Everybody Loves Charleston: Voted USA's No. 1 City For Third Consecutive Year : Condé Nast Traveler

Then again, people will sometimes love a city ranked best in the US over and over and over again.
No one is necessarily hating on Charleston. My grandmother used to be a cook there before any of us were thought of and it is most likely the port of entry for some of my ancestors. With that said, this doesn't mean that people can't like Rochester or that there aren't pros and cons to both areas. Like/love where you live, but put down the Hateraide.

Different strokes....some people prefer vacationing in cold inland cities like Rochester and Manchester (and they're all on City Data to prove their point) and some people prefer warm beaches. I don't get the comparison, but its all good. I'm not criticizing anyone, I just think its a extremely disillusioned point of view.

All the best and most scenic cities are on the coast. They thrive. It is what it is....NYC, Boston, LA, San Francisco, Vancouver, Seattle, Miami. I think LA is LA more for its amazing location, and there's a reason Bakersfield and Fresno, despite the huge amount of agricultural commerce that's there, will never be LA or San Fran.

The same could be said for NYC and its NJ coastal suburbs vs Buffalo and its location. But hey, there's a guy on the Buffalo forum who says that Buffalo will surpass NYC in population in 20 years. So, whats the point of arguing with that? Am I really going to have a realistic debate with people that disillusioned?

Yeah Rochester is not Dallas, Denver, Minneapolis...

It is a dying upstate NY town filled with people that think everywhere else is better....

LOL...little do they know...

What did BuffaloTransplant have to do with this thread?

Also, no one said that Rochester was like any of those cities and that post was in regard to something else.

Lastly, I'm fine and have no need to get hostile about this silly stuff. This is too funny.

You called me a liar. I didn't start anything hostile. If you call someone a liar, expect them to respond.

I made a mistake- it wasn't BuffaloTransplant, it was a post by BuffalonianPride.

It was a funny post worth mentioning, as it really drives home the point about the disillusionment of Upstate NYers when ANYONE God-Forbid compares NY to someplace they like better.

There are several people here that were saying that they don't like the beach or they prefer to vacation in Rochester. I saw it, Rory saw it, I guess you missed it. I wasn't lying about that, and you're right, it was actually funny. Lets not get the whole family together and go to Fort Lauderdale, lets go to Rochester!

I saw that they liked the Fall season in the area versus the beach. I didn't see anywhere in a post said they liked to vacation in the area. I could be wrong though.

Also, the lying aspect was about someone saying that they rather go on vacation to those cities. I still don't know what that post had to do with this thread and it has been known that the particular poster would exaggerate things in many posts. You can separate the real from the fake stuff, man.

Lastly, I don't think anyone cares as much as you are making it out to be. People can like other landscapes more than beaches and you don't have to put down another area, regardless of whatever you like. It is not that serious.

Aren't you working on getting to CA, by the way?

I'm not putting anything down. You might be perceiving it that way, but I was just making a point about people loving living near the coast, and how its a different feeling than inland cities. Feel free to reread my posts and you'll see that's all I posted.

I'm not planning on moving to CA right now. I'd like to retire there perhaps, along the coast if I can afford it, or in someplace like Sacramento if I can't. I love the beach and I love sunshine. CA has both. In the next 2 years, I plan to move back South (likely VA or NC) with an adjusted career path that hopefully will be more successful down there. 40 and sunny is much better when you work outside than 15 and cloudy.

I enjoy living in the area of NJ that I'm in, which is the western border with PA. Also, I'm learning a new side of my career field, so I'm not in a rush to leave this.

Ok, sure.....Anyway, that's great and hopefully if it gets too hot, the heat won't be too much. It will depend on what parts of those states you move to though.

Too hot, possible, but I'm not too concerned about it. I experienced a good portion of spring and summer in NC and it was not much different than summer on the southern NJ coast. Equally humid and hot, and I loved it. Bring it on!

I also usually spend a week in August in CA, including inland in the Sacramento area. Me lady is from there. Last year it was 109 for 4 days straight. It was fine, I actually went in the hot tub. I think the belief that people don't want too much heat is not panning out. People still seem to flock to Sunbelt states, regardless.

You want us to believe in the the survey voting Charleston # 1. But you discount and discredit thr survey voting Wegmans #1 , calling us misguided misinformed and Sunshine deficient.
