Fort Worth. Went there for a week and thought it was a nice city.

Nashville is a very clean city. The people are friendly, and the atmosphere is very relaxing. It's also a cultural oasis in the south.

Most of the east coast outside of NY is underrated.

Everyone loves Savannah as a tourist and thinks it's amazing.

It's not as much fun to live there.

There is no Whole Foods, a complete lack of mid-range restaurants, and I'm not sure if there is a farmer's market or not. And while it's fun to walk around with an open container, the novelty of stepping in puke on the sidewalk every Saturday, Sunday, and Monday wears off quickly.

Cincinnati is great to visit, but not to live. I dump on it all the time as a transplant coming from Connecticut (which is great because it has the best location in the United States), but there is a lot to like. 1. Decent symphony 2. Surprisingly good food (Nicola, Via Vite, Jean-Robert's Table, Jeff Ruby's, Orchids, Boca, Nada, Terry's Turf Club, etc, etc, etc) 3. Fair amount of culture (Contemporary Arts Center, Art Museum, etc) 4. Decent nightlife in Newport, KY 5. A bizzarely high concentration of utterly fantastic Indian hole-in-the-wall eateries. 6. The Hyde Park Kroger has a mini Murray's cheese shop in it Give me a long weekend, some friends, and a few grand and I can have a hell of time in Cincinnati. The problem is though, after that weekend you want to kill yourself. In between molotov cocktails getting lobbed at your car during race riots, fighting off homeless people en-masse, being accosted by the now-defunct ACORN to register to vote Democrat for the 50th time, and avoiding thousands of wrong way drivers on one-way streets, you might even have time to pack a t-shirt, umbrella, snow boots, and a baseball cap in your bag. You'll need it; it can be 75 in the morning and snowing at night. The people are nice, but outside of a few small circles they are fairly stereotypical. If you plan on living here in the long run, I hope you went to Elder high school (and played football) and love cornhole. I also hope you don't enjoy shopping - we have a Saks and a Nordstrom, but they're for show - they are filled with 100% John W Nordstrom shirts and Saks house brand coats. Oh, and Boss. They don't carry anything even midrange like Canali or Zegna. Want to try on a pair of Aldens, C&J, Santoni, or Tramezzas? Good luck - you'll have to drive to Chicago. In the mood for cooking up a nice Italian dinner? I hope you don't need prosciutto, because they don't carry it at the grocery store and when you do find a deli that has some, there's 50/50 odds they'll cut it thicker than a thanksgiving turkey. In short, I have a soft spot for Cincinnati. But I hate it at the same time.

I'm a fan of Columbus, Nashville, Charleston, Milwaukee, Minneapolis.

Whenever I'm there [and it's not frozen over] I always +1 this. It's a great city to raise a family. Has much of the "big city" feel without being as douchey as NYC.

Chicago is not underrated, by any means. Chicagoans use every opportunity to rep their city.
