The OP wants to know how the rest of America lives. Why do you keep directing him to all the big cities? That's NOT the country. It's the worst parts of the country.

When did the political forums become the looking for an extended date arena? I have to give you props for having the nads to post in such a weirdly bizarre fashion that you want someone to take you in, and ages must be between this and that, just in case.

Because the cities are vibrant and where most people live. OP is free to clarify what he wants, but given his post there is no reason to direct him somewhere that shuts down at 8 or 10PM.

Define "vibrant"?

I find them full of death, insanity, hedonism, and narcissism.

These would have been better choices:

NYC
Chicago
LA
DC
Houston
Dallas
Miami
Seattle
Boston
Atlanta - meh, probably about the same
San Fransisco
Denver

Huge cities are not the answer!

Like for Los Angeles...screw LA. the beach scene Venice, Santa Monica, Hermosa, Manhattan, Marina Del Rey, and Torrance. Now that would have been an exciting week of sites, sounds, people, and food.

San Francisco? No No No... Santa Barbara, Monterey, Santa Cruz, Solvang...etc.

Seattle? Yea, that's about the best there is up there, though only a skip and a hop to Vancouver, which is a rockin place.

You get my drift though.

The murder rate in Detroit is 55 per 100K residents.
In Chicago it's 14-18 per 100K residents.

It's amazing that I lived in Chicago for 46 years and never once was shot. I have family that has lived in the city for four generations, and lives there still, and not one has ever been shot.

You know not of what you speak.

Those are all basically included in the LA metro. Manhattan beach is what, 20 minutes from LA?
