    I love San Francisco. It is lovely beyond belief. It has great weather, food, and scenery. You can't go wrong.
    I despise Houston. It is a sprawling mess without any character whatsoever. It seems to have been thrown together without any plan for traffic or architecture. Driving there is a complete nightmare. The homes look like McMansions.

    ETA- I had to add how much I loved Salzburg. It was a small beautiful town. Austrian food is nothing to get excited about but everything else makes up for it. The Alps are not far away and their parks are lovely.

    I like every city I have visited since I always find something unique about the city to enjoy.

    My favorites are LA, NYC and Toronto.

    Salt Lake City is rich in design and Washington D.C. is full of history.

    And I love the food and culture in Lancaster, PA.

    So many cities to see and so little time!

    I like Washington DC for visiting, but I find the residents insufferable. The queens are so elitist down there. I thought people were exaggerating, but no, they weren't.

    I hate, hate, hate Milano. It's the ugliest city of Italy. I wish I could work somewhere else, but that's the only place in Italy where the economy isn't dead.

    I love San Francisco, London, Lisbon, Dublin, Florence.

    I love Stockholm and Oslo. If it just would be a bit cheaper.
    Also, Vilnius is beautiful.

    Funny how everyone who lives in Milano, hates it actually. You could also go to Alto Adige, there the economy is also pretty good (but a lot is in German).

    Sigh, there are so many places I'm dying to visit. I'm trying to convince my friend to drive through the USA with me for a few months one summer, think I'm wearing her down

    My favourite place I've been so far is Rome, it's so beautiful and full of history and just amazing. Love love love it. I also love Edinburgh and Paris too. I really enjoy London but not sure I could live there for very long, too many assholes. On a road trip I randomly ended up in Freiburg in Germany and loved it, the people were so lovely and the city and surrounding countryside were gorgeous.

    I've enjoyed most cities I've visited but I hated Marseille, it felt really unsafe, thankfully I was only there for a little while. I also didn't really get NYC, I'm guessing I went at the wrong time of the year (couple of days before Christmas) and with my former in-laws, so I'd like to go back and try it again with people I actually like to see if I have a better time.

    So true about Forth Worth and Dallas. I was always more impressed with the museums in Fort Worth than in Dallas. Dallas rocks, though.

    New Orleans: great city if you don't go during Mardi Gras.

    Houston: Honestly? You need gills to breathe. It's super humid, with the stench of neighboring oil refineries on top of the humidity. Over-crowded. Also, nothing pretty to see there.

    Atlanta: I found it to be more humid than Houston. But at least Atlanta has some pretty sights.

    Nashville: *sigh* Love, love, love it!! Beautiful. Wish I could live there.

    Savannah: Gawgeous!!

    Galveston: this is absolutely my favorite little "island". It's quaint, romantic and has the coolest vibe. Sort've a Victorian/Cajun/Good Ol Boy fusion. If you haven't been, you MUST visit!

    Denver: Loved it. Hated the extreme cold but the scenery makes up for it.

    Austin: Great climate, cool restaurants and awesome music scene but the residents try too hard to be "cool". The whole "Keep Austin Weird" gets old really quick. It's like there are tons of pseudo-hippies going around screaming: "Look at me! I'm weird and I live in Austin so I'm not going to bathe."
    You are clearly insane! How can someone hate Houston and LOVE Galveston? Galveston is one of the nastiest fucking places I've had the misfortune to visit! BLECH! We may go for lunch on occasion, but that is IT! Houston has plenty of lovely things - you just have to know where to go... and I see something fairly beautiful every morning that I go to work:

    I love it and it is beautiful everydamnday! Museums, historical sites, etc. Great food... so much good food! Friendly fuckers ... some assholes (a lot of assholes) too!

    We're higher in elevation and way farther inland, and that helps temper it a bit, but these last few summers, oh boy
    HEY! I ain't got gills!

    One thing I've observed is that for the most part Houstonians and Dallasites get along like oil and water or the bloods and crips Makes the Melbourne-Sydney rivalry and the one-sided San Francisco-Los Angeles rivalry (most Angelenos couldn't give a shit what San Franciscans think of them) look like child's play in comparison.
    I don't know what that shit is about! I'm no native and one of these days, I'm getting the feck outta here! Just the fact that Texas has to have the Dallas Cowboys & the Houston Texans tells you a little bit...

It makes a fun day trip to do the Texas wine tour.
    Throw in Brenham, Chappel Hill... I love those little towns, the hills, the bluebonnets - so beautiful!

    Now when I lived in Dallas, I found everyone I met to be welcoming and friendly and I lived and worked in the Park Cities/Uptown/Preston Road area. *shrugs*

    And oh yeah. True about the MAJOR rivalry between Houston and Dallas.
    pbbfft!

    I honestly, can love/like any place I happen to be. I think it comes from being uprooted & drug around as a child. There are good and bad in every place you go. I like a town with a lake, friendly people, decent restaurants, a good school system and roads that don't fecking flood!

    Don't listen to 'em! The biggest complaints are the heat - justifiably so. Right now, it's in the 70's so, it's a good time to come.

    Just take an extra can of hairspray and you'll do fine. Fabulous restaurants and shopping.

    Oh McJag - you would be so very disappointed in me. I think it's been 25 years since I have owned any version of hairspray. Thanks for the totally unbiased reassurances! Our event is at the Petroleum Club, so from what I understand, I'll survive.

    But it floods in Houston all the time! Galveston just has a "vibe" to it that's unique. I spent alot of summers in Galveston growing up so it's a childhood thing for me. Apparently Glen Campbell liked it too since he sang a song about it.

    Galveston, oh Galveston
    I can hear your sea winds blowin'

    That's why I said I like a place that doesn't flood. I constantly curse the city planners and engineers involved in Houston's planning! Unbelievable!
