spaces, the friendly people, the shopping, everything.

Loved both Pittsburgh and DC (except for the summer heat)

What's considered major here? The biggest U.S. cities within whose boundaries I've resided are Columbus, Milwaukee, and Buffalo. Each excelled in different categories. I've lived in major metro areas (SF-San Jose and NYC-Phillie) but not in the largest cities of them.

Lived in NYC, London, and DC. Although London was my overall favorite, NYC's the best in the US by a landslide.

Yeah, done the Atlanta-Seattle thing to, and I like Atlanta better. Not to mention reasonably priced.

Looked at your profile, did you like Boston or Providence? For some reason, Providence seems like it would be livable, not horribly priced, and close to some cool things.

I've only lived in DC and Tampa. Each have good/bad. If I absolutely had to pick one, I guess I'd say DC by a hair, but only because the job market and overall education level are far better than here. Everything else... no, that's why I left. The people suck, the cost of living sucks, the traffic is abysmal, the winters are frigid and gray.

It's amazing how "first impressions" mean a lot. I've visited DC 4 times. I have NEVER liked it and could never imagine living there. I perceived all of the things you listed.

It's my home (well, just across the river in NoVA, technically). It will always be my home. But it's hard to have a happy life there, as evidenced by the legions of disgruntled transients found on the beltway and metro system every day.
