I just saw another thread where the poster said Paris, New York and London where "must see" cities of all humans. I think this is one's personal opinion. In MY opinion, Chicago, New York, Rome and Paris are must see's, but again these are just my opinions.

What are YOUR opinions of "Must See" cities?

I think everyone's "must see" cities are specific to them. No one can decide what is "must see" for someone else. The things that interest me about one city might bore someone else and vice versa.

I agree, thats such a broad question. I personally have never been to Canada and really want to see Montreal. Depends on what you're into though. I love the feel of a vibrant city, but also love the mountains. Denver was awesome to me because of that. Seattle is also on my list, though I could never live there.

That's the point of this thread!

In the other thread I referenced, the OP stated three cities and said they are a must see for all humans, period. I felt that was his own personal opinion, but he didn't ask for others opinions on what they thought. I started this thread to ask what others felt were they're "must see" cities. What are your opinions? This might encourage others to see a city that they might not have thought to otherwise.

Whoa. Calm down. My point is, I don't presume to declare any city "must see". I can't decide what's must see for anyone but me. I can come up with a list of cities I like, but that has no bearing on anyone else. So basically I'm taking issue with the premise of the question.

Wow- even based on my personal preferences it's hard to choose. I've always said that your dream vacation may be my trip from hell, and vice versa.

If I re-phrased it as, "Of all the cities you've visited, which 3 would you NOT want to have missed?", my answers would be Reykjavik, Dubrovnik and Edinburgh, in no particular order.

Cities? I'd go with London, D.C., and Lucerne. Although I disliked it overall and didn't feel particularly clean or safe while there, I'd also recommend San Francisco for its great hills, Chinatown, and the Golden Gate Bridge. The Freedom Trail in Boston is also well worth the time it takes; I like Boston and find it cleaner and calmer than most cities.

But really, there are places that I've been that trump those cities. Big Sur... I think that anyone who has the chance should drive through it. That was one of the most breathtaking sights I've ever seen. The Swiss Alps were also outstanding. I got an odd sense of nostalgia and almost a sadness driving through Lancaster County, PA. Couldn't really explain it, but I found it strikingly beautiful. New England in the fall. Some of the Gulf beaches. I have not been to the National Parks in Utah, but they are on my "must do" list for the nearish future. I'd also love to go to see the Greek towns on the water. They look amazing.

I haven't been very many places in the world, but the places I do want to go are not necessarily big cities. I generally prefer more natural surroundings, preferably with a "wow" factor. That being said, I would not turn down the chance to visit a big city that I've never seen before.

I can't think of any.

A lot of people have never left their state and they are perfectly fine.

Leisure travel isn't a necessity.

Personally, I have to see Dallas multiple times a year, though.

I avoid cities. If a city has a beltway, I stay at least 15 miles outside the beltway on secondary roads until I am well clear and then get back on an interstate to my destination.
