This poll is strange, since most of these cities have at least one amusement park, museums, attractions, malls, parks, fairs, circus, shopping, stores. etc. However, Detroit city proper lacks have a mall (The nearest mall is like 12 miles) and I haven't seen a park either in the city.

I would say Omaha dont even compete with the rest,its just a baby still.

2nd I would say Phoenix, other than sports there really isnt that much there and by the time you drive from one end of the city to the other and find something to do almost your whole day is gone, there is really no point in going to Phoenix.

I'm surprised that Phoenix as large as it is has never built a Six Flags or Busch Gardens type of amusement park. Although they are down nationwide in attendance i would think with a metro of around 4.2 million could support one.

I'd hardly consider it awesome. Same with the electronic festival. I'd say it wins because people who don't live in the city, hardly ever go to the city. I'd say that is a lack of amusement by the polls standards.

Ya I agree, except for maybe Detroit, but as I have said millions of times before, we are growing.
