For me, I think I'd do:

--Los Angeles' Weather & Beaches
--New Orleans' Culture, Vibe, Arts and Architecture
--Atlanta's Affordability and Business Climate
--and Chicago's Public Transit & Diversity

What about you? Let me know your thoughts

Ciao

Seattle: Scenery/topography, skyline, downtown, and good food.
Albuquerque: perfect year round sunny climate and low cost of living
Montreal: European charm & ambiance, good nightlife, great subways
San Diego: Laid back and nice beaches

Impossible to combine elements of all four, but it was fun playing.

Washington, DC: Some of the most beautiful women in the country, especially the black girls Comprehensive yet simple (Easy to figure out) Metro system (Subway/Bus), the cleanliness of the city, the widespread Greco-Roman/Neo-Classical/Egyptian Revival/Queen Anne/Second French Empire/Victorian/Georgian Revival/Federalist/Colonial architecture, the National Mall, White House/U.S. Capitol/Supreme Court Building, government/public sector/bio-tech/IT/Military job market, the lovely spring weather coupled with the Tidal Basin cherry blossoms, BWI Airport, the university/college system, the Washington Redskins for football, the Capitols for hockey, DC United for soccer, and the massive diagonal boulevards.

Portland, Oregon: Beautifully lush inner-city neighborhoods with craftsman homes, garden/modern apartments, and bungalows, the topography, the bike-friendly culture, the weird funky vibe, laid-back culture, high quality of life, lush fall foliage during autumn, affordability, the great air-quality, and the extensive light rail system.

New York City: The Brooklyn brownstones and limestones, the abundant Tudor Revival architecture of Forest Hills in Queens, sheer racial/ethnic diversity, overwhelming abundance of restaurants and shopping, vibrant 24/7 nightlife, all of the old school Art Deco/Beaux Arts/Neo-Gothic skyscrapers, Gothic cathedrals, diverse economy, massive uniform taxi fleet, Grand Central Station for commuter rail and inter-state rail travel, the street grid system, street and haute fashion scene, Broadway, City Hall, the Bronx Zoo, the Municipal Building, the hand-crafted pizza/Italian beef/bodega/deli culture, the exciting winter snowfall (Parts of the NYC looks romantically beautiful with snow!), the various bridges, the New York Yankees for baseball, and its amazing parks.

Miami: Very warm tropical weather from mid-May to early-September, warm sandy beaches on the Atlantic, vibrant Hispanic/Latino/Caribbean community, the business climate, the beautiful Brazilian girls, massive seaports, giant music festivals, and the Miami Heat for basketball.

The local accent/dialect can be a cross between the DC, Boston, and Queens accents/dialects
