I've said on here countless times I went to Houston to see an Astros game this summer. I'm off on summers and sometimes travel to see other baseball teams.

Philadelphia. One small nice historical area--the rest looks very depressing and run down.

I couldn't see myself living in LA or Phoenix.

LA was too hype, fake, and superficial when I was there, and everything was WAY too expensive.

Phoenix was just a soul-destroying wasteland of no culture, nothing really to do except go to sports bars, waiting until 11 PM for it to cool down enough to actually play the sports you like, and overly aggressive maniacs. I was there for three months and hated it.

As much as i want to remain hopeful for the city, I have to go with Detroit. I just think i would be sad there. Of course, Detroit has some great neighborhoods that no one bothers to seek out

Doesn't matter. One visit to a baseball game doesn't count as sufficient experience to judge a city (let alone an entire state) and claim expertise.

Don't know enough about Phoenix to comment. I've only been there a few times. Seems nice enough.

But you are wrong about LA.

I'm sorry you limited yourself to sports bars as there is much more to do in Phoenix (and I'm not the biggest Phoenix fan).
