I favour only one American city to visit and that is Tucson, Arizona. Every year during the first 2 weeks of February the city of Tucson hosts a HUGE international Gem and Mineral show that is city-wide. There are usually around 4,000 vendors from all over the world and it takes up display and vendor space throughout the whole town in any spot where there is available space to set up a booth or table under cover in a building or inside a tent or under a patio umbrella.

That includes vendor space in all the motels and hotels conference rooms and lobbies as well as in the vendor's motel/hotel rooms and in their parking lots, and on traffic-blocked streets and city sidewalks in front of stores, parking lots everywhere in town, airplane hangers, factory buildings, auditoriums, meeting halls, the convention center, sports fields, school parks, public parks, trailer parks and you name it, on and on and on. The town is packed! It attracts thousands and thousands of people from all over the world. It's stupendous. The energy is mind boggling. The gemstones and raw minerals to be seen and the collective energy they generate is blow-you-away stimulation overload that leaves people gasping.

The town is tidy and neat, easy to navigate, quite lovely, well cared for and so are the rural residential areas near the town. The desert is breath-takingly beautiful during both day and night. The merchants, restaurateurs, hosts, city police, paramedics and other business and towns people who live and work year round in Tucson are VERY nice and accommodating people.

Other than Tucson alone, while I have enjoyed driving across America visiting very small towns and villages in out of the way places in many states I otherwise don't like cities (not even ours here in Canada) so I avoid all cities anywhere as much as is reasonably possible. Except for Tucson.

The only large city I visited in the US was Boston, and I really enjoyed it there.

San Diego gets an honorable mention. Great climate. Nice parks and restaurants

Not so much cities but areas. I enjoy the drive down from Grand Forks BC, to Spokane.

I love the Oregon Coast and parts of the California Coast.

Palm Springs I enjoy, but it is not the town really, but the desert and mountains.

Also driving through Utah was nice. Arizona as well.

If I had to choose a city, it would be NYC.

No, I've never been, probably because it's a bit farther north from where I start my coastal trip in Oregon.
It also reminds me a bit of Nelson, BC, except by the sea.

There are too many of them for me to list.


The U.S. has more than its share of crappy cities, but due to its size and diversity it also has so many great places to live and visit as well.

Hawaii, NYC and San Diego for me.

Close to where I live, Seattle is a pretty neat city to be close to just for some diversity of activities and restaurants.
