    Agreed. Never thought Iíd be into the desert thing, but Sedona and Utah changed that for me.

    My sister lives in Indy and it's a fine city. Nothing more, nothing less. Columbus is basically the same to me.

    Not terribly familiar with the rest. I don't care for Jacksonville, however. But I don't care for Florida as a whole, so...yeah.

    I live in Pittsburgh which I think gets its due slightly more than those cities, though perhaps a little less than it should. I absolutely love it. Its standing has certainly been rehabbed but the coal/steel/poor/smog/whatever image many think of it as, and what it certainly was, still persists. That's all in the past. It's a booming healthcare/finance/tech city with strong colleges, a young population and some great natural scenery. Underrated foodie and beer city, too, with tons of unique and distinguishable neighborhoods.

    The crown jewel of the Rust Belt, for whatever that's worth!

    We spent 5 days in Sedona and the weather during that time wasn't too extreme, although I live in the San Fernando Valley so I'm pretty used to the dry climates. However the day that we drove back we had to drive through a monsoon and that was one of the craziest things I've ever witnessed. I couldn't see more than 10 yards in front of us so we had to go super slow and you would see flashes of lightning strike the mountains around us and start fires all while it's coming down like God raining vengeance. Scary but plain awesome.

    Also everyone should visit Big Sur if they ever get a chance. Go to Pfeiffer Beach, eat at Nepenthe, Point Lobos, much more

    Pfeiffer Beach is a hidden slice of Heaven

    That water sure looks rough and choppy. I'm not sure I would possibly risk my life for ice cream. {LOL}

    I love Big Sur. The drive out of Paso Robles and up the coast to Big Sur (and into Montery/Pebble Beach) is some of the best driving there is.

    Pfeiffer is my favorite spot there too. Great beach and dog friendly which is rare in SoCal

    It's a remarkably nice city. Much nicer than St. Louis lol.

    I'd live there in a heartbeat.
    Iíve heard nice things about KC, but I love St. Louis. I was born and raised here. Itís a great city to raise a family. Itís a small city. The food scene has improved by leaps and bounds over the last decade. Thereís plenty to do, especially near the river. I can see a ballgame and be back on the Illinois side in less than 15 minutes from getting in my car.
