Atlanta: For the cheap cost of living and excellent airport

1. LA's weather, location, beaches, natural scenery, entertainment options, outdoor activities, women, food, educational opportunities, nightlife, theme parks.

2. San Diego's cleaness, beaches, natural scenery, zoos, women.

3. San Fran's hills, compactness

4. Any city that has the lowest cost of living.

Heck my city is already close perfect, damn that cost of living though.

Lumière (My perfect city with its own name) is basically a Northeastern city (Overall culture, transportation, most of the cityscape, consistent walkability, density, street fashion, and grittiness) with all four seasons (Albeit with a seasonal tropical climate during the summer), the beaches and distinct Caribbean vibe of Miami, and the funkiness, cleanliness (Especially air quality), casual fashion, and lushness of the Pacific Northwest.
