I live in Bristol, TN. I've been to all the major cities in TN, NC, SC, and KY. Richmond, VA is probably the closest major city I haven't been to.

I consider "major" any city that either hosts a major league team, a Federal Reserve Bank main branch, or is a Top 50 city in terms of either city limit population or MSA population.

*Richmond in terms of never actually stopping (driven through many times).
*Pittsburgh in terms of cities with a major league sports team (drove through once)
*Cleveland in terms of cities with a major league team that I never even driven through (from central MD).

That said, these are interesting cities with lots of attractions to do, and are all legacy cities with lots of history in them with some cool old architecture, museums, as well as having lots of cultural activities (especially Pittsburgh and Cleveland).

Wow, no Milwaukee? You should go.

It took me until 5 years ago to finally go to Indianapolis.

Living in and around Chicago, I've never been to South Bend, Grand Rapids, Green Bay, Cincinnati, Columbus, Des Moines (and I went to college in Iowa).

I'm in Southern California, and the big obvious one is Phoenix. Beyond that, Santa Fe and Salt Lake City.

I have been to Vegas, Denver and every major city in the Pacific Coast states.

Baltimore.

When I lived in Philly, it was only about an 1hr 45min drive. I've driven through it several times on 95, but never actually stepped foot in the city.

I tend to agree with this. In addition, it has a hub airport and at least five Fortune 500 companies.

Some people have an extremely loose definition of "major."

From my spot in West Virginia, the largest city closest to me that I haven't visited would be Richmond Virginia. If Richmond doesn't meet the definition of major city, and to many it doesn't, then Baltimore would be the closest.

I live in the Rochester NY area. I've never been to Toronto or NYC (expect for the airport)

I've never been to Atlanta or Richmond. I've been to DC (hated it), Nashville (it was all right, I guess), and Charleston (lovely, but I'd never want to live there). I have no strong desire to visit ATL or any other big American city as I prefer smaller towns, mountains, and state parks. I'll visit Las Vegas, Santa Fe, and Los Angeles once we make it out West just because I'm a screenwriter and wrote screenplays set in those states. (Usually, I wrote about my home state.) I will have to meet a producer in LA after Thanksgiving to talk about the TV series I'm working on with him and his other writers. I'm excited to finally see Hollywood but that's it. I'll be glad to get back to small town CA after that mtg, I'm sure!
