The other two are fine cities, but my vote goes to Seattle. In my eyes the Pacific NW is the most beautiful region of the country.

There is two problems with the Seattle metro area. No thriving black community, and too far out.

My pick is Seattle. They have the best weather out of the 3 and it's close to Vancouver and Portland.

Atlanta by far because its located in a better spot and I just love going to Atlanta. Houston would be next and I don't like rain so I wouldn't live in Seattle but all three are cool.

To each his own, I suppose!
Atlanta's weather can be miserably hot in the summer sometimes but that's only 3 months out of the year. The other 9 months I think Atlanta's weather blows Seattle's away.

All these people thinking Atlanta's weather is hot and humid all year round must have it confused with Miami.

I'm sure Seattle is a wonderful place, it looks amazing in pictures. But not enough black people for me. So of course I will say Atlanta, but Houston would be second

I guess I'll stay in Houston because I want to be in the center of the action. California and Texas are economic powerhouses. I couldn't stay in Seattle because it's too far from California and San Francisco is like Seattle but recognized as a major city for much longer and more cosmopolitan (plus it's still in California). After visiting cold, foggy, drizzly, and gloomy San Francisco last weekend, I might only want to visit the northern West Coast cities and live in sunnier coastal SoCal (preferably L.A.) since its closer to what I have grown up with.

Definitely Seattle...there's something about the west coast that draws me to it. Will probably retire over there when the time comes in the future.

WHAAAAT???!!! They put avocados and spinach and crap like that on their pizzas on the west coast! They don't burn the crusts there either. The seafood doesn't smell of diesel over there. How could you survive?! You would wither away like moldy durian fruit on the west coast!

Pssst... I hear now's a good time to buy a house on the west coast. You may never have this opportunity to take advantage of these low prices ever again. You shouldn't wait until you retire.
