And Vancouver, what about Gastown, Chinatown, or Stanley Park?
    Whatever you do, try to time your visit during the Fremont Fair (June 21-23), where they have the world's trippiest costumes outside of Burning Man. Do NOT Google for images if you have NSFW concerns.

    Snowqualmie Falls has a 268-foot breathtaking waterfalls. And if you book a breakfast at the Salish Lodge & Spa, you can have a 7-course meal while watching it. I did it in 1983. It was awesome.

    You can also ride up to Mt. Rainier and have a snowball fight in August, like I did with my little brother.

    ^^ Re. Seattle: Capital Hill, Ballard and Queen Anne are all good places get good food and shop. My SIL lives in Capital Hill and it's always easy to walk around and find good food. Traffic in Seattle is nightmare-ish, so beware around rush hour. Pike Place market is just amazing, I wish I lived in Seattle because I would go there weekly to get flowers. Plus, once you are down around Pike Place you can always take a ferry over to Bainbridge Island. Also, check out West Seattle and Alki Beach.

    I spent a year of college in Ireland and came to love some of the small towns there. They were just small and gorgeous. I really loved Salzburg and would love to be able to spend more time there. Paris is just magical. It's cliche, but I have been twice and loved it both times. I know a lady who lived there for years and she would get really tired of it, but as a tourist it is pretty great. The museums can't be beat.

    Glad to hear some of you out there like Portland, OR. I love it here, rain and all

One of my married neighbors in my apartment complex tried to hit on me at least twice. Umhmm, HE sure did. He was married to an ex-hooker from the Philippines; I've never seen so many guys married to ex-hookers congregated in one area, other than National City, CA, which is right outside San Diego too.
    Aw! I miss SoCa (weather) but we lived at Lemon Grove *shudder* then on the outskirts of El Cajon (by the Community College), then on Broadway, nearly in the heart of downtown. I loved that apartment, we could see Coronado/bridge from the kitchen (& watch the drugs raids helo from the roof!). I wanted to live near the beach but it never happened. I love LA, the feel of it, the small of it (yeah, really) and the weather; but I got lost in Chatsworth one time and its weird. I went to a MacDonalds for a drink & to use the restroom & a couple of the guys (customers) there stared at me all the way in & all the way out.... It felt like a tiny town in that sense, rather than part of a big metropolis.
    Being a crappy map reader I got off the freeway at the wrong exit, but was still able to find my way due to mainly the "grids" of blocks. Took me ages to get home though.

No TV, no phone, no makeup, no razors, no swimsuit. Paradise. But having little kids now, it's good to have a lot distractions and things to see at different hours.
    We have been camping as a family all over rural france and we used to take playing cards and books (imagine that when there was no kindles! Books for four for four-six weeks). During the day we visited Chateaux, Cathedrals, Art Galleries, etc. I highly recommend it.

    Oh, and I'd love to go to NYC.

    Then I could think of a dozen places outside the US that I wanna see before I die.
    As I may have said before I have happy memories of an Diego, it has some great parts and some not-so-great-parts. Try to avoid divey-sailor-dives and you'll see the best of it.

    I like going up into the mountain & having snow & apple pie in the morning/lunchtime & sitting on the beach at sunset. That I found totally amazing.

    Effie I'd love to go to Athens, it looks fantastic. Greece in general I'd love to visit, beautiful weather, amazing food, lovely people, flying flowerpots and loads of history. Le sigh.

    I'm off to York this weekend to visit friends, can't wait! It looks like there's loads to do and it's really pretty too. I shall report back.
    I smile because I have no idea what's going on

    Is it race weekend? I hope not because it'll be full of arseholes and they have a weird door policy... However there is loads to do - York isn't that big, the castle, the shambles area, the cathedral, etc & the shopping is quite good too.
    My fave shop is a little tea shop (selling not serving) at the bottom end of the shopping area (might even be in the shambles), I've got some good stuff from there!

    Love:

    Washington, D.C. -- but the people ARE snobs about where they got their education
    Boston -- except for the crazy drivers
    San Francisco -- although the people weren't very friendly
    Florence -- charming
    Rome -- visually astonishing, vibrant

    Only to visit:

    New York -- claustrophobic, too big, too many people, not enough trees, too much traffic
    Charleston -- charming, but too hot and humid
    Chicago -- too big, too expensive, racially troubled
    Santa Fe -- charming, but it's in a desert
    San Antonio -- lovely to visit, but too hot and humid
    Orlando -- too humid, too touristy
    Venice -- fascinating, but it probably smells when the weather is warm

    Hate:

    Syracuse -- ugly, bad winters
    Buffalo -- ugly, brutal winters
    Las Vegas -- although it may be better now (but I don't gamble)
    Cleveland
    Toledo -- ugly, nothing going on there
    Atlantic City -- once you get beyond the boardwalk, it's all a ghetto

    Nice places to live:

    Dallas (and probably Fort Worth)
    Madison, WI
    Columbus
    Charlotte
    Indianapolis
