The person I was quoting put Des Moines in the 5-8 hours range from Minneapolis, that's what I was responding to.

3 million is also a very very large size for a city.

Remember the criteris is CSA. For Philly that includes many rivers but more importantly the Delaware and Chesepeake Bays and the Atlantic Ocean

Lakes, while there are some they are not large, Beaches (Hands down Philly with the Jersey shore in the CSA), Piers/Boardwalks, again maybe the best boardwalks in the country and the Chesepeake is amazing.

Remeber these places are in the CSA
