New York feels like a city with endless possibilities.

San Francisco feels like springtime all year round.

Washington DC feels full of life in the spring with cherry blossoms around the grand monuments.

Miami is endless nightlife and beach weather.

Los Angeles is a combination of sunny weather, beaches, entertainment and nightlife. All pretty optimistic.
Just shows how different everyone is:

I've been to NY twice and hope I never have to go back.

SF is the best place on your list but I wouldn't want to live there. Great place to visit though.

I lived in Washington DC as a graduate intern and I have never been so miserable. Its a city full of rude, uppity, status-obsessed people.

Miami is another good place to visit. I was really surprised at how rude and superficial so many Miamians are though.

Los Angeles is a completely fake and superficial place as far as I am concerned. You would think that being the center of the TV and film world it would be a cultural mecca, but it was incredibly culturally bankrupt to me. The culture there is very similar to a film set - it doesn't hold up to any kind of close scrutiny. LA leaves me with an empty and sad feeling.

I've been looking at the trailers for the new Florence Foster Jenkins biopic, and I'd really like to have experienced New York City during the heyday of the mid-20th century.

while that's technically true (especially for the suburbs) I see it as more down to earth. People aren't fake and don't try to bother others for some fake greeting or pointless small talk. It can be kind of rough if you're a super talkative social person but it makes you tougher and less prone to emotional fits when you overreact to a single comment that could be taken as rude. Also if you make a friend, it would be more real than one you'd find anywhere else in the country
