SF isn't considered a sun belt city.

What exactly is a "sunbelt" city? Don't dog me, I really don't know! Especially seeing that San Diego is on the list and I'm born and raised there, and Atl and I live an hour outside of it,lol. Who knew?!

Sunbelt cities are cities that people flock to for their warm weather.

Anyway, I'd say either San Diego (for it's pleasant climate, nice beaches, and friendly atmosphere), Atlanta (for it's lush green surroundings, affordability, and friendly people), or Houston (for it's affordability and things to do).

I agree, SF is not a sun belt city, although I voted for it.

SF blows all of these cities out of the water IMO, even though it isn't really considered "sun-belt".

Thank you for the clarification

I would also add that these cities tend to be characterized by having lots of auto oriented development and sprawl and suburban since most of them didn't really start becoming big until after WWII and much of their development patterns reflect that.
