Kansas City has a great art museum. Country Club Plaza and Westport are pleasant.

Reno is a great place, easy 1 hour drive to South Lake Tahoe, beautiful mountains, of course Reno is commonly ignored because of Las Vegas, and its close proximaty to Sacramento, San Fran, it is though getting a NBA D League team and an Triple A baseball team so maybe that will help promote it more!!!

Yet due to the continuous flow of these cities into Los Angeles, they are often ignored and not well known. Los Angeles is like the giant tree casting a shadow over Anaheim and Santa Ana. I'm curious if people from outside California have heard of Anaheim and Santa Ana because in my experience they usually haven't been, so have you heard of these two cities?

Of course! Who doesn't know Disneyland is in Anaheim? They both seem like giant suburbs - I personally would never call them cities, despite their population.

Choose a city (or two, or however many you want) from the list and give them compliments.

Some frequently-ignored cities:
-Spokane
-Boise
-Reno
-Salt Lake City
-Albuquerque
-El Paso
-Tulsa
-Kansas City
-Cincinnati
-Buffalo
-Rochester
-Hartford (CT)
-Savannah (GA)
-Memphis

1.Spokane..Beautful Surrounding Good Intrastructure
2.Boise....Beautful Surrounding and Beautful City
3.Reno...Largest little city in the world Lited Up City Beautful Surroundings
4. Salt Lake City...Surrounding Mountains Beautful Professional Sports
5.Albuquerque...Beautful Surrounding Mountains
6. El Paso...Beautful Surrounding Mountains and Easy Mexico Travel
7.Tulsa.....World Class Icons Bok Arena..Philbrook..Riverside Park..Route66
8.Kansas City..Rated A World Class City In The Lastest Rating 1999
9.Cincinnati....Great Suburban areas especially in Kentucky
10.Buffalo...Suburban area in Canada some of the most beautful in World
11.Rochester.....Is a beautful city however without any Mountains
12.Hartford......Close to NYC and New Jersey...
13.Savannah....Location Location near Charleston SC and Atlanta GA
14. Memphis....Music and Some Really Good Food
15.Omaha...Building Up Downtown
16. Des Moines... Great Skyline For A Metro Area Of 600,000 People
17.Tucson ....Beautful City with Mountains and etc.
19.Corpus Christi...The only Big City In Texas On The Ocean
20. Oklahoma City.....Bricktown 1 Mile Long Canal and Professional Sports
Since when did Buffalo become the suburban area of Canada? Buffalo is a city you know. They even have pro sports teams!

That's not what it said. It said "Suburban area in Canada some of the most beautful in World" meaning Buffalo's suburban areas in Canada are some of the most beautiful.
