Rank these cities. Which ones to you are most livable, enjoyed visiting, or piqued your interest for a visit. Or if you don’t care for some of these cities rank that based on that also.

Spokane
Boise
Albuquerque

Wow. Sacramento isn't getting any love. Reno, El Paso, Tucson over Sac? Seriously?

Sacramento has over 2.1 million people living in the region ,state capitol of California, midtown sac is amazing neighborhood, decent culture and art and dining scene, NBA basketball is here, a state of the art airport terminal is being finished; we also have light rail, bike trails, two rivers across the downtown area, the Sacramento and American River, good for rafting and such, a lot of trees and a number of good parks, and a few lakes.

Also, our proximity is unbeatable. Within 2 hours or less you can be in the Bay Area, San Francisco, Napa, Lake Tahoe, mountains, snow, Reno, and more.

The negatives: too much traffic, hot summers, crime is a bit high, and for some people, it is in California. Other than that what is not to like.


1. Sacramento
2. Salt Lake City
3. Albuquerque
4. Colorado Springs
5. Boise

I love the Tahoe area and the adult activities at reno, I like the size and clubs/nightlife in sacramento, plus the river going through it is nice.
Boise is where I live now (moved from west of Sacramento) and its pretty decent, a lot of outdoors stuff everywhere, pretty good weather. but not very large
I've only been through SLC a few times briefly but it wasn't great imo.
i'm from phoenix originally and have been to Tucson a ton of times...I'm not really a fan.

Then you've got the NM and TX cities, both part of states that i am REALLY not fond of.

There's a reason why I specified which cities I've been to and which cities I haven't. It's possible that if I went to Sacramento and Reno, I might rank Sacramento above Reno. The rankings for places I haven't been to were just estimates.

I'll only rank the ones that I've been to. I don't care much for Reno or Albuquerque and not a big fan of Spokane either, but I really disliked El Paso. It's my least favorite city that I've ever been to. Sacramento is underrated in this thread so far. It's got a lot going for it compared to the others.

Sacramento
Boise
Colorado Springs
Salt Lake City
Spokane
Albuquerque
Reno
El Paso

As usual, this is the result of Sacramento being possibly one of the worst self promoters as far as cities go in this country. Sac's definitely got more to offer than the others in that list by far. But most people wouldn't know it because the city sucks at self-promotion and branding. It also suffers from an enormous inferiority complex being in CA and surrounded by SF, LA and SD.
