Default A small town in Southern Georgia

I took a Greyhound from New York to Miami. The bus stopped in a sleepy town in Georgia near the Florida border. I felt that I should have got off the bus and stayed. I don't know the name of the town but it was very relaxing. Any town in the south makes me feel at home.

It was actually Red Barons baseball, and they were the AAA-affilliate of the Phillies from the late-1980s-2006. The NY Yankees recently came to town to replace them, as the Red Barons moved to Allentown and became the "War Pigs" or some stupid name like that. The Columbus Clippers was the AAA Yankees affilliate, which moved here to Scranton.

There was a Red Barons football team also, what's usually described as a 'semi-pro' team. It was a while ago, maybe early '90s, but I know because I went to a game with my dad when he was living in West Clifford.

Boston
New York (flew in once, but never officially been into the city)
Philadelphia
Miami
Phoenix (and I'd love to bring home a saguaro and plant it in the yard!)
Las Vegas
Austin
Minneapolis
Chicago
Los Angeles
Honolulu
Denver
London
Any of the large cities in Italy so I can throw down on some good Italian food!
Any of the large cities in Germany


I just visited DC last week, so I finally got one city off the list...now if only I could afford to move up there!

I've been all over (Baltimore, Charlotte, Chicago, Cleveland, Columbus, Detroit, Grand Rapids, Indianapolis, Madison, Milwaukee, Pittsburgh, Raleigh-Durham, Rochester, San Francisco, St Louis, Virginia Beach, and Washington DC) in the past 3 years. OK, so that's the Greater Midwest, a little Mid Atlantic, and a flight out to NorCal. I further encourge ScrantonWB to visit Madison, and for MattDen to check out Pittsburgh. I've not been to Lincoln, Omaha, or Scranton! Can you believe that?! actually, have driven through with family, many years ago. The first Bush was president then.

My weekend trip to Iowa City was nice, and I stopped in Peoria for lunch on my way back to Champaign. I didn't do much in the Quad Cities area, other than enjoy the view of the rivers.

I've been to Minneapolis and Duluth about 10 years ago, but I won't get farther than Marquette this summer (I'll spend some time in Upper Michigan next month at the family's second home). I was contemplating a weekend driving trip to Cincinnati and/or Louisville, but I am thinking about not bothering. I have time to go to St Louis again this upcoming weekend, but I'm not sure what I will do. The weather forecast looks better than it has recently.

My first and only visit to Seattle (so far) was in 1999 and want to revisit, so put me down for that.
Yes, I can keep it to just one. I otherwise dislike domestic flights. I haven't been overseas since 2000, but I want to see various places in Austria, Australia, Germany, and Japan someday soon.

Valdosta is a pit, so you must be joking. They are not friendly, unless you are another Southerner.
But don't just listen to me, trust in statistics: http://www.city-data.com/city/Valdosta-Georgia.html

I don't recommend Greyhound to people visiting the US from overseas, and usually suggest Amtrak instead.
