There are definitely beautiful areas in the Texas cities you don't see people recognize on here much.

I wouldn't' say Greenville SC is underrated but obviously not as well known nationally. I'd say it is one of the nicest looking cities that I've seen.

I'll go ahead and plug my college town Clemson too. Forested and hilly area with a nice lake and Blue Ridge in the distance. The landscaping on the campus is fantastic.

Two others that people don't often think about: Birmingham and Nashville. Both have incredible natural assets.

Manchester, NH is a beautiful area. I love the setting on the Merrimack River.

DT Detroit is surprisingly beautiful IMO. Atlanta, Tampa and Cincy are also some underrated visually appealing cities.

Cincy seems really beautiful. I have not yet been, but I would have to say it does feel like it is underrated.

Philadelphia by far.

Sure it has some gritty streets in its core and some of its core neighborhoods.

But Fairmount Park, Boathouse Row, Kelly Dr and the Wissahickhon areas are just beyond gorgeous. Not to mention the esteemed entire NW section of the city is just absolutely pristine, filled with stone mansions and architecture that would just make anyone really feel they were in Europe.

Not to mention the PA suburbs of Philadelphia are quite beautiful as well.

The Main Line and Bucks County is just breath taking. You feel like you are in the English countryside/villages.

I think MANY are unaware of this, and associate Philadelphia with trash and grit, but not all of the city, and certainly not the areas outside the city are like that.

Houston. I actually like how modern and sleek the downtown is - it's at least a nice contrast to the older, more industrial cities I've visited more often.

It's unique among major cities IMO. I think Atlanta in the spring has an underrated beauty.

My overall vote here probably goes to Chattanooga.
