I'd like to nominate fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada as one of the most important cities in America. C'mon now. Be honest. Anybody can name the top cities by population, art, culture, ethnic mix, proximity to beaches, etc... What makes a city truly IMPORTANT? Could it be its place in the consciousness of the culture? Few cities have actual slogans associated with them that are known by virtually the entire population... and I'm not talking about nicknames per se.

New York - 'The Big Apple' (nickname) - 'The City That Never Sleeps' (slogan)
Chicago - 'The Windy City' (nickname) - uhhhhhh (can't think of their slogan)
Las Vegas - 'Sin City' (nickname) - 'What Happens in Vegas....' (slogan)

Search yourself. You know the truth. Vote with your heart. Vote Las Vegas as THE most IMPORTANT city in America.

Having been to Las Vegas many times (wife's family lives there), the only thing that appeals to me about the place is that it has more great restaurants per capita than just about anywhere. Other than that, I think it is the cheesiest place on the planet. I do not care for the place at all.

pdswife - you must be an interestng person to know. You have nailed it. Using that thinking, then the other ones are where distant, but loved family and friends live.

Not sure about that Adillo, I just think home and family are the most
important things in life.

You've got that right! Maybe I'll get in line at the Federal Reserve until I can buy some bills. I hear they're inexpensive right now.
