Chicago (I was there very briefly as a teenager), Philadelphia, and Atlanta.

Do you remember which part(s) of Chicago you managed to see?

Tomorrow is my last day here in Chicago. Didn't stray too far from The Loop because I'm carless. What I have seen is pretty cool. Walked up Clark Street to River North for dinner Tuesday Night. Also did Millennium Park, Buckingham Fountain, Lakeshore Drive, and SkyDeck as well. Didn't get down to the Navy Pier because the weather's been unsettled.

Overall I've enjoyed my visit, but I could never picture myself living here. Not a fan of the climate, the cost of living is too high, and the amount of crime is ridiculous.

Thanks for the update and places visited. My main goal when visiting there is the architecture tour, as well as just checking out some of the better known urban neighborhoods.

I agree that it would be unlikely that I would ever find myself moving there though regardless of how much I enjoy the city.

No "downtown" I absolutely must visit before I die, but of the ones I haven't seen yet, downtown Chicago would be cool though I've seen it from the air. Chicago overall is a rough city, but the downtown skyline is beautiful and I'd like to visit the Sears Tower and the lakefront.

I think downtown Houston has some nice skyscrapers. I personally prefer either very modern skylines like Dallas and Houston or truly historic cities like Savannah and Charleston. Don't like older skylines like Boston or Cleveland.

One city I really would like to visit in detail and not just pass through would be Nashville, but not because of downtown specifically. At least 90% of the music I listen to is produced in Nashville given the only kinds of music I listen to are country and contemporary Christian music. Visiting the Grand Ole Opry, Music Row and the Country Music Hall of Fame are most definitely on my bucket list.

I've been to the vast majority of cities mentioned here, and have no motivation to see the ones I'm missing. I generally HATE large cities and find them to all be pretty much alike.

Except New Orleans. It's the one city I adored. Of course I never left the French Quarter and spent most of my time on or near Bourbon Street. It was an endless party with the best food and alcohol I've ever had. The people were beyond awesome and it was just so much hedonistic fun. I'd go back every year if I could.
