I pick Houston. I always have fun when I'm there. Its culturally diverse. Its big and it has mild winters. Plus there's thousands of great restaurants. Also being so close to the Gulf and historic Galveston is a real plus.

And Denver receives 70% sunshine, which is hardly shabby. Thats pretty close to 300 days a year Id imagine, but Im hardly a math whiz. LOL

Illinois in late January (near Galena):
Steve-O, not to pick hairs here, but you were debating Phoenix - Denver, and all of the photos you listed are of TUCSON...not Phoenix.

I'd pick L.A., with S.D. and MIA as runners-up.

EnjoyEP.... re-read my post. I compared PHX to Denver regarding SUN, I said it SNOWS in southern AZ, which is where Tucson is. I never mentioned Phoenix for snow, even though theyre not immune to it. ;-) Hope this explains...

That's why there is a "other" option.

Let me rephrase. Is there a reason the others were left off?

I didn't want the poll to be too long.

The Sun Belt is a region of the United States generally considered to stretch across the South and Southwest. Another rough boundary of the region is the 37th to 38th parallels, north latitude — southward.

Arizona, California, Florida, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, and Utah are the states most commonly identified with the Sun Belt, and Georgia, South Carolina, Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas, and Alabama are also within the same region as far as climate is concerned.

I adore the New Orleans Area. The city proper needs help but when I lived in the Suburbs, I loved it. The winters were awesome lol.

my hometown metro, tampa, is so forgotten! it's usually never included on ANY polls here, and if it is, it has the least amount of votes. seems all the "T" cities in the US are the most forgettable/overlooked: tampa, toledo, tucson, tulsa.

out of this list, it's an easy choice for atlanta.
