Who the hell voted Salt Lake City?! WTF?!

In Salt Lake City, world-class skiing is less than half an hour away just outside of town. Not much further away and you got Park City!

Salt Lake City is only a couple hours from the Unita range, full of hiking and other outdoors opportunities. You can also find the same stuff in the Wasatch, right along the eastern edge of the city.

Not to mention downtown is very nice.

When I was last in Salt Lake City I was bored its not that exciting. And there talking cities not the state of Utah. No Utah is not boring but Salt Lake City is.

Wow i am surprised to hear that Phoenix is a boring city, I live in southern New Jersey in a boring small town only hang outs are Super Walmart since its open 24 hours Our small Mall and the chain restaurants,(Applebees,Texas Road House,Buffalo Wild wings,etc) were also the poorest county in Nj highest birth rates and std rates as someone stated it seems like everyone is having babies out here and working at temp service jobs. Its quite sad when someone is under 25 on their 3 or 4th child with no career. I would take Phoenix in a heartbeat over where i live at. and i know a few people who went to Phoenix on vacation and they love it only complaint was the illegal Aliens.


I could see those cities on those lists being boring if someone lived there for their whole lives or for a few years and become burnt out. Or someone who moved to a bigger city and move to one of those cities. But someone who lived in a small town their whole live and decided to move there i can imagine it being fun.

Good point. Nothing spells excitement like a single, oddly placed skyscraper built on petro-cash.

There isn't a ton to do there unless you like to dry pottery in the sun, golf in January or bake Crystal Meth. Phoenix is generally where you go if you can't afford Southern California, and it migrates the worst of that state with none of the things that make it great (viz. Mediterranean climate and beach). I was never more amused / horrified by the future of American culture than when I spent 2 weeks in Scottsdale for work......

What horribly false generalizations made by you in addition to it being just a stupid post. I just can't take you seriously, let alone your opinions on what makes up Phoenix since you believe that your two weeks in Scottsdale qualifies you to speak about the overall day to day goings on in the metro. I've lived in Phoenix for two years and there are tons of things that I haven't done here yet.

It amazes me how people who constantly complain about other cities never bother to mention all of the things they actually do in their own cities (trash talking on CD doesn't count).
