What the heck? Who, besides, a gangster, or a mafia member, would prefer high crime?

Lubbock

Likes:
1) Quite vibrant for a city its size (college town: many amenities/cultural events/diversity)
2) Extremely friendly people
3) Dry, mild weather most of the year
4) Great schools
5) Very clean, well landscaped

Dislikes:
1) The High Plains has its own kind of beauty, but I prefer mountains, water, beaches, etc.
2) Little outdoor activity outside of hunting
3) Relatively isolated (wouldn't be as much a problem if there were better scenery)
4) Very limited walkability/bikeability/public transportation
5) Not as politically moderate as I would like

SACRAMENTO

LIKES:
1. Access to outdoor activities: valley rivers, mountain creeks & rivers, large mountains and foothills, rugged coast, tame coast, stunning scenery, surrounded by wine growing regions and the most famous of all Napa Valley, all this located either in town or 1, 2, or 3 hours away. And easy access to one of the most urban beautiful cities in the world. (SF)

2. Comfortable very good weather 10-11 months of the year, low humidity, lots of sun.

3. FRIENDLY PEOPLE, very diverse, high numbers of latinos, asians, surprisingly nice mix of expats from Europe. Highly rated University 10 miles away, in charming cultured town linked by regular train service. (University of California, Davis)

4. Eco-progressive, flat and easy for biking, slowly but progressively creating a dense pedestrian downtown/midtown. One of the first modern light rail systems in USA and its expanding south, north and to the Airport. Brand new airport opening soon.

5. Great Minor league baseball stadium, tree-lined throughout the metro. Growing artistic class.

DISLIKES:
1. Just a tad too far from the coast.
2. Lacks a corporate, fortune 500 presence.
3. Lacks a National tourist attraction(s) or tourist district that many other cities have of similar size. (Although charming, Old Sacramento doesn't quite cut it)
4. Needs a new Arena and stadium.
5. Too many Nimbys (Not in My Backyard types)

Default Seattle

Seattle

Like: (1)An abundance of amazing beautiful parks; (2)abundant amount of delicious restaurants; (3)great public transportation;(4) lovely mild weather(LOVE the summers here); (5)ecology (very green, lots of trees, mountain views, and surrounded by water--love it!)

Dislike: (1)"Seattle Nice"--well known term here: in GENERAL, te population has the tenancy to be very passive aggressive; (2)HORRIBLE drivers (I have been all over the US, Seattle by far is the WORST!); (3)very limited night life--pretends to be a big city, but it's not....most of the city shuts down pretty early the majority of the time; (4) majority(notice I did not say ALL) of bikers who play by a double standard--expect everyone (including pedestrians!) to yield to them, yet they *constantly* break the law--would love to see a much bigger enforcement of this here--they are dangerous! (5) very aggressive homeless population (I am sympathetic, but it is not ok to approach me for $ at an ATM, tapping on my car window when I am parked, when I have my wallet out paying for parking, etc, and then get angry when I don't pay up).
