I would say Detroit but its suburbs are pretty awesome. So ill go with Las Vegas... not my ideal place to live but vacation is another story. I also hate the desert... cant stand the heat and the dryness.

Can I only pick one?
There are certain cities that didn't leave a good impression on me. On top of that list is Memphis. I just didn't like it. I also don't think I'd live in Houston again either. I also don't think I'd live in Denver but it doesn't have to do with the city but rather the high altitude and extremely dry air that made it hard for me to breathe when I was there.

What's wrong with that? Sounds like he just doesn't like hot summers.

I agree that living in Salt Lake City would probably be a bit boring except for the skiing. I don't think people even fish & swim in the Great Salt Lake, right? [too salty]. Also the Mormon oppression must be a bummer to buy alcohol.

Yep. There are plenty of people who don't like heat.

Detroit unfortunately, would be my choice too. Although not the entire Detroit area, which has some nice suburbs. Michigan also created a decent greenbelt of state parks to the Northwest of the city. Its a real shame that Detroit's current problems is giving the entire state a bad name.

One thing I disagee with you is that the Detroit-Cleveland area is boring.

Detroit looks SOUTH into Canada, lol. When people want to get away from the metro area they can go further north in Michigan. Michigan is the only state that borders ALL FIVE Great Lakes. Lots of boating, fishing and rafting. Some areas of the North Country are so wild there are moose and even timber wolves.

Cleveland is directly on Lake Erie. The city is also not too far from the Alleghany Mountains. In winter they are close to the "Snow Belt" and there are major ski resorts like Holiday Valley in New York and Pennsylvania. There is even smaller ski slopes in Metro Cleveland itself such as at Brandywine. In the center of the Cleveland-Akron area there is even a National Park, Cuyahoga Valley NP.

Michigan doesn't touch Ontario.

See I needed that info. Being down here you don't hear much about "THE GOOD" in cities up north. I mean that's everywhere but you never know until your told or see for yourself. I guess my reasons would go back to weather. Also im use to the EXTREMELY diverse cultures in Florida, it would be a total shock for me in Detroit.
