Attached ImageWhat is the most interesting city in the US? I've been to a few, and Washington D.C. gets my vote.

It's got politics, beautiful buildings, the Smithsonian Museums, good shows and great shopping.

I've been to most the major cities in the USA. I think I'd have to go with NYC as the most interesting. It's got a little bit of everything and can entertain and surprise you on each visit.

I liked Boston a lot too. It has some of the oldest buildings in the U.S. and a lot of history (as far as American cities go). Neat little ethnic areas as well.

D.C. is a cool place for a visit, though I definately wouldn't want to live there. You could probably spend a week just looking through the Smithsonian.

New Orleans is definately interesting. I haven't been post-hurricane. I hope it will get back to its former glory.

Las Vegas is interesting and certainly entertaining, but it also showcases the worst of America - greed, glutony... I'm always saddened to hear when I talk to travelers and they say on their visit to the USA they only saw LA and Vegas. It would be hard to pick two worse places for a real perspective of this country.

I'm not sure I could pick any of the west coast cities as "interesting". Seems most the highlights for us are the outdoor scenery on offer. The cities themselves aren't terribly exciting (though San Francisco would be my top pick for west coast cities). Portland used to have some interesting stuff - 24hr Church of Elvis, UFO Museum - but used to doesn't count for now.
