I love my home city of Nashville, but out of the places I've visited.....

1) Honolulu
2) Las Vegas
3) Toronto

Those are my top 3. In the state of Tennessee I absolutely hate Memphis. Chattanooga isn't bad for a smaller city. Knoxville is alright. I doubt I'd go up there much though if they didn't have like all of my family and the Vols.

I really want to go to NYC and Boston soon.

Montreal is pretty ******* awesome. Living in Ottawa almost all of my life I have taken many a road trip there. It was nice being able to go to Quebec at age 16 and even though I looked like I was 12 I still rarely got carded.

I would say after New York for me Toronto is my second favorite. Every year on of the things I most look forward to is the Toronto International Film Fest so there is that and on top of that there is just so much to do there any time.

I would have to agree. The reputation that NYC has been given throughout the years, I have found not to be true. Everyone I asked for directions were very helpful and It wasn't as dirty as expected. I would love to get back down the city to see what I missed like Rockefeller Center and a couple other things. Also to see the New Yankee Stadium because that place looks amazing.

I am driving 35 hours to Vegas this fall. I am really looking forward to it. The trip will be brutal but I will have substances which I cannot speak of to keep me company. I want to make the trip in honor of Hunter S Thompson and I just hope our trip isn't cut short at the border because of this.

I went to Boston last summer and it was pretty great. I found it fairly easy to get around and there was plenty to do.

Its pretty good although Regent street with all the really good shops is really, really long. Soho's quality as well. Nightlife is alright but compared to anywhere i've ever been it was really expensive. But that's to be expected.

Once I get some money together Amsterdam is the first place I want to travel to. I am not going for the 'chill' atmosphere that you have described though, it is solely for the legal drugs and red light district. I am hoping to make it an extended trip because I really want to see Paris and London. I am such a huge fan of England (I have a huge weakness for the accent) and I really cannot wait to see it. I also want to see Ireland and Scotland but that will likely have to wait a while.

I love it. The night life is pretty good. The girls are pretty good depending on where you are. The food is good. One of the biggest things is your opinion on homeless people. There's not like a ton down there BUT a lot of the homeless street perform, so if you don't mind them (like me) it's awesome! If you do, it's not really a downside. You'll probably love it if you like country music. I hate country music and I still love it, it's just that the HOF is there and a lot of the bars have country music performers playing.

meh. Vegas has nothing that South Florida doesn't (including the gambling) except dry weather that gives me nose bleeds and chapped skin.

Actually I take that back; I do like the fact that it is so centrally located and they have a better public transportation system to take you from one spot to the next..but..besides that, I have no reason to even want to to Vegas again. I did bring back a good strip club story from there though. 8)

You can also get this at your local beer distributer. I used to get 24 packs of MGD for 2 bucks a case cuz the beer was expired. To be honest there is no difference in taste at all.

Last time I talked to my friend who lives a bike ride from the plant, he said it was like $4-5 for a 12 pack of misprinted Coors Light. And it was probably canned that day, so you have to appreciate that.

I've heard that but if he's at the plant, might as well get it as fresh as can be.

Lies! Chatt-town has the only Taco Bells until the South Pittsburgh exit (which is fast food heaven), and we have Krystals!

KRYSTALZ!!!

The great thing about Memphis, Nashville, Knoxville, and Chattanooga is that they're all different from one another. They all have a different feel. Where as Chattanooga you're like, "Oh look! A mountain!" in Memphis you're like, "Oh look! A drive-by!"

Anyway, New York City is my favorite city, but Chattanooga and Memphis hold a special place in my heart.

most overrated city btw IMO is Las Vegas.

I completely agree. Its definitely is not worth the hype that everyone gives it. I went for my little brother's 21st a couple of weeks ago and he wanted to party in New York New York but the wait was at least 2 hours. We got cards that said free admission earlier that day so we went up to the guys at the front and asked what to do with those. He said with those cards you could either wait in the 2-3 hour line or skip it completely and buy at least one bottle of liquor. You may think thats not bad but here comes the catch. He tells us that the cheapest bottle of liquor they sell is $295. The thing is, if you have boobs and a vagina and there is more than one of you there with no guys then you get in absolutely free with no wait at all. Its blasphemy....I would rather spend my money on the shows and nice dinners rather than the slots. The funnest part of the trip was riding the XScream on top of the Stratosphere. Its crazy if anyone gets a chance to ride it.

I haven't traveled much at all. The only country outside of the U.S. has been Canada. I was planning on going to Brazil this year, but I had to back out because of more important obligations. I've also only been to seven or eight states.

With that said, I think Boston has been my favorite city. I did not care for New York. I see why people like it a lot, but it's just not for me. I've also been to Chicago but we weren't there long enough to give it a fair evaluation.

Juneau, Alaska during the summer.

I like the Cleveland area, but I don't live there and most of my family does so I'll fly out there and there's always good food and plenty of fun things to do (except the Browns always lose when I go see them).

I really like Norcal despite my extreme hate for the word "hella".

Barcalona - not normally a fan of big cities, but i found it to be truly amazing

Buenos Aires - the nightlife, the ridiculously hot girls that are fascinated by Australian dickheads, the food...all add up to make an awesome place

Puerto Escondido - best beach break in the world and a really chill place

Rio de Janiero - i could sit on Ipanema beach drinking beer for the rest of my life and be quite happy

Amsterdam - you all know the deal with this place

La Paz - read the book 'marching powder' and i promise you'll want to go there

That's the top 6 that i've been to, don't think i could live in in any of them besides Barcalona but they were just awesome to visit.

i like cities that have their own feel and identity. and when i travel, i like to see the sights, eat the food and drink the beer.

1-Seattle

2-DC

3-Milwaukee-yeah, someone said it. go there during the summer, and it's a blast. walk around downtown and hit up a couple brew pubs, then go to the Summerfest grounds for whatever ethnic festival they have that week. serioulsy, any time food, beer and live music get together, it's always a good time...doesn't matter if it's Irish Fest, Italian Fest, German Fest, One-Legged-Lesbian Fest. always fun.

I'd really like to go to Portland, and some random big cities in the northeast...Nashua, NH or Bangor ME. i think i'd enjoy those places.

LEAST favorite cities:

-Detroit. even though i've only been to the airport, i still hate it. it's a big hub for airlines, so it seems every time i fly, i end up in Detroit for many many many hours.

-Minneapolis/St. Paul-really. nothing good in these cities.

----also, i've never been there, but i don't think i'd like Vegas. like i said earlier, i like cities that have their own identity...and Vegas just seems like a whole city of fakeness.

Well, it has everything. Living here you get use to the traffic and the size of it, although, it doesn't seem that big to me, since I do a lot of traveling around L.A. and Orange county. And for me, being a big music fan, the scene here is the best. And there is a bunch of other stuff that makes it better then your cities.

Well how about you get off your high horse and calm down a little. Considering i can smoke weed and go to a brothel here why would those be the reasons i like Amsterdam so much? Sorry for liking something in your home country, i'll try not to do it again.

Cities that appeal to me are usually the ones that give me a bit of a culture shock at first, yet still feel like a place you could get used to and feel at home in, Amsterdam happens to be one of those.

And think about it, i listed La Paz, a place where you can buy cocaine and marijuana over the bar in 4 different licensed establishments, so i really don't think the excitement of partially legalised marijuana was the reason for me liking Amsterdam.

Thankfully because of work I've had the opportunity to do quite a bit of traveling. That being said:

1). Madison, WI
2). Chicago
3). San Francisco
4). Cabo-Best place in Mexico, by far and I've been to 6 other destination cities
5a). NYC
5b). Washington DC
6). Boston
7). Minneapolis-To the person that said there's nothing to do there, they obviously were there during the winter and didn't go out at nights
8). Munich
9). Montego Bay, Jamaica
10). Puerto Vallarta
11). Miami
12). Cancun
13). Atlanta
14). Philadelphia-I wragged on it before, but now that I'm no longer living in Center City and going there every week, I admit, I miss it...
15). Denver



Worst Cities:
1). Heidelberg, Germany-Nothing to do, don't accept credit cards, which is annoying
2). Mazaltan-Never been more happy to come home from Spring Break
3). Newark-Yikes
4). LA
5). Frankfurt

I'm discounting places like Detroit, Dallas, Houston and several other cities that I wasn't in for more than a few days so can't formulate a good opinion on them.

PS: Going to Paris and Nice this summer with the girlfriend. Any recommendations? Basically doing all the standard tourist stuff in Paris for 5 days and then spending 4 days in Nice. Plan on taking a boat cruise to St. Tropez if its worth it...

I went to school there and will put my college experience against ANYONES and that alone made it the best city for me. It will always have a soft spot in my heart and will always be my favorite place to go back and visit.

No, absolutely not. Champs Elysses is meh if you dont like shopping, but I assume your including the arc in that part of your itinerary.

Some others:

Saint Chapelle is a cant miss........the stained glass is absolutely amazing

The Rodin Museum.......sculpture mainly and has the Thinker

Musee l'Orangerie........some good stuff

The Picasso Museum.......I'm not a Picasso guy, but its a nice collection

Seriously tho......its going to be tough doing all that if you are a museum guy......I spent a good 3 days in the Louvre and didnt really feel like I saw it all, the place is amazing.

And I know some night spots, but night life is generally expensive in Paris.......there are a few cheap spots tho. I usually just bought beers at stands and snuck them into bars......buy one beer at the place and keep filling it under the table.

Never been to Paris but studied French for years and a couple of places that you should think about adding(IMO) are:

Montmartre and The Sacre Couer
Latin Quarter
Sainte-Chappelle
The Pantheon
Pere Lachaise

Seems like you got a pretty full itinerary anyway but those were some of the places that seemed the most interesting to me in my studies. Oh ya, and while you are in Nice you might want to go to Cannes and Monaco which are both relatively close.

little sketch, but the entire area surrounding it, stellenbosch is gorgeous, a cyclists paradise... and the beaches are top notch... cape is like rio only more english speaking and less nuts...

on chicago: if you really dive into what chicago is, there's more sustenance than miami, the true amalgam of cultures makes chicago wonderful... and besides, it's like new york without all the douchebaggery...

i will admit the el sucks, the cta in general sucks, but part of that is due to the inability of mayor richard j. daley to actually tax people to use city streets to cut down on congestion and make them want to use our great public transportation services that we could have instead of cutting routes because everyone is driving.
