Phoenix and Tucson, I reckon.
Besides being in a desert area they're VERY different.

You know, coming to this thread, I was prepared to hear somebody say those two cities. Even though I completely disagree, I'm starting to see where people come from when they say that because I've always had a hard time of looking at Cleveland, Columbus, and Cincinnati as different cities.

As for the original question, I'm going to have to say Columbus and Indianapolis. And this is coming from someone who has lived in both cities.

That I've lived in, Chicago & Philly just for their neighborhoods and ELs (elevated public transit trains going through neighborhoods).

I don't think DC and SF are very much alike either. If anything, I'd compare SF to Boston first. I also think Boston more closely resembles a European city (like London) than DC.

I think with the exception of weather, phoenix and san diego are twins! Both have little culture, bland city scapes, endless sprawl, illegal alien problems, shallow and materialistic people in abundance, low quality of education and are both extremely OVERHYPED and BORING

European like? well...in any case, if that's the only argument, which it should be, I'd say D.C. and San Francisco are nothing alike, not in appearance, not in anything. I can't think of anyway in which D.C. and San Francisco are similar.
