If you are familiar with the cities above, where else in the United States is it like these places?

(I know they are different from each other, but I'm focusing on their similarities and wondering what other places would line up well on this list, in your opinions)

Tampa is kind of a poor mans version of San Diego

Columbus OH is a cold weather twin to Austin

Eugene OR is a west coast twin to Asheville (not a good thing because I am not a fan of either)

Regarding what? Maybe if you clarify, it might be easier to answer. They both have good AND bad of many things.

Two places you might check out are Santa Cruz and San Luis Obispo (both in CA). Climate-wise, they are similar to San Diego county and they both have a little bit of the hip funkiness of Asheville and Austin. Of course, both places are smaller than any of the three cities you mentioned.

San Antonio is a very cool hip underground city

Isn't Louisville rising up on a pile of awesomeness. I think that's an exact quote from somewhere.

Nowhere. They are all uniques snowflakes of awesomeness that no other city on earth can even come close to.

Tampa is the poor man's version of Miami, Columbus is still unfortunately in Ohio and Eugene is just a bad name for a city. It's like living in a city named Poindexter.

There is nothing bad about those cities. According to their residents, they are the capitals of all that is awesome.

Smaller? How can they bring in the funk if they're smaller?

Especially if you only like cumbia and heavy metal music.

Minneapolis gets lumped in with Austin quite frequently, along with Portland and Denver. But again, it depends on what you mean by the positives - much as I love Minneapolis and enjoy having seasons, San Diego and its perfect weather wins by a landslide on the climate front.
