I don't see Las Cruces as being on that list and I am open to changing my mind if provided with good information.

I would probably ask the same question for Billings, MT.

At least Buffalo is just 30 miles from Niagara Falls if the city should fall short of expectations and Burlington, VT has a very beautiful lakeside setting, so I will not question those.
Trust me, there is no reason to visit Billings, MT. If you're going to visit Montana, Missoula or Bozeman are cities worth visiting but neither deserve to be on this list.

Lots of places in the Midwest, Western portion of Upper Midwest, and some places in Texas not named Dallas, Houston, or Austin.

I've said this exact thing before. Well said.

Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse come to mind specifically. Very underrated cities with lots to offer.

I'd say Indianapolis flies pretty far under the radar. Living in the shadow of the Windy Giant...
