Wow, if you listen to these forums, you would have thought nobody would want to live in Florida. I guess the reality is different

Go Texas as well

Yes but people live in cities, and Orlando is the only place that made the list and ranked kind of low, and it's strange how the state of Florida ranks high. I'm surprised it was Orlando instead of Miami. But I can't talk...we're #15. LOL.

The list doesn't surprise me. Everyone I know obsesses over NYC, SF, Seattle and San Diego (why, I don't know but whatever). I never hear anyone mention Denver so I'm surprised its so high.

This thread will go down hill in no time..LOL.

My predictions:
This will turn into an "I told you SF was better than DC and Manhattan" argument.
And people from the cities not on the list will question the validity of this assessment.
And cityboi757 will post 1000 pics of Norfolk. (jk..in case he sees this..I'm only joking).
Someone will question how Atlanta and Nashville made the list and not Charlotte.


BTW, Richmond VA should have made the list LOL.
Anyway, interesting list.

LMAO, the moment I saw this thread I automatically knew it was just a cheeky way to get back at that DC guy and that entire thread.

Funny.

Good news for Dallas and Texas!

Noticed Atlanta and Austin showed up on the list. Good stuff!

I also cant understand why LA showed up so low. I cant tell you how many people tell me they want to move there when I tell them Im from there.
