Columbus Ohio? Columbus Florida? Columbus North Carolina? Columbus Georgia?

I find references to at least 15 towns or cities in the US named Columbus. Which One?

There is, and can be no "favorite city". Favorite for what? Jobs? Sports teams? Cultural activities? Sense of community? Climate? Recreation? You need to give us an idea of what features you are seeking.

Honestly if I lived over seas and was going to study in America of the cities you listed I would pick Boston. It has a lot of great colleges and is a international city.

I have to agree. I went to school in Boston and it was a great experience. Public transportation is fairly efficient, there's lots to do and some very interesting history to take in.

Thread moved to General USA forum.


I'd say go with either DC or Boston.

DC has a huge international flavor with all the embassies, etc, several fine universities, much culture, etc.

Boston has a ton of fine universities and much history, culture, etc.

I've been to columbus and Boston, and between those to Boston by 10 billions miles. I think I'd really like Denver though, I love the mountains, so I'd honestly rather live in Denver over the other cities you listen, even though I've never been.

Nothing wrong with Denver or Columbus (I assume this means Columbus, Ohio), but your clear answers here are either DC or Boston. Both are larger, more important cities than the other two. DC is the seat of government and has tons of museums, monuments, and government institutions. Boston is one of the richest cities for American history and contains many world renowned universities.

Personally I'd go w/ DC, but Boston isn't far behind.

DC, but I'm a bit biased since I live near the city.

Aside from DC, it's definitely Boston by a long shot. History, culture, education, job opportunities, etc. Though I will admit it lacks in nightlife compared to other major East Coast cities.

I would pick DC. Boston is a great choice too, but Washington is my personal favorite city on the east coast.
