Overated, you can drive an hour and move from Autumn to Spring an extra hour either way and be in summer to winter where entire flora, fauna ecosystems & scenery change dramatically! And you can do this whenever you want, you're not obliged to wait 3-6 months or restrained to the clock.

It's not exactly the same. For example, some plants require a warm summer but also a relatively cold winter to grow well.

Quality of cities, not quantity!

It's true that due to its size, the US has lots of cities, but most of them are car-centric, unwalkable, sprawling, crime-ridden *****.

I'd say France, Germany, Japan, Italy, maybe the UK, Spain.

USA (NYC, LA, SF, Seattle, Boston, Austin, Atl, Chicago, Houston, Dallas, Miami, Denver, MSP, Charlotte, Nashville, Raleigh, Philly, Portland, Sacto, San Diego, Phoenix, Nahlins, Orlando, Tampa, Birmingham, Charleston)...no one can match that.

China is in second.

You can love London ..... without the endless negativity toward the US. It gets old. It has become more and more a anti-US agenda. Clearly we get you abhor suburban lifestyles and no US city gets your luv either .... for anything. But they are all very different and you generalize everything and crime is over-dramatized by you also, totally to put down any US city. Many understand where this is ridicules to use constantly to mock.

I love New York, and I rank the city highly (tied with Singapore). I love San Francisco as well. I can't wait to visit Boston as I have a friend and former colleague who recently moved there for a job.

That being said, for me personally, American cities are missing that certain sense of Je ne sais quoi that I get when I visit quality cities like Tokyo, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Kyoto, Vienna, etc.

And you know what is overblown? Trump and Fox News harping on London having no-go areas (there really isn't) just to politically attack its mayor who, in the past, has criticised your president.
