There are so many great port cities in the U.S. South/Southeast that it's mind boggling. So out of all them, which one of these cities is your favorite?

New Orleans would be my favorite because of the French Quarter. Next I would say Houston because i live here and know the city very well and thus always have a great time here. After that I would say Miami because it seems like a very sexy city

I'm going with Norfolk, because I love the Tidewater region.

Savannah. That city is absolutely beautiful with the riverfront, many squares with fountains and statues, Spanish moss lined streets, Forsyth Park, old architecture blending with the Savannah River Bridge in the background, the tall churches and victorian houses. Tybee Island and Fort Pulaski nearby are nice too.

I have to go with Charleston, SC.

Savannah is good for photographers, and New Orleans is good for partiers, but I find both cities to be too dirty instead of "historic" (for my taste) and they both have crime issues I'd just as soon not deal with (I have enough of that here).

Charleston (I'm talking about the historic/shopping districts) really is like stepping into another world. The architecture is great, it's clean, and so long as you're not there during the height of the tourist season, it's manageable to get around.

Never been to any, but I voted for Miami. It's the one I would want to visit most on that list, with Charleston a close second.

Charleston is like a living museum . Very unique , artsy and eccentric . Probably America's best preserved city . That's why I fell in love with it . St Augustine FL. and Savannah Ga. are also very nice .

Among people living in the southeast and who never intend to leave the southeast, if you asked them what city they would most prefer to live in, I think the answer you would hear most frequently is Charleston. I lived in Atlanta for several years and I met many people there who hoped/dreamed of moving to Charleston.
