The list is based on the "Least Dominant Cities" thread. It might be a stupid idea, but I was thinking it could be fun. Also get some talk on towns maybe we don't talk about much here.

I think you need to list some criteria as to what you wish to compare between the cities in the poll, please.

And unfortunately i have only had first hand experience with a handful, and for example yes Ft Worth is it's own place but even when i am going there i say i am going to Dallas, sorry i should really differentiate, having said that ft Worth has a quaint downtown just avoid in the middle of summer- 101 with 95% humidity will make it feel downright nasty

I find Lexington, KY to be a very charming town.

Interesting and unusual selection there! Thank you Thomas R.
It is refreshing to see some other cities discussed on C-D besides the "biggies".
For the record I voted Dayton.

I voted Knoxville. And Lexington is also very nice. I almost voted for Kennewick, WA. It's right in the heart of Washington Wine Country. And they have many magnificent wineries around there now.

That might help, but I don't know how to edit polls. Also I kind of like having it vague. I could try to make some criteria, but mostly I just wanted a sense of which ones have a good vibe from folks here. These are taken from the "least dominant cities" thread so it might be a rare chance to "battle them" against each other in anyway.

Later I may actually create a thread based on which two cities do well and then list criteria comparing the two on said thread. Although I haven't decided yet.

Oh gosh, none are my favorite cities... I would have to go with Bakersfield, California.
