Dont think "world class beaches" around there can match to florida, california, chicago or orvirginia beaches...

Right now i trying to think of a state, i leave choosing city for bit later.
Ever been, or just trying to stir the pot? And yes I have been to Florida, California, Chicago, Virginia, as well as The Carolinas, Cape Cod, Gulf Coast as well as many of the other beaches around the country. I would put West Michigans beaches against any of them. You asked for suggestions, I gave one. Don't like it? Then move on, no need to get snippy and condescending.

Just another troll trying to get a flame thread going it appears.

No, Chicago does not have ugly architecture. It has some of the best modern architecture in the world.

I bet youve also been told that there is oceanfront property in Arizona.

Do yourself a favor and visit Chicago sometime, you may end up falling in love with it and never leaving, like many before you.

Yep, Chicago isn't even close to being ugly.

In defense of Cleveland: The city has a bygone-era, industrial aura that can be quite appealing. They've done some cool things downtown with the bridges and the Flats. I remember visiting Cleveland one time - I arrived at night. The city was in the distance, and as I headed up the freeway, there where antique-looking smokestacks belching colorful flames into the air. I felt like I was on the set of Blade Runner with Harrison Ford about to whizz by in one of those flying cars.

Some of the older neighborhoods around Cleveland are beautiful too, like Shaker Heights. Unfortunately because of the subprime debacle, the city is being severely challenged right now - but they will overcome.

Dude sounds a little naive, a city like Chicago may eat him up.
The city is not the suburbs. ( I know... duh )

Well I wouldn't suggest to a young woman to hop a greyhound and head to
L.A. to follow her dreams either.
