    Best big US city?

    You see topics veering into city hate/love a lot on these boards so I'm just curious what city will win.

    But this spanish town "Chiago" does sound interesting.

    It doesn't upset The Nuschler that his most beloved Franchise has gone 2 out of the last 3 for the World Series Championship after all the years of heartbreak.

    I've always enjoyed the streets of Otherlist, and the many parks and views, not to mention the weather is perfect.
    The people are nice, and there is absolutely no smog.

    Otherlist is off the chizain!

    Best for what? Living? Vacationing? Getting laid? Your question is very obscure.

    LOL

    I love Chicago. Awesome sports city(Doesn't get any better than Wrigley Field), Amazing food, Friendly people and awesome pub transport(L Train). Only downside is the weather sucks. Brutal winter(makes SLC feel like Hawaii) and Brutal summers. So hot and humid. I've been there five times in the last couple of years and can't wait to go back again.

    GO CUBS!

    Been to LA, Seattle, Boston, NYC, Miami, Dallas, Houston, San Diego, Denver, Chicago, among a few other interesting towns that are not quite Big Cities but far and away I think San Francisco was the best. Absolutely gorgeous with a lot to do.

    My second favorite city is Austin, gods I love that town.

    I lived in San Diego for about 6 years. My sister and my wife's sister both live there. It's my second home. I actually have a hard time calling it a big city. If it wasn't part of California and housing prices weren't so high I might be living there now, but I actually love the SLC, so probably not.

    Great craft beer culture there. Really a craft brew mecca.

    Friendly people. Attractive women. Native American casinos abound. 72F year round.

    Pretty great place.

    Boston is a much better sports town. Plus they actually win. All 4 majors sports teams(Patriots, Red Sox, Bruins and Celtics) have won in the last decade.

    Fenway > Wrigley

    Approach a stranger on the street to ask an innocent question and be prepared to be treated like a dunce. I sometimes want to go back, I lived in Zion, IL., but man, the people piss me off.

    What is considered big? Is Austin considered big? Is New Orleans considered big? Those would be 1a, 1b choices, but they aren't nearly as big as of the ones listed.
    :^D
