Underrated US Cities

post #1 of 237
Thread Starter 
Pittsburgh: I recently spent some time there and was pleasantly surprised. Then again, my expectations were pretty low. I expected a rust belt wasteland, akin to Buffalo or Cleveland. Pittsburgh turns out to be a charming, completely unpretentious city with decent food, and and music. It's the sort of place that I can live in at 35, but would have hated at 25.

Portland, ME: There's a definite Austin, TX vibe there.

Detroit. Fucking loved it. Moving there in April.

I actually like the city of Cleveland.

Some other picks would be Nashville, TN. Columbus, OH. Philadelphia. Boulder, CO.

Not sure what intent would have to say about it since he lives there but both my wife and I loved Portland when we went. And with Boston a few hours away you don't feel like you're too far out of the loop. I'd probably consider moving to Portland if there were any jobs available.

Atlanta is overrated by every black person in America.

The $300 homes available for one. You could go straight up slum-lord for like $10,000.

Any Northeastern or Midwestern city that isn't New York. Particularly, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Baltimore.

Kansas City
Saint Louis

Or maybe it's just the good connections I have in each. I especially love dining at the St. Louis Club ... (hint, hint, J-boy ... if you are reading this).

Hard to find one "underrated" in the truest sense of the word, but I think Indy is definetly overlooked often. Austin, TX is probably the only other city I would choose.
