St. Louis-Home. Despite all its flaws I will defend it til the day I die
Cincinnati-StL's cousin. Actually a really beautiful city with a promising future. I'm a big fan of Cincy and I can't wait to go back there
Buffalo-Snowy; from what I know is making a comeback
Sioux Falls-Rumor is that this city is a hidden gem, would love to check it out
Toledo-Seems like a total dump; all the worst aspects of the rust belt without any of the hope, optimism, hardiness, and creativity you see in the bigger regional cities (Detroit, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, etc.). I'm more than willing to be wrong, but I feel like the city just gave up a while ago
Fresno-Bargain California. Not paradise, not a dump, just kind of chuggin along
Mobile-Lil' N'arleans with a stronger Deep South influence, plus an increasingly important port
Jacksonville-Ugh. Not a fan. Makes me think of golf and retirement. We deserve a football team more than they do
Reno-Las Vegas' wannabe little brother, with easy access to Cali
Richmond-Damn beautiful, have never visited but desperately want to. The classiest-seeming Southern city IMO
El Paso-Seems like an underrated border town; from what I can tell, seems surprisingly urban and bustling for an American sunbelt city
Boston-Mark Wahlberg and "losin mah kahkis" comes to mind. Incredible history and architecture, but sorta don't like it because it's already so popular
San Diego-Kind of a mellow cross between LA (beaches) and San Francisco (history). Seems interesting

Modern-day Richmond is arguably the hippest (and hipsteriest) city in the south. I'm surprised the word hasn't gotten out.
