We all keep hearing about the well known cities like Seattle, Boston, and Chicago. But what about obscure cities? Name one obscure city that you personally like.

Springfield Massachusetts. It gets a bad rap for crime in the inner city and a stagnant economy but the downtown is beautiful and it is surrounded by some of the most charming suburban towns in the country. The setting on the Connecticut river in the pioneer valley with mountains in the background is magic.

Springfield, Massachusetts is also home of the Basketball Hall of Fame which for me as a sports fan is pretty cool.

Tucson, AZ

An eclectic college town, beautiful valley setting among saguaro cacti covered hills and surrounding mountains, an improving downtown with a new streetcar line, and it has an historic old pueblo feel with palpable Southwestern character, and stellar sunsets. I really enjoy visiting this city.

Winston Salem, NC

It's a cool city of 230K with a lot of arts/cultural events, historic architecture, a thriving/revitalized downtown area,
an excellent local food scene, a moderate four season climate, one of the lowest costs of living in the US and a
well above average old-growth tree canopy not seen in many cities anymore.

Williamsport, PA. I love it's scenery and the people have always been pretty decent to me when I roll through.

I just came back from visiting family in Newburgh, IN. Charming town right on the Ohio.
