What is the PRETTIEST city you have ever seen?

I get to travel a lot for business. I have seen Paris (nice, but no great love for me), London (very nice, very clean), Berlin (techy, clean), New York (exciting, active)....but I just got back from Charleston, South Carolina and every time I find myself there, I find it looks MORE and MORE "pretty". Going over the big bridge and looking out at the city scape...it is SO ...beautiful.

SO....what is the prettiest city YOU have ever seen?

Oh gee... I have no idea!!!

Man made beauty- Suzhou, China. Dubbed the Venice of China with its waterways snaking through out the city. But it is not the river taxi's I go for. It is the whole city looks like it has been taken out of history and just placed in today's time. All the buildings are built to look ancient style with their heaven;y door ways, and dragon roofs.. even the bridges are ancient looking!!! And the gardens!!! Oh wow!! I cannot even begin to explain what they look like!

Natural- XilaMuren, China. Not too sure if this is actually the prettiest, but at the moment it is all I can think of. Nestled in the valley between some ancient mountains, the lush grasslands sport a range of still very traditional Mongolians. The Mongolian city with it's giant yurt and schools. The way the suns rays beam off the mountains, and you hear the rumble of the wind against the trickling sound of the river... the heat of the sun bearing down upon your flesh while the chilly breeze makes your hair swirl and fly... No sounds of builders, cars, or any city sounds...

But then I don't know if Kuggaaruk, Nunavut with its amazing view of the Northern Lights counts as well?

Every place I have ever travelled too, all throughout North America and China had their prettiest aspect to them. This is a hard question!!!!

For pure prettiness, Vancouver. (Not that I think that prettiness is the be-all-end-all marking of a great city. At all.)

Guatalajara is gorgeous.

I've not been out of the States and I've not travelled to terribly far so my idea of pretty city might be limited. I think the Smokey Mountains and my area which is also mountains is the nicest because it's relaxing. Love the beach, but prefer clean, relaxing mountains.

By far, Sedona, Arizona was the most gorgeous place I've ever been.



Cozumel, Mexico was also beautiful but the hurricanes and massive tourism have wrecked a lot of that.

I have not been to many different states, but I have to say the Columbus, Ohio is very pretty.

I have a few, for different reasons.

Mountains: Ouray, Colorado, and Telluride, Colarado. It's Galt's Gulch for a reason.

City: I think Washington DC is just gorgeous. The architecture, the monuments, the museums. I just love walking around.

Desert: Palm Springs, CA.

South: Savannah, Ga. There is a grand antebellum feeling in the architecture and the city plan. While the weather could be miserable, it had its moments of capturing true southern essence, and the flora was icing on the cake. I loved living downtown.

Coast: Newport Beach. The homes, the cliffs, and the surrounding towns are just awesome. And the weather is perfect. At all times.

Where I'd like to go for natural beauty: The Maine Coast

Detroit...no, not really.

There are cool parts, but I wouldn't describe the city as beautiful in the traditional sense.

I'd have to say Chicago, for cities I've been to.

For touristy places, Grand Haven (on the west coast of MI).

Venice. was absolute magic. the city that doesn't seem like it should exist. and the city is sinking.. y ou can sit on the cobblestone steps of a household front stoop and watch the city sink. it's incredible. so many years from now, it will be underwater, a modern-day, real-life atlantis, and i've WALKED those streets. so magical.

I haven't traveled very far away from my home in my lifetime, so I haven't seen too many big cities (though I think some parts of Philadelphia, my home, certainly have some merit even if other parts don't). I once took a trip with some friends to D.C. to see the cherry blossoms, and that was pretty lovely.

I'd love to see San Fransisco and London someday - and maybe more places!

a little town at the base of MT Fuji in Japan. It was old and forgotten, like time had passed it by.

I don't know, you guys, I think this is pretty fucking beautiful:



Nothing prettier than a good brisket. And in this picture, it almost looks like you can find parking in New York...
