Just curious what 5 cities are in the plans for a visit in the near future for the first time.

Dallas, TX
Austin, TX
Jacksonville, FL
Gainesville, FL
Fort Lauderdale, FL

For some reason lately Dallas and Austin look very appealing. I have been looking at the different neighborhoods online and they both seem very lush with lots of trees.

Austin seems to have some really nice scenery with the hills, trees and rivers.

I really like Florida and want to go back there again. I spent a month there and really would like to visit again.

Really clean, orderly and lush state and I really like the coastline on both sides of the state with nice, warm water.

Portland, OR
Cincinnati, OH
San Francisco, CA
Pittsburgh, PA
Salt Lake City, UT

All pretty scenic cities that I haven't been to. I was born in Florida, and hate being in that place, and while I've been to Dallas/Houston...I have absolutely no desire to go to Austin. I recently visited Minneapolis which for a long time was the #1 city I wanted to visit, and I loved it.

Well strictly looking at "new" cities to visit, there aren't a lot of major cities I haven't been to. Basically just ten I would consider, but I could only narrow it down to 6 lol:

Columbus - Seems like a lot of potential. Newer city, strong university base and a state capital.

SLC - Punches above its weight, particularly in rail-based transit.

Grand Rapids - A nice alternative in Michigan (i've really only spent time in Detroit and AA) and Art Prize is on my bucket list.

Omaha - Punches way above its weight. Also would like to see Warren Buffet's home/hood.

Albuquerque/Santa Fe - Never been to the state. Would like the artsy vibe and the drastic change in scenery for me.

Des Moines - Yet another above its weight puncher and receiving lots of acclaim lately.

For fun I'm throwing in a top 5 that I've technically been to but not terribly familiar with.

Phoenix - By far the largest metro that I haven't been to since I was a little kid.

San Diego - Have never been to the actual city...just spent time in La Jolla. Many people I know love it here.

Denver - Similarities to MSP and Seattle, two cities that I LOVE!

Charlotte - It's been about 15 years since I visited. Never seen the urban renewal or light rail.

Buffalo - I have only passed through on my visits to Niagara Falls. Always seemed to have good bones and there's nice stories coming out about its tech renaissance.

Jax? Interesting. It's probably a lot like Gilbert. Gainesville is basically a medium-sized college town. I liked it for college but not a lot to visit.

Yeah, I visited MSP for the first time last year and I liked it so much that I went again. Prior to my first visit it had been on the top of my list for a long time...did not disappoint.

Cleveland or Cincinnati (can't decide which)
New Orleans
Charleston, SC
Savannah, GA
Louisville, KY

I am sure I would find much to love as a visitor in each city.

We should travel together. Montreal sounds great. Finally went to Hawaii (Kauai) for the first time last week- (it was wonderful) but Honolulu doesn't hold much appeal to me so we'll have to arm wrestle or part ways for the final destination
