Miami does absolutely nothing for me. I like the Art Deco architecture but that's about it. I certainly would not move there and don't personally find it attractive at all. I think many other cities can certainly compare pretty favourably...

For the US it would have to be Savanna, GA for me. I loved the way it's layed out in charming squares and the gorgeous trees. Also the fact it is on the ocean. There are so many more cities in the US I would love to visit.

There are photographs of many towns in Greece and other Mediterranean countries that look very beautiful as well.

Some places are beautiful because of wherethey are, others are pretty because of the city.

To me Victoria, BC, Seattle, Vancouver, BC are gorgeous because of where they are, which still makes them pretty to me.

Savannah, GA, Charleston, SC, and Quebec City and Montreal to me are pretty because of architecture, landscaping, etc., not so much because of setting.

Really surprised you said that, have you heard of Mount Royal?
It's so sacred to the city that they have a height restriction for skyscrapers in place so they don't block the view.

Glad to know I can still surprise someone.
Mount Royal, that's the hill just off the Kansas City Royals' center field, right?

(Psst...I do know about Mount Royal, and I know about the building restriction. It's all a personal thing...it's just that as a "mount" it's not that spectacular--you see hills like that all over the place. The city on the other hand, is. And, again, it's an opinion thing, the city itself is what sets it off.)
