1.) Minneapolis/St. Paul
2.) Boston
3.) Seattle
4.) Milwaukee
5.) Chicago
6.) Pittsburgh
7.) San Francisco
8.) Providence
9.) Lexington
10.) Grand Rapids
So why isn't Omaha on the list???

Default Case's Top Ten

Here it is, folks. My picks for the top ten cities in America.

These, of course, are in no particular order.

1. Atlanta
2. Boston
3. Dallas
4. Washington, DC
5. San Francisco
6. Seattle
7. Houston
8. Chicago
9. Kansas City
10. Phoenix

And there you are.

This is a very good list with a few places one wouldn't expect. Since the topic doesn't apparently name anything terribly specific, it looks like anything goes. So that's a fine choice of cities. And, for a change, one that doesn't include New York City. But this is a refreshing change with Providence and Lexington making that list. You can easily make a top ten list and there are so many deserving cities that get left off.

Orlando should be on most people's lists. The climate is very good year-round, and they've got a pretty good job market. And tourism is red hot!

It also has many undesirable qualities, such as a lack of culture, lack of public transportation, a very cookie-cutter character, etc. Great weather can only take you so far.

What do you mean for a change? It is a FACT that NYC is one of the top cities in America. Anyone who says otherwise is delusional.
