I've always thought Boston was a pretty cool place. I love the history and architecture. I can see why they are number 1. And I don't let a city's politics determine where I live.

I think Philadelphia should have beaten it's competition, Charleston. Although I do hear that Charleston is nice.

plenty of folks love Philly...

this is just one poll...

Philly is undervalued but it's tough for the city to seperate itself from the rest of the cities on the East Coast....

Dallas never strikes me as much of a travel/tourist town either. But it's on the list...

Which, after having lived there, is kind of beyond me why it would be on this list.

I don't know, but in this specific case, why not? If this is the same list I remember seeing before, it's the only major city I can see they excluded from the survey. Why wouldn't some people question that?
And I remember seeing a statistic for number of annual out-of-town visitors, and Houston was actually ranked very high (maybe even the highest in the state... keep in mind this was not just vacationers but business and other travelers as well.)

Pew Research Center listed Denver as the favorite city with San Diego at second. San Francisco was sixth and Boston eleventh. Two cities often despised at city-data (Phoenix, Orlando) were above Boston. The pdf version indicates Democrats, the wealthy, and college grads were more positive to Boston. Although none of them preferred Boston to Denver, Democrats and people under 34 did prefer San Francisco to Denver.
