MLK march for Mobile ?! MLK never organized a march in Mobile . Even though the city is in Alabama ,Mobile's racial tension during the Civil Rights era was not on the same scope as Birmingham, Montgomery ,and other cities in the south. That's why there are no Civil Rights Era museums in Mobile because the city did not experience tension on the level as others.It wasn't an utopia but there was a lot of peace. The black churches in Mobile organized and sent funds to other cities in Alabama as well as the south to help fund the crusade. That was Mobile's part in the MLK marches in Alabama.

Easy to put down places where most have never been right?

St.Louis - Lots of cool, old stuff... declined, so probably a lot of blight

Cincinnati - Lots of cool, old stuff with hilly terrain

Buffalo - Cold, too much snow, blue collar, probably lots of great food and booze

Sioux Falls - Run of the mill and Midwestern?

Toledo - Industrial, blue collar, run down

Fresno - Probably underrated as a place to live based on location and climate

Mobile - Okay Lower South coastal city... great beaches nearby

Jacksonville - Good climate and location, nice beaches

Reno - Fun location, great scenery nearby

Richmond - Excellent location, decent climate

El Paso - Great climate if you like the desert, pretty isolated, brown

Boston - Best city on the East Coast, lots to do, tons of history, great setting, miserable and long winters

San Diego - Great scenery and climate...kinda of seems like a giant California suburb, but I haven't been there in over 13 years

That's better than an ignorant assumption about MLK marches.

St.Louis: Arch, Lewis & Clark

Cincinnati: WKRP

Buffalo: Too much snow

Sioux Falls: Credit card bill. No reaction otherwise.. Can't picture it. No idea why someone would go to South Dakota.

Toledo: No idea, except that someone I know online has a restaurant there.

Fresno: No idea. In California.

Mobile: Southern. People there would all pronounce pin and pen the same way. Wouldn't be able to stand it. Not going.

Jacksonville: City in Florida with no beach. What is the point.

Reno: Place known for where people used to go for an easy divorce.

Richmond: Giant Marlboro pack visible from I-95. Historically significant.

El Paso: Sounds exotic.

Boston: Cute, smallish city with major historical and educational vibe.

San Diego: Everyone I know who has ever been here loved it.
