Actually you missed quite a few....Washington, Houston, Seattle, Philadelphia....How did you put S.D but omit all of these?

DC is nothing special IMO, Seattle is wet and rainy 10 months out of the year, and Houston and Philly- who WOULD even Want to live there?

1) DC nothing special? It's just our nations capital and a US cultural center. I'm sure it might have more to offer than a few of those cities listed (in some peoples' opinion).

2) Some people like the weather in Seattle just fine.

3) A significant portion of the population live in or near the areas of Houston and Philadelphia, so I'm guessing a couple million?

Some poll about living ANYWHERE (I mean how can you wonder how there are so many votes for other)...it's quite a weak poll in my opinion, seeing as it's just a diluted version of some of the better ones on here.

One of the greatest things I've learned from CD forum is that there are a wide range of views (even despite any sort of detectable bias). Everyone is different.

I don't even know how to respond to this. DC is an international city, a cultural and political powerhouse....It's not rainy and wet 10 months out of the year in Seattle, despite stereotypes...millions live in Houston and millions live in Philadelphia, so obviously they are not the holes that you make them out to be.

I would choose Anchorage Alaska. I would not want to live in a city with 300K + pop.

From the given choices, I chose Boston. It's a nice-sized city with tons of jobs and great public transportation.

Check out the Philadelphia forum. Lots of people love living there - both in the city and the suburbs.

Burlington, Vermont in the Summer
Charleston, South Carolina in the Winter.

I can tell you one thing as it was listed, it sure as hell would not be Atlanta!

I lived outside of Philadelphia in Mount Laurel,NJ for 10 years and loved every minute of it.
