What three dynamic cities would you pick for an outsider to visit that would represent the U.S. best or well?

I chose NYC, SF and the Big Easy. All great bustling walkable urban centers with great architecture and great cultural offerings. Personally, I think NYC and SF will dominate this poll. I picked New Orleans because I think many might be curious since Katrina. Also, this gives a taste of the Northeast, the South and the West.

It's hard with just three; four would make it easier. I said Boston, for the true east coast feel outside of NY; Minneapolis, a great midwestern city; and other being Denver, a great city in the intermountain west. I'd add a California city if I could.

My intention was to make this poll difficult and cause people to really think about their choices.

I noticed you didn't place Atlanta or any of the Texas cities as options on your poll. Not that I would have chosen any of them, but expect complaints about that. Justa heads up.

NYC, DC, and Honolulu.
NYC for just the heck of it, I mean the Statue of Liberty etc...
DC for the Museums, the capitol...I mean its an attraction to learn about the Government of one of the most powerful and influential nations in the world right? I saw piles of Japanese when i went.
Honolulu for the scenery and beach... San Fran was almost my vote but the bridge isn't that cool, and what to see a whole bunch of gays shaking their butt? a nice Chinatown and some cool museums and history. But being of a tourist mentality being at one of the worlds best beaches would please me more(maybe key west in addition)... uhhh but yeah I mean the view and the beach would be a lot more fun for people then just another city. Hawaii is probably very obscure to foreigners... I wish Dallas has a better tourist industry... nothing to see here -_-, some lousy(well not bad but nothing to kill your self over) museums and a state fair...big city things like amusements parks and restaurants and stuff like that can be found locally... nothing really unique.
oh well
^
yeah, Texas is famous world wide, people still think we use horses... I bet people are curious to see whats down here, but uhh... nothing they expect... lol
NYC
DC
Honolulu

I picked the three cities that I thought would show off America's diversity the best, New York City, New Orleans, and Seattle. New York because of it's prosperity and all of the different ethnic groups that call it home. New Orleans because of its architecture and vivid history and cultural aspects. Seattle because of it's surroundings and relitive calm compared to my other two choices.

In the words of Truman Capote...

The only real cities in America are New York, San Francisco and New Orleans, everywhere else is just Cleveland.

I picked Chicago (because there is more to the U.S. in terms of a big city than NYC), New Orleans (because of its history and uniqueness), and Washington D.C. (for its history and museums).

I picked New York, Chicago and San Fran. They're a pretty good mix.
