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.

For me,t he appeal of New York is the ease of access to the stuff you want to do. In other cities, if I arrive unprepared, I can end up wandering around a deserted downtown district, wondering where the heck people go to eat and hang out. You have to know the neighborhoods, the small spots, and that's not easy info to pick up on the fly. New York, however, pretty much lays everything on the line for you. It's all easy, just about all of Manhattan is reasonably safe, the trains run all night, and you can always duck into a bookstore, grab a dining or nightlife guide, then be there shortly thereafter without any effort. I don't think I've found another city that offers obvious and easy access to things to do.

That said, I would still prefer London if only the weather was better. But then, that could just be because I live int he one but only visit the other, so the frustrations of calling a place home never manifest itself (and there are plenty of frustrations about calling New York home, at least for a country boy such as myself).

when traveling, though, I tend to enjoy smaller locations justa s much, if not more than the cities. I'd love to go back to Rome, for example, but I'd REALLY love to go back to Montepulciano.
