Florida: Miami Beach although it is polarizing as well because of the extreme wealth and superficiality of the place. In Ohio it is mostly likely Yellow Springs or Columbus.

I always got the impression it was Houston first, Dallas second, Austin/San Antonio in third/fourth, and then Ft. Worth last.

Yeah, Miami Beach is pretty polarizing. People love it or loathe it. Key West seems to get a lot more love from everybody.

I never got the impression that it was Houston first; too many people complain about the landscape for it to be the best liked city. Dallas seems much more liked than Houston. Either way, Fort Worth is largely overlooked so it's hard for me to see how it would be first.

Not from Texas so my opinion doesn't hold much weight by I always viewed Dallas and Houston as equals, distinct cities with unique characteristics but neither one clearly superior.

Hardly anyone outside of Texas knows about Fort Worth unless they have family there or have visited there. Those unfamiliar with it usually think of the airport - DFW. It is a nice city to visit though.

Dallas seems a bit more liked from my perspective, largely because it has a better brand and image than Houston. If I had a nickel for every time I've heard Houston is ugly because of its zoning practices and all the refineries...

Sandusky. Everyone loves Cedar Point. The 3 C's hate each other.

I haven't been keeping up with the stats, and I agree in recent years Charleston have been doing well. But, the upstate region been doing well for so long that nobody have notice that about Charleston. Perceptions don't change overnight. I actually know people from this area that have or or still working in the Greenville area,I had a family member who did it for years and came home on the weekends. Don't know anybody from here working in Charleston.

The Upstate really only started gaining economic momentum after BMW came in the 90's so it really hasn't been that long. But I hear you though.
