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

    Whether for better or worse I have lived many places in the United States. I am always interested in what makes a place "great" for those that live their or have just visited the place.

    Granted to there are many drawbacks one of my favorite American cities: traffic, occasional air quality, taxes, cost of owning a home. But for an interesting lace to live (I am not so sure as a place to visit) Los Angeles offers me the interesting environment. Frequently, when learning I am from L.A., don't you miss the weather, sometimes I am truthful, and say what I really miss about L.A. are the people.

    Far from the "layed back" complacent place that East Coast folks have loved to look down their noses at as they try to cope with visiting the city. Angelenos are a hard working, industrious folk although it is true they are less full of themselves and more open to new ideas and different experiences than their peers in some other American cities.

    But what I like best about L.A. is the incredible variety of experience that the city offers. Whether it is the wide variety of ethnic neighborhoods that make up the city, or the range of locals (beaches to snow covered mountains in Winter), or the fine cuisine of some of the best restaurants in the country to faire on offer from the food trucks and mom and pop cafes. No other city comes close, except for NYC.

    What is your favorite city?

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

    I am 2.5 miles away from NYC and only been there 6 times in the last 10 years because I hate it so much lol

    I tend to prefer Rural area's with fresh locally grown produce in summer or small cities like Lancaster, Easton, Jim Thorpe,West Chester, Elk mountain P.A., Kingston N.Y.

    You are not alone in your dislike of NYC. My wife and son really despise the place. And you are also not alone in not going to large cities. When I lived in New Jersey (Moorestown) I knew many people who had never been to NYC (which was only 90 miles away) and many who rarely went to Philadelphia (even though it was 15 miles away) and even some that had never been to Philadelphia!

    You seem to know what you like and the type of place that satisfies you and where you feel comfortable. That is good!

    My b.f. is from down that way and he even hates everything about North jersey he cant grip the fact that it takes 45 minutes to get to the mall that is 4 miles away lol

    Your description is 100% I guess it is a Jersey thing but what do expect when people only recognize only one of the 4 parts? lol

    I am getting ready to explore V.A. next week Doswell, Williamsburg ect.. I wanna see one of those Stuckeys places lol

    Hope you will enjoy Williamsburg, although it is pretty crowded this time of year. I prefer some of the more western towns like Lexington and Staunton. Virginia is loaded with history .... even more so than New Jersey because of the Civil War as well as the battle grounds of the Revolution. Along with all the historical sites Virginia is also a state with a variety of beautiful areas: the Blue Ridge and Apalachian mountains, the Shenandoah Valley and the Tidewater area (Williamsburg, etc). By and large the people are pleasant

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

    Fairbanks, Alaska because of the weather and the people. When you talk to somebody on the street you have no idea what their story might be. There are very few that are here by chance. The winter weather takes care of that. A happenstance of life that might be considered an adventure somewhere else can rapidly expand into a life threatening experience in the blink of an eye. People have a different outlook on life. If you can't fend for yourself you could wind up in big trouble. On the other hand the scenery and the ambience is unmatched anywhere. If you are looking for solitude it is here. If you want to pit your wits against mother nature, this is the place. If you want to interact with friendly, sociable people they are here. If you want to live the life of a hermit you can do that too. There's nobody to tell you that you can't cut down the trees in your yard. There's nobody to tell you that you can't plant a garden. You can put up just about any size flagpole and fly as big an American flag as you want. The most heinous crime you can commit is to illegally kill a moose and waste the meat. We're different and proud of it.

    I really like Pittsburgh. It's clean, a nice size, people are usually nice as long as you are wearing Steelers gear. Things aren't priced too steep, and there is lots to do. The only thing I really dislike is the driving situation. With those rivers, one missed turn could mean a 7 mile detour!

    Not a fan of Cities. I have been known to appreciate many forests, villages and mountains though.

    Sacramento. My uncle lives in El Dorado hills, a small city 20 miles east of Sacramento. I visited him two months ago and stayed at his house which faces Folsom lake. What a clean, beautiful, and classy place to be and live!

    I loved Baltimore when i went down there with my Father 8-10 years ago in his STS. But i pretty much hate all city's because the people there all seem to be nasty people. Went to NYC had people bumping into me and such no sorry nothing just kept walking also the roads suck and everything there costs way to much $$$$.

    Another reason to love that area is that the housing is not crazy expensive! 300k buys you a very, beautiful, clean house in that area!
