02 eclectic - San Francisco
05 rustic
06 exotic
16 pristine - Seattle
17 tropical - Honolulu
18 huckster - Washington D.C.
20 brawny - Minneapolis

Personally I don't think SF is all that eclectic anymore but I figured it's a "Name That Tune" kind of answer. Same with D.C. When I hear "brawny" I think of the paper towel with the lumberjack on it, so Fargo is really my answer but don't think it fits among bigger cities, so I picked Minneapolis. Honolulu could be either exotic or tropical, but exotic just means culturally unfamiliar and so depends.

No clue then where to go with exotic. Or rustic. Unless "rustic" is a play on the Rust Belt, in which case I'd go with Pittsburgh (Detroit has a response). I'm also really surprised people went with "glamorous" for Los Angeles, though that is again a "Name That Tune" kind of response.

BTW "altitude" isn't an adjective, but with the passage of recreational use maybe Denver is just "high."
