I'm in the process of moving to Philly this year, so I'll leave it off the list (it's at the top for me). This is also for US-only:

Yes
1. Chicago
2. San Fran
3. Asheville, NC
4. Honolulu
5. Puerto Rico (assuming US territories count)

No
1. Phoenix
2. Houston
3. Raleigh NC
4. Las Vegas (or any low density, desert or plains city)
5. Orlando

They may be liberal, but I could make some compromises. I am a college student, so I do find liberal environments fun; however, as a conservative (fiscal conservative, social moderate), even I have my limits! I have visited NYC countless times, so I am used to it. I would also live in Los Angeles since it is a huge city, has world-class institutions and medical schools, and beaches. Being from Philadelphia, I like my cities big haha!

Concerning the rain, I am basing that off of the two times I have visited Seattle. For a total of 10 days between two trips in 2005 and 2007, there were two days where it wasn't raining. I wanted to go visit the Space Needle back on the last day of my 2005, but my aunt said that we couldn't since it was raining so much. I would visit it during my 2007 trip, however.

Yay
1. Savannah, GA
2. Santa Fe, NM
3. Charleston, SC (history buff's goldmine)

Nay

2. Chicago
3. Austin (Its popularity has overwhelmed its infrastructure... have you ever driven in Austin?)
4. Seattle
5. New Orleans (love to visit, but spent a few years nearby and that was enough)
