Default Favorite U.S. City

My wife and I are having a discussion. Were not world travelers by any stretch but weve been a few places. We were talking about our favorite places and discussing where to go next. NYC is our favorite and Boston is our number 2. We diverge from there with her liking Chicago and me liking Memphis. With that said, what are your favorite cities to visit in the U.S.? I like anything with history so Im interested in all the Revolutionary cities.

Nicest place I’ve been to in the US is Oregon. I’m actually going for training again I’ll be in Portland for 3 weeks. It’s absolutely beautiful when drive along the coast. Been to NYC before it was ok.

Haven't traveled much but so far I liked a lot of the small cities in Wyoming and Montana.

Cheyenne and Sheridan have a lot of historical places and Billings and Great Falls were really cool. Great Falls has the Charles M. Russel Art Museum and it's awesome.

Excluding Texas? I don't like big cities so I'm going Vegas easily.

North America? The most good looking women I've ever seen was in Vancouver. The city was clean. Very little fast food. Traffic was the worst I've ever been in. Yes, worse than LA.

Casper WY is high on my list. Anchorage AK was outstanding! Maui HI was fun. But my all time favorite place to be. . . San Angelo TX!

More so due to the memories there than anything else but I love that town.

I think Breckenridge, CO. would have to be my favorite. NYC is cool for people watching. DC cool for the museums/history. Nothing in Hawaii really floated my boat. I prefer smaller towns with elevation changes and scenic views.

Cody, Wyoming is one of my favorite places. Wyoming, Montana and Idaho is my favorite part of the country to travel to. I like driving for miles without seeing a thing other than Mountains, hills, sagebrush and antelope.

Just left the game. The history is cool but I couldnt care less about professional sports. History is high on my list as far as likes. I think I liked NYC for all the old architecture. Seeing how different groups live is interesting to me. It makes me realize how hard national politics really is. Trying to make laws work in both NYC and west Texas at the same time is dang near impossible. Not to turn this thread to politics though.

Boston and NYC (Manhattan) are both very clean and that seems to be important to me.

What makes yall enjoy the places you like?
