If money was no question, which city would you rather live in and why? I have been to both cities and would have to choose Philadelphia. Now, Seattle has the best landscape IMO. It is close to (or right next to) the beautiful Cascade Mountains, Hoh Rainforest, and Puget Sound. However, Philly is such an urban city with outstanding old mixed with modern skyscrapers. The fabric of the city is a rowhouse-lovers paradise, and is close to New York, Baltimore and DC.

Good thread! I cant decide. Id choose Philly for architecture, sports, food and weather, but Seattle for the mountains, seafood and ocean.

Its a tie in my book.

Philadelphia, its history, culture, architecture, and northeast location make it the best choice.
