I would say San Fran and Seattle were very beautiful.

Default Montevallo, AL

Montevallo is a small town just outside of Birmingham, Alabama. The actual population is very small, but the University of Montevallo provides for a higher population during school session. There are large farms on the outskirts of town, and within town, local buisnesses that have withstood time. The University itself holds the real beauty for me. The school collects rare trees and even offers tree tours.

  4. New York City - New York's skyline is breath taking especially if you seen it in 2008; it's skyline has changed immensely
  5. Los Angeles - in it's own way is beautiful; most of you won't agree with me because you might view L.A. in another way
I agree with you on Los Angeles. Sure, it's not the most beautiful city for the air, but I've seen some pictures of the LA skyline on a clear day and the mountains in the background. I think LA is beautiful for the sprawl. It's got so many unique areas. Downtown, West Hollywood, Malibu, Santa Monica. Not to mention the view of Downtown from McArthur Park. And I think all the streets lined with palm trees is pretty cool too.

My opinion on the US' most beautiful cities:

Seattle- The skyline with Mt. Rainier in the backdrop and Elliot Bay is absolutely amazing.

Los Angeles- Look above ^^

Omaha- I also love the sprawl of Omaha too. Plus it's downtown is pretty nice. And the Old Market with the brick streets is really neat. What I love about the Omaha skyline is that the none of the buildings seem to really outshine the others. And also the city didn't go skyscraper crazy and build a tall building that is out of scale with the others.

New York City- From the bridges to the Art Deco buildings to the wide, building lined avenues. NYC is definately beautiful.

There are others too, but I'm too tired to list them all

I haven't been to SLC, Seattle, or Denver but here's a list out of all of the ones I've been in so far.

1. San Francisco-The natural setting is what makes it. Also the Victorian architecture is nice.
2. Boston-The narrow streets and harbor setting are nice. Plus all the historic sites.
3. NYC-Central Park is probably the most gorgeous place in the world in spring, fall, or right after a winter snow.
4. Santa Barbara, Ca-Classic California beach setting.
5. Philadelphia-I was surprised at how gorgeous Philly is. The area around independence hall is nice as well as the area near the Museum of Art. City hall is great and there are tons of quirky/artsy areas that make wandering through the city interesting.
6. Savannah/Charleston-It's the southern charm I guess.
7. Washington D.C.-I haven't really explored much of D.C. except for along the mall. What I have seen is nice.
8. San Antonio, Tx-The area near the Riverwalk and Alamo is pretty cool.

I can't say anything about Chicago, Seattle, SLC, Denver, New Orleans, etc. And I drove through Albequerque at night.
