I believe that you have satelite cities mixed up with suburbs...suburbs don't have downtown uptowns and midtowns and skyscrapers business towers , sorry but your opinion is wrong about Santa Ana and Anaheim Cali...if it's walks like a city and talks like a city it's a City.

True, true. I almost NEVER hear anything about AK unless ESPN is talking about the SEC, lol. A lot of state capitals seem like really nice, albeit unknown places to live (OKC, Sacramento, Boise, Des Moines, Indianapolis, Richmond, Raliegh). That's why I like positive threads like this about medium-sized cities, because so many interesting places are left in the lurch (Corpus Christi, Louisville, Cincinnati and of course, Hampton Roads being non-capital examples). So often you only hear the negative if it isn't a city in the top 20 population.

I honestly haven't been to any of the cities originally posted with exception of stopping to get gas in Savannah on the way down to Florida.... But since I never hear a lot of negative things about them, I think it's safe to say these cities are all undiscovered gems that probably aren't overly commercialized and having an air of fakery about it. You might not find a Hard Rock Cafe in any of these mentioned cities, but I bet you can find a lot of really nice mom and pop establishments. They seem down to earth, you know?

That's a great picture too

Spokane Washington seems really cool. Louisville, KY looks interesting as well.

Fort Worth, Texas is a beautiful city with a surprisingly active downtown nightlife.

Las Cruces & Albuquerque, NM are overlooked and very beautiful with the mountainous backdrop.

Montgomery, AL also has a nice small skyline next to the Alabama River and lots of history

Power and light district
Great museums
GREAT CITY

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


Might have missed some. I just worked my way across the map.
Scranton, PA...The city is surrounded by mountains with everything from waterfalls and scenic areas; to ski slopes, shopping centers and concert venues.

Scranton also possesses some beautiful Victorian and other pre-modern architectural gems. Along with a canyon, replete with a waterfall, in a central city park.
