I like this comment. I can understand judging a place by its climate or terrain. That makes more sense to me. I couldn't move to a hot humid city because I can't take constant humid weather so I would try to avoid a place that had that type of tropical climate all year 'round.

One could to offer me a million dollars, a ferrari, a box of the finest cuban cigars, a date with a Victorias Secret model, a game of one-on-one with Michael Jordan, and a day with the Stanley Cup, and that still wouldn't be enough to get me to live in Fayetteville, NC.

Ditto Montgomery Alabama and Jackson Mississippi.

There are so many European ethnicities represented here, it's crazy; and these groups hold on to their heritage. Every week in the summer there is a festival for a different European ethnicity. There are also Slovenian Sausage shops scattered in certain neighborhoods, a Little Italy, a Slavic Village neighborhood, Polish shops and restaurants, a Hungarian community. One walk or drive through our Cultural Gardens will tell you of the diversity of ethnicities represented here.
That wasnt my observation and the data seems to back me up. Ill grant you Cleveland has a very vibrant Jewish community and at one time it was a spot for immigration from European destinations. But there doesnt seem to be a steady source of immigrants from anyone place anymore. For its size, it gets an unusually low number of international immigrants.

Any city in the South. Too conservative and religious for me. I'll pass.

I would really not like to live anywhere north of Baltimore. Pittsburgh will be an EXTREME stretch for a northern city.

But my absolute worst nightmare for a city climate wise would be Buffalo, Syracuse, Rochester, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Milwaukee, Chicago, or Cleveland. In fact I don't know how anyone can enjoy living in Buffalo or Syracuse. Aside from family connections there cannot possibly be anything in those cities that are not found in warmer places too. I honestly would rather live in Puerto Rico than in upstate New York if I absolutely was left with no other choice. I don't know of anyone from upstate New York who lived in a warmer climate for a while EVER want to go back there. Syracuse is the snowiest city in the United States and the average lows in January is 15 degrees. I don't know how a snowbound city like Minneapolis ranks as very "livable". North Dakota also is a very desolate, frigid place. I can handle heat, I don't mind Las Vegas, Phoenix, Miami or Orlando or New Orleans in the summer, but I cannot do cold and snow. Simply cannot.

Detroit- modern ghost town

Lexington, Louisville, Cincinatti, Nashville- dont like the upland south, west of the Appalachians (i think of hillbilly whiteboys, when i think of this region)

San Francisco- too much gays and hipsters

Portland, Seattle- dont like the Pacific NW, also still too many hipsters

El Paso- too many mexicans, might aswell be in mexico

Pittsburgh- too isolated

Upper Midwest (Minnesota, northen sections of michigan, and wisconsin) - Tooo cold

Appalachians- Hillbillies

Most of the west outside Southern Cali, as well as the Las Vegas, and Phoenix areas - too isolated and weird.

Syracuse's average snowfall totals get skewed by parts of the metro that get higher totals than others. There are actually people that have moved back from the South and that enjoy living here. I think people forget that the area is prepared for the snow and that the weather isn't cut and dry here. For some reason, I don't know if you have been up here or if it was to get a reaction, but I don't know if I would go as far as saying I'd live in PR for certain quality of life reasons. I get that it is an opinion though.
