Who cares? What does one cities politics have to do with whether or not its a good city to visit? I seriously cannot believe that is a criteria people use when vacationing somewhere, its so incredibly close minded. And to vote for or against a city just b/c it's considered "liberal" or "conservative" is ridiculous. People voted for these cities b/c they are great cities to visit regardless on whether or not you agree with the political scene there.

I agree...I was mocking that attitude in my Salt Lake post

Maybe they will see the poll and all move there.

Just kidding. They wouldn't be the right choices for me, but I'm glad the people who DO live there feel their cities are special.

Man, talk about disparity in the brackets! On one side you ended up with the three finalists being NYC, Chicago, and Boston. On the other side, you ended up with San Diego, Frisco, and Honolulu??? I like all of those cities (though I've never been to Honolulu), but it seems bogus to have three of the most urban, vibrant cities in the US all in one bracket.

The entire poll is incredibly stupid. Although I will admit Boston and San Francisco are my two favorite American cities. Go Red Sox!!!

I don't see what is so "bogus" or "stupid" about this list at all. All of the cities listed are some of the most popular to visit and vacation in. I don't get how some of you can say how you like these cities but then say the list is wrong.
