If you got to visit either the first 3 cities or the second 3 cities, which would you choose?

I would probably go for the former for the scenery.

This topic appears relatively new for the city vs. city topics, and might even start a new trend in the World forum with the collection of 3 cities vs. 3 cities kind of comparisons.

Is the topic only about deciding on the group of cities to first visit, or also about other categories, and questions?

I probably would overall select the Barcelona/Rio de Janeiro/Miami option. They are all places I want to visit, especially Barcelona. While I have enough intrigue for at least visiting Miami, and Rio de Janeiro, they are not really cities I would live in, or even want to know very well. Barcelona in my view is a city for both visiting and living in, and having more interest for wanting to know Barcelona very well compared to the other 2 cities.

I also want to visit Berlin, and Sao Paulo, but not together with Boston. I already visited Boston and found it too closed off from too much of the world, disappointing, and mediocre. I probably would not visit Boston ever again, but I might surprise myself and visit Boston again, especially if I had no other choice to visit Boston for any random reason that might show up. It is Boston’s fault I didn’t select the second option.

Yes maybe I'll start a trend. It's just comparing which 3 cities you'd rather visit or you prefer in general.

Maybe I didn't weight this one that well, I'll try some other comparisons.

Miami, Rio, Barcelona vs Boston, Sao Paulo, Berlin

Boston > Miami

Rio de Janeiro > Sao Paulo

Berlin > Barcelona

TBH Miami is a crapshoot compared to Boston. They are as different as cities get in the US. One of them is a drug smuggling pin, not very educated, doesn't have any significant colleges or universities, doesn't have an economy, lower wage, etc. It's not even close, Boston by a blowout IMO is a much superior city and to go with that is scenery thats not flat like a pancake like FL. Miami's my least favorite big southern city, what a one trick pony

The 2nd trio of cities I like better

I thoroughly have been enjoying the X-Games in Barcelona this summer. What a spectacular city to show off. It's a MUST SEE city, of all the people I've ever met in my life that's been there, I have never not even once heard the slightest of complaint about it.

Anyhow all of these are stellar cities. My choice to live in is Miami but all the rest of them would be a good show to go out there and see. They're all so different from one another.

The 2nd trio of cities I like better
Out of curiosity, are you talking about living in or visiting?

I'm not sure I would want to live in Miami if I earned a humble wage and had a family to raise. But in terms of visiting it--as a tourist--especially as a single male with no dependents, I find Miami a very desirable destination. Far more so than Milwaukee. And for reason... I love hot weather, I hate cold weather (at least for an extended period), and Miami has one of the world's great body cultures. I wasn't even in Miami and I was greatly impressed with women I saw in the small Florida town I was in (St. Augustine). The women were from all over the world too. Eastern Europe to Peru. I still remember the beads of sweat on the visible cleavage on the large breasted Peruvian woman sitting in a car I was staring down into. What a fantastic site.

I also like women with darker hues be they white Morenas to the brown morenas to the darker pardos. Not that I dislike the farther extended hues of white and black but they usually are not my general preferences. Usually. But there are exceptions.

Berlin is a city I would really like to see. I would probably much rather live in Berlin than Miami. But it was not paired with Miami.

Barcelona probably has more of the Mediterranean climate I prefer over the climates one would find in Germany.

Rio has crime and problems like Sao Paulo but it has more natural beauty and a laid back beach and body culture that makes up for some of its flaws. Sao Paulo has a horrendous problem with rich people and/or their kids being kidnapped. They like to cut off one of the kidnapped person's ears too. So, even though roughly 50% of the Brazilian economy runs through that mammoth urban sprawl of a city, I would probably pick Rio (or Salvador) over Sao Paulo to live in--or even just visit if had only one option.

But people like different things. I can't understand why anyone would want to live in Tibet or in Mongolia. But some people seem to want to.

Miami, Rio and Barcelona are going to have the more vibrant nightlife and are warmer than Boston and Berlin.

However Berlin does have a legendry nightlife and I am sure Boston and Sao Paulo are great cities to visit.
