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 donít think itís a fair question being that:
1) The US is a huge country
2) The nation is actually a union of 50 countries with their own unique style and culture all connected by a common bond of language, currency and trade agreements.

Itís almost like asking what is your favorite city in Europe, or S. America?

That being said I donít think one can answer that.
In NYC you can be in for two months and not be able to take advantage of all the city has to offer, you can spend a good two weeks in Washington DC just walking around the national mall and several days in Philadelphia before you start seeing the actual city. You can spend months in Las Vegas and not see anything, spend years in LA and not feel like you belong, or be in Dallas for three hours and call it home.

I guess thatís why people keep coming back.

Iíve actually had this conversation with a co-worker today, sheís from India and said something about ďAmericansĒ Ė I told her that you cannot make such a general statement because our area (NJ/NYC) is not ďAmericaĒ, but a small section of it and is not representative of the country in any way, shape or forum.
