No, I think my vote for Atlanta would remain. I'm too southern to want to live anywhere in the west.

Hmm, given the odd list of places, I think I would choose DC. It's a city that's walkable, has excellent transit services, beautiful old housing stock, and four seasons. Charleston, SC could be a nice place to retire if I ever wanted to "get away from it all."

Oh it ain't too odd a list if you read my deduction logic a few pages back.

In fact, with the exception of DC and Charleston, which I like for other reasons, the others are every city that fits my relatively simple main criteria:
(1) good weather (DC or better, I prefer hot to cold)
(2) not too small, not too big (> 1 million, < 5 million or so)

But thank you for finally giving a vote to the city I'll most likely end up in.

Everyone always forgets about little 'ole Scranton when they talk about New York and L.A. (Sniffle, sniffle!) LOL!

All kidding aside, I don't really like any of the cities on your list. Sorry! I'm a big fan of struggling Northern industrial cities, and the two furthest north---Washington, DC and Denver---don't fit into that category. I'd love to consider cities like Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Buffalo, Chicago, and of course, Scranton!

Chicago's struggling? Lol, who's letting this happen?

How about Sacramento, you can live near many excellent things such as san francisco, napa, and tahoe for much cheaper, than san francisco. It has a great job market, and a metro area of over 2 million.

None of the above!

However, of the choices, I'd stay in San Diego.
