This thread is made in collaboration with my "The Most Exciting State" thread.

When you vote, vote for:
A) Amenities
B) Entertainment
C) Culture
D) Do not necessarily vote based on the city's population

Which of America's 30 Most Visited Cities is the most fun, hip, exciting city in the country?

My vote goes to Austin, Texas.
Close followers would be: Chicago, LA, NYC, San Francisco, San Diego, Seattle, and Atlanta

Don't mean to be rude, but how on earth could Austin be anywhere near as exciting (let alone more exciting) than NYC, Chicago, LA???

Austin, for it's size, wins my vote. I have gone to NYC and just felt, boxed in, in an urban wonderland. In Austin, the Live Music Capital of the World, I spent the day doing many things which I enjoyed. I enjoyed Austin more than any of the cities on the list.
I am not trying to talk down NYC.
NYC would be in my top five or ten.
But, not my first choice.
It is too busy and over the top for me.

Well geeze.. thanks for not adding Albuquerque, its exciting in lots of ways... Culture, Entertainment, Shopping, Hiking, Biking and Development. Thats not even half..there is way more, it even has a very good population, a thousand off of atlanta.

Uhm, I got my list from Forbes' 30 Most Visited United States Cities.
If Albuquerque were in the top 30 most visited in the country.
It would be there.
But it's not. :]

Well one thing you will find Albuquerque on is the best city for business
It has always been on the top 10, but i think i jumped off the drawing board.

But.
Is Business exciting.
I don't think so.
This thread is almost like.
Which city is the best city to take a vacation in?
Or which city has the most to offer?
thread.
Not "Which city could I establish a small business in, and become successful"
Albuquerque would certainly be a choice.. then.

What? Small business? Just because albuquerque is smaller you think it doesnt have any large corporation jobs! of course it has exciting jobs.. other wise we wouldnt have gained 40,000 people in the past 3 years.
Albuquerque has more to offer than most of those cities on that list do..
