What Do You Think Is The "Nicest", "Mid-Sized" city in America?? Say with a population of 100,000 to 250,000.

Boise. I definitely love its nice and cohesive Downtown.

I would say Salt Lake City but that would be biased and it would pain me to say it, as our city center population is woefully small in comparison to our metropolitan area.

Chattanooga, Tn. -- that's definitely my favorite town in that size range. Great place. From what I understand, it was a dump thirty years ago, which makes it all the more impressive now. Congrats to the locals for cleaning up their city. Good job!

Definitely Chattanooga. They've really cleaned the place up. It's in a beautiful setting, too, surrounded by mountains.
