Some U.S. cities are close to other large and medium sizen areas, while others are very remote. This thread is dedicated to cities that are good or even great, but are remote in terms of being close to other cities (medium size to large in population). Think for a moment and consider which cities fit this description. Also, does a city in a remote location make it less desireable place to live or consider living in?

People are mentioning Portland and Seattle, yet they are very close to each other, and Vancouver is close by.

I would say:

Boise, Albuquerque, Denver, Salt Lake City, Minneapolis, and obviously Honolulu.

Perhaps it's relative proximity, but I always think of the one in Oregon when I see "Portland."
