My issue with this list is that all of these large cities have high humidity compared to out west. Of course, I'm also not interested in living in a large city but that was the intent of the list.

Lol, being born and raised in Manhattan, these list rarely float my boat. I'm a proud big city gal. If it doesn't have a subway, I'm not living there.

I'm in Philly now and love it, vibrant theater district and 90 minutes back to NY.
restaurants that do not belong to a chain.
I hated living in the suburbs, first, every thing closed at 10 pm. seriously and I knew I had to leave when going out to dinner meant going to a chain restaurant in the mall. I hated having to drive absolutely every where.

Now I do love the beach, so I want to be a snow bird, rent a condo on the beach for January, feb and March but after that I'm back in the city.

Tonight, free jazz concert at Penn's landing. love the city life

My darling girl, when are you going to realize that being "normal" is not necessarily a virtue? it sometimes rather denotes a lack of courage~Aunt Francis
