    Of course we like/love Vegas but what other cities do you like to visit and why ?

    I enjoy Atlanta and Philly

    Philly gets a bad rap .......... so much history, a great zoo, South Street is awesome, Eastern State Penitentiary is incredible. And the mass transit makes it very easy to get around. Plus there are so many great neighborhood bars everywhere you go. Everybody thinks Philly is loaded with ******** but in all the times we have been there I have only had 2 problems 1. a train conductor and 2. a taxi cab driver. Everyone else - fall all over nice.

    Atlanta - I'm a huge Braves fan, the zoo and aquarium - World Class aquarium ..... if you don't visit this in ATL then you truly missed an opportunity.

    Tampa/St Pete for spring training baseball...........you plan your day right and you can make 3 games in one day. Clearwater,Sarasota, etc all a short drive from St Pete where we normally stay. St Pete has one of my favorite bars The Ringside Cafe.

    San Francisco - great food, fantastic vibe and fun to walk around (Seattle has the same attributes).
    Salt Lake City - clean, compact downtown area, easy access to historic sites.
    Key West - compact "downtown" and a great vibe.
    Manaus - culture, history, location and weather.
    Venice - c'mon, it's Venice!
    Cairo - vibrant, amazing street activity, food and history

    I LOVE San Francisco... always have... I agree with UTE, Seattle has many of the "same attributes", though I've only been there once. Also LOVE New Orleans (French Quarter). I can take or leave the rest of the town. Chicago would be in my Top 3 (outside Vegas) as well. Love me some Michigan Ave.

    Previously mentioned: Philly (very underrated--Reading Terminal Market, all the historical stuff obviously, and of course cheesesteaks), Chicago, San Francisco, New Orleans.

    Others:

    Madrid (lots of fun, lots of culture, lots of great food)
    Mexico City (has a bad reputation but it's my favorite big city in the world)

    Pensacola/Destin area- I'm from there and love those white sandy beaches. Miss it every summer.
    San Antonio-- Just love walking around and taking this city in for some reason.
    Philly fan here also. I try to explore something new every time I go. I'm a Flyers fan for life!!

    Truly something for everyone: the foodie, the shopper, the architecture buff, the spiritual, the partier, the perve.

    One city that surprised the hell out of me was Bangalore. So green and temperate, with both traditional and modern India as well as worldwide influences represented. I'd vacation here often if it weren't 24 hours away.

    Seattle downtown, just the vibe. We've been there 3 times now.
    Scottsdale for Spring Training. Very walkable downtown. Also been there 3 times.

    We've been to a lot of other cities, but most are one and done.
