    And seriously, most places have a lot of the same stuff. There are hot spots for certain things, like San Diego being a craft beer wonderland, or Austin having tons of live music, good BBQ and tons of bars on 6th Street that are packed Thurs-Sun with tons of stuff going on in the street.

    If you think a city is lame you were probably just doing it wrong.
    Amen.

    I have lived in 17 states, 5 countries, and visited just about every major city in the U.S. multiple times and I have loved it everywhere .. except one city.

    It's an obvious overstatement to say having fun is completely up to you. But, yeah, you've got to have good people. ...you're more likely to find those people in certain cities, so, round n round we go. Blandiego.

    If I were choosing based on places I'd live:
    1. LA
    2. SF/Oakland/Berkeley
    3. Chicago

    I really like NYC, but I can't imagine living there for longer than a year or two.

    Good list. I was pleasantly surprised to see Miami not listed. I've lived there twice and it was okay, but way overrated imo .. try an hour south, though, heaven.

    Atlanta is a cool place not listed. Very under-rated.

    Seattle is my favorite out of that list, though San Francisco and NYC are really close behind. Denver is a fine city as well. I also like San Diego and Boston out of the major US cities I've been to.

    I have a strange crush on St. Louis. Everybody thinks I'm crazy for that one.

    What's the scoop on Philly? That is probably the one place no one has mentioned that surprises me. I've never been there though so maybe it's not worth mentioning.
    Reality:

    "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms." - Ephesians 6:12
