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.

Interesting is definitely a relative term, for me it would have to be San Francisco, with Seattle, Anchorage, Vegas and Washington DC all close behind. (And Portland, but that's a personal affinity).

Of the (limited) US cities I've been to, I would say San Francisco and New York City are the most interesting. I'm basing "interesting" on the variety of things to do and the uniqueness of the cities, because that term is very vague.

I love Boston, but I've lived near it or in it my whole life and therefore find it difficult to see it's attraction as a tourist destination. I do find it interesting, but comfortable might be a more realistic description for me.
