My favorite is St. Louis, Because two rivers are always better than one.
Then wouldn't the three rivers in Pittsburgh be better than the two in St. Louis?

My husband always says Pgh really just has two rivers; he seems to feel the Ohio is an extension of the Mon/Allegheny.

I voted New Orleans with high hopes that things can turn to the better there. Regardless of the crime and hurricaine, it is a beautiful city full of great ambiance and architecture.

You are very east-coast biased.
Except that none of those cities are on the east coast.

My favorites? Marietta, Ohio. Beautiful, historical little place.
Newell W.Va., home of the Homer Laughlin potttery company.
And East Liverpool, Ohio, across the river, home of the Hall China Co.
