Yay! Props for Salt Lake! My city! And truly an underrated gem. Every time I see downtown Salt Lake I say it's such a beautiful city, and it is.

I tend to prefer cities that are less talked about. There is something valuable in being underrated and under-talked-about.

People do tend to act like LA and New York (along with a few other major cities) are the only two cities on earth and I get tired of it.

Some of my favorite cities that are rarely mentioned, or if they are it's disparagingly -

Salt Lake City and the greater Salt Lake area, of course
Park City, Utah
Heber City, Utah
Logan, Utah
Page, Arizona
Flagstaff, Arizona
Sedona, Arizona - I don't know if it's a city, but it's beautiful
Tucson, Arizona
Albuquerque, New Mexico
Colorado Springs, Colorado
Boulder, Colorado
Telluride, Colorado
Ouray, Colorado
Jackson, Wyoming
Whitefish, Montana
Big Fork, Montana
Boise, Idaho
Coeur d'Alene, Idaho
McCall, Idaho
Spokane, Washington
Anacortes, Washington
Astoria, Oregon
Laguna Beach, California
Oceanside, California (yeah, I know it's part of San Diego, but I had to mention it)
La Jolla, California (same here)
Sitka, Alaska
Juneau, Alaska
San Antonio, Texas - maybe it's mentioned a lot, but I still want to
Minneapolis, Minnesota
Rochester, Minnesota
Omaha, Nebraska
St. Louis, Missouri
Tulsa, Oklahoma
Little Rock, Arkansas
Fayetteville, Arkansas
Louisville, Kentucky
Indianapolis, Indiana
Savannah, Georgia
Buffalo, New York
Albany, New York
Hartford, Connecticut

I'm sure there are others.

So many beautiful, charming cities are overlooked.

No... get used to it, instead of actually contributing...you can always stir up a bees nest...that's always fun...but I'm too politically correct to do that.

Here are some pics of Albuquerque for people that dont know too much about what the city looks like---

Albuquerque Film Studios and new retail/business being built on the new Mesa Del Sol project

NE Heights neighborhood

Rio Grande and the Bosque(worlds largest cottonwood forest

around the University/Nob Hill area

downtown neighborhoods

ABQ Downs


from the top of the volcano looking west---looks like your in Nebraska from this view

if you havent seen enough of Albuquerque you can see around town by watching the tv series Breaking Bad(AMC),In Plain Sight(USA),Easy Money(CW Network) they are all filmed in ABQ and show various points of the city.
Nice pictures and a city I wouldn't mind visiting in the future.
