I have transferred planes at the airports of 2 cities which the airlines use as hubs: Atlanta (Delta) and Denver (United). Didn't leave the airport in either city.


Both cities are popular relocation destinations for young adults, who are seeking to move to a major city for its lifestyle as well as career opportunities.


From what I have read on this forum, neither one would hold much appeal for me.

Big blank spot for me: Anything west of the Mississippi except for the West coast. Only exceptions to that are Miami, where I’d like to go one day, and Las Vegas, which I visited couple years ago.

But no burning desire to see Dallas, Houston, Denver, SLC, Phoenix, OKC, Boise, Des Moines, Kansas City, Santa Fe, or other cities in my own big blank spot.

The one I really know nothing about is Chattanooga.

Most cities I have at least a "feel" for, either from driving through it or from reading about it. But the only thing I know about Chattanooga is they have a choo choo.

No idea what the weather is like, what the terrain is like, or what the town is like. For some reason, my guess is it's a hilly, four season town. Probably a good number of people who aren't super wealthy, and maybe a little artsy. But I don't know how I got that impression, so I could be way off.

So many people are missing out on Milwaukee. It's not the biggest or flashiest city but I'm guessing most of you would be pleasantly surprised.

Darn right. And if you are going to Chicago, be aware that Chicagoans go up to Milwaukee frequently and really enjoy it.

I was going to say, the one thing floating in my head after reading all these responses is that people are missing out on Milwaukee. I love that city, lots of character, nice and dense, things to do, pretty, good architecture and friendly people.

Chicagoan here - Milwaukee is the city that reminds me most of Chicago's "feel" (the neighborhoods, not downtown).

I think that's true for a lot of people. And even more so for Hampton Roads. A lot of people have never heard of it, couldn't find it on a map if asked to, and have no idea what the name means. I think most assume the Roads are highways or streets, LOL. Yet roughly 1,800,000 people live there.
