I havent read this whole thing but i'm amazed that Edinburgh isnt mentioned more

the largest arts/comedy festival in the world, events happening nearly all year round drawing in massive name celebraties, these guys invented celebrating new years and has one of the best parties in the world for it, lasting 5 days, the whole damn city is world herritage listed because of its gothic arctecture, there's a massive park in the middle of it, you can walk around the whole thing and its got the best bus system in the world.

the only thing its missing is good weather.

Edinburgh shits on 95% of cities listed here.

there's also not enough Barcelona. Too many American cities which are not New York too.

^^^I was considering putting it in my top 10, but it just missed out. It's a great city and has plenty going for it - I wouldn't have lived there for 3 years if it wasn't. I still like it, just not as much as the others...

These are my favorite cities I have been to, mainly because of art and architecture, museums and libraries I visited there. In terms of paying attention to fine food, style, and live music, even in my hometown, I'm pretty much oblivious, though I'm working on the style part. in no particular order: Rome - Capitoline Museum, St. Peter's and Vatican Museum, Galleria Doria Pamphilj, Pantheon Paris - The Louvre, Musee D'Orsay, Musee de l'Orangerie, Musée Jacquemart-André New York - Metropolitan Museum Washington D. C. - Haven't been in years. Boston - Museum of Fine Arts, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Fogg Museum, Boston Public Library, Boston College Libraries Martha's Vineyard - Love this place. I'd look to live or retire there if I could My favorite used book store is there, called The Book Den. Chicago - Art Institute of Chicago, Newberry Library Kyoto - Shinto temples. The city just had an amazing aura. Antwerp - Royal Museum of Fine Arts, Rubens' House, St. James' Church Cody, WY - surrounded by Yellowstone Nat'l Park. Buffalo Bill Historical Center was full of some great landscape paintings by Thomas Moran.

I like that you can actually buy literally anything there. Not that I want to. It's just nice to know that you can.

Yeah, it's a shithole.

Visited enough cities on business (and lived/worked in Manhattan early in career) to be satisfied with just one city and one suburb...travel sucks, even with a G550, let alone flying commercial and riding around in dumpy cars

SF and Woodside....SF for food; Woodside for nr-perfect yr-round weather; and amazing local topography for great drives in own perf car in mtns above Woodside....and a SiliconValley economy (and Stanford) that seem to attract many of world's smartest, most innovative guys who continually generate new wealth (to buy new toys)...and hot chicks (from wherever) will always travel to wherever the bucks are...

As to the grass being greener in LA and it being a dung hole ... per the Erma Bombeck saying ... the grass is always greener over the septic tank.
