    I haven't traveled much, but from my limited experience I like Laramie. The college kids are bearable, the townsfolk are generally decent, the police are reasonable, the scenery is gorgeous, and the skies are wide open

    Here's another vote for "least favorite" for Boston. Although it is a close tie with Philadelphia. Both cities suffer from the extreme prejudices that their various ethnic groups show towards each other, and it is very apparent when visiting either city. Both have good points, Boston has very good seafood, Philadelphia has cheese steaks and hoagies. Both have historical things to see ..... but I would never want to live in either city.

    Re: Do you have a favorite city in the U.S.?

    Chicago traffic sucks but it's great to visit. I'd be reluctant to live there but I'm happy to be a train ride away. As for living in the northeast, the taxes and congestion in most metro areas are a huge turnoff. The cost often outweighs the benefits. I'd effectively be taking a 30-50% pay cut by moving to some American cities.

    If I'm going to have my bank account drained and live among a bunch of crazies, I'll take west coast weather.


    Like drew, I like having four seasons in the midwest but the humidity stinks. My electric bills triple in the summer.

    Columbus is very underrated. Yeah it's Ohio, but it's a nice city full of decent people with a lot of nice areas. It isn't #1 at anything but it's darn good at everything.

    Couldn't agree more on both statements. Especially the Chicago traffic comment! Lol. I was in AM rush hr once, sitting still, as most traffic in Chicago gets places, and I look in my mirror and see some idiot in a nearly new XJ8 starting to pull UNDER my trailer trying to change lanes. When the frame rail on my trailer about met his windshield, he slammed on his brakes.

    Far as Columbus goes, up until 2 years ago, I NEVER liked dealing with big cities. Grew up in the country. Spent a lotta time on my dads farm and never figured I'd enjoy city anything. But I learned I really enjoy the array of different things and cultures. Love having the ability to try a new restaurant every weekend. Plus the ability to try things like the "world of beers" where they've got hundreds of beers to try. And of course the entertainment. Places like the Funny Bone and all the festivals threw the summer.

    Far as stuff like that, I've decided I really like the city. But, for living, we think when we buy a house, it'll be in the country somewhere. I wanna have room for bonfires and target shooting. Things like that.

    Re: Do you have a favorite city in the U.S.?

    5th generation Washingtonian/southern Marylander - great city in the 50's, is a true mess and hellhole now. Never go there (around it, maybe).
    Nothing north of the Delaware Memorial Bridge/I-95 corridor. A humanity and friendship desert. (far, far too much Navy time in New London, CT; Hartford, CT; Newport, RI; Boston, MA and Portsmouth, NH. NYC was decent liberty in groups of 10)
    Naples, Italy was fun, cheap, and nice people.
    Seville, Spain is beautiful, nice people, good brandy.
    Port Said, Egypt is a scum hole.
    Istanbul, Turkey is .......... interesting.
    Isle of Palms, SC
    Charleston, SC
    Savannah, GA
    Hickory, NC
    Almost anywhere in eastern Kentucky, Tennessee, western Virginia/North Carolina/South Carolina/Georgia, Guntersville, Alabama.

    Poor little Kent Island/Stevensville, MD - unmarred by 300 years of progress - is not too shabby, either. Been here 27 years and it's right fine to be considered one of the good ol' boys. ("Progress" - in the form of development - is upon us, though. Too bad.)

    I moved to Downtown Seattle from Sacramento 11 yrs ago and stood in the downtown area for 3 years, work was down the street, i could walk home for lunch, i lived on 4th and Vine, watering holes within walking distance, the Seattle Center was right around the corner (literally). During the summer, id get off work catch some drinks at my fave bar then walk to pioneer square to attend a mariners game. Life was awesome, perfect town/area to be in when youre single.
