I could argue that San Francisco has most of those attributes, all in one city (it's diverse, has history, is laid back and can have a smaller town vibe to it, tons of Victorian homes, amazing food, ON the ocean, perfect weather and mountains galore).

That's a good point, although it doesn't get snow like Denver, nor does it have 10000 ft high peaks within an hour's drive.

Southeast white sand beaches, Northeast diversity, Richmond's layout/infrastructure, and New Orleans history, food, architecture, and women...Sounds like a pretty perfect city to me

Impossible to combine elements of all four, but it was fun playing.
Agree with that one except I would rather have the Climate of Honolulu to keep the scenery green!

New York for it's diversity, transportation, attitude and vibe

Montréal for the above reasons, plus the language aspect

Los Angeles for the weather

New Orleans for the food and joie de vivre

From basically the four corners of the U.S.
NYC for density, architecture and culture.
Seattle for scenery, greenery and low crime.
LA for more scenery and adding on even more culture.
Miami for perfect beaches and water temps.
