Not impressed: Atlanta, horrendously sterile hybrid city. I was heading into town for an evening of fun and everybody else was heading out of town. The glass boxes let out at 3-4 pm and its a mass exodus, it seemed like the only 2 people left in the city was me and some whino named Leroy.

Where did you read that description? The Inquirer? When were you last in Atlanta - 1985? Was it Atlanta, TX by chance? Sounds like 1980s intown Atlanta...it certainly doesn't describe the current city.

What is a "whino"? Oh...it's a whiny complainer who loves to bash cities that are better than his own.

Worse than I thought: Houston. I was kinda miserable living there. The nightlife downtown is not as cracked up as it should be for a city with 3 million + people. I guess that comes from the fact that the city was built for the outside commuter. Weeknights were slow-dead, even when the Rockets/Astros were in town where it picked up sometimes. Weekends were pretty decent but not happening, unless there was a huge event in town. But I guess the downtown area is built for the "suits" and not for playing. The rest of Houston wasn't much better.

LA would be the second biggest dissapointment, well, downtown Los Angeles. Though there are alot of happenin places and things to do in LA such as Hollywood/Santa Monica, the downtown area being dead at night is a real disappointment (though admittedly, I have yet to go to LA's downtown to party I was told I have no reason to).

Impressed with Denver. The city has a lot of local spirit, especially for the Broncos/Avalance. Sportsbars, clubs everywhere downtown and people show up even if its -0 degrees outside. My expectations of Denver were greatly exceeded when I visited.


your retatarded downtown Los angeles is thriving

Reno was amazing, the people were friendly (many hot women, too) and it was fun walking around the casinos and buildings. I honestly didn't expect much from Reno, but it was very fun walking around there. I didn't want to go back to California, but I had to.

Less impressive: Atlanta, Detroit




Atlanta is just pretty much overrated, and Detroit like one big waste land

impressive: Los Angeles, Seattle, Houston

I Love L.A. it's amazing and vibrant, Seattle my dream city so green and cool, Houston has nice architecture and downtown and affordable prices move there in a heart beat

First of all you RETATARD, downtown LA has historically been a very slow, commuter area. People go in to work, and leave before sundown. My post was regarding my experiences with downtown in the past.

Secondly, LA Live barely opened its doors last night. Thus, I was unable to attend before posting. But Im very excited that downtown LA is beginning to make its large push towards heavy urbanization (heck downtown just recently opened its doors to its first grocery store).

Thirdly, I hope you had permission to post those pictures if you didnt take them because Ive seen those elsewhere.

Now I know its difficult for you to chew gum and walk at the same time, but consider thinking before, and/or, during flamming someone else.
