    Quebec City and Vancouver BC, I was underwhelmed by Montreal.

    New York, Atlanta, Chicago, Philadelphia (I liked it for the American history, Likewise Boston area). Tampa.

    London, and my fave, Tokyo - New York in Japanese! Beautiful day trips to temple compounds (Kamakura) and mountain lakes.

    Boston not special? Boston is a great city with lots of US history. The Boston Museum of Fine Art has one of the most diverse collections in the US. Most of the collection is in storage because there is not enough room for display but that means that it is always changing. I can see why it is not special for Europeans though, it is probably the most European of all US cities and everything is old old old (which is rare in LA). Lots of parks, museums, historical sites, shopping. The endless amount of universities and their historical campuses (Harvard, MIT, etc).

    Not on the original list:

    Edinburg, Scotland

    SanFrancisco, California

    SanDiego, California

    Three days is probably not enough in these cities and they certainly offer something for everyone. I spent 5 days in Edinburg and it's still one of my favorite cities.

    LasVegas has it's place but it often closes in on me after two or three days. And if you don't like to drink, smoke, gamble or spend lots of money, be prepared to spend alot of time in your hotel room.

    A group of us should go and do a couple weeks in Europe and do all those cities... That would be fun!
    I think VirgoChik was talking about doing something like this. I know I'm interested...! -Aude.

    I say, if you want to hang out in San Diego and enjoy some lazy beach culture, that's fine. If you want to see interesting things, then 2 days at most will get you everything worth seeing.

    If you're going into Mexico, I recently came back from Guanajuato. It was a beautiful city, very cramped though...

    Actually, I am an outdoors type of girl. I get as far away as I can from large urban areas. I make an exception from time to time to visit museums, attend a sporting event, or a concert.

    My dream vacation would be do visit the geological wonders in each country I visit.

    Liverpool - home town of many great bands - Echo and the Bunnymen, Space, OMD; the ferry cross the Mersey, loads of museums and galleries, stunning architecture, great nightlife.

    Dublin - shopping, nightlife, a zoo, cathedrals, a castle, and every taxi driver is a comedian.

    Anchorage - it is in Alaska. Beer in jamjars and halibut on every menu.

    Edinburgh - very very very touristy, but the Royal Museum and the Museum of Scotland are smashing - and free. (Damn Socialist countries!)

    Destin/Panama City Beach, Florida: for the amazing white sand powder beaches, turquoise/green water you have ever seen!!!

    Fildalgo Island (Washington): amazing water/mountain/other island views everywhere, it is truly stunning!

    Banff : reminds me of a Canadian Swiss Alps. IF you are into photography like I am, the snapshots are endless

    Yosemite National Park (California): again, photographers heaven!!! Even if you aren't into photography, the endless picturesque scenes are breathtaking!

    I know the destinations are not cities...but for the traveler who wants beauty....and serenity, these are a must see!
