And let's not leave out the city that brought you Dennis Kusinich (Presidential wanabe), the Cuyahoga River that caught fire on a regular basis during Dennis's reign as Emperor, and subsequently that fine elixer from the Great Lakes Brewing Co. called Burning River Ale. Also home to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the 0-3 Browns is this city with more last place statistics than I care to share. I bring you the "Mistake on the Lake," Cleveland, OMG, Ohio!

FYI, I live in the next county east of CLE, so I'm little affected by its poor performance politically, economically or athletically.

By 2010 the valley will be Mrs SK & I's new home, and we couldn't be more excited!! I Love Las Vegas!!!!
Of course, because I live here and because it's true, Vegas is the most exciting and fascinating city in America, no doubt about that and I too LOVE living here. As for being the most important? No. California feeds 3/4 of the nation so my vote goes to California.

Okay qmax, now I'm curious to know just what exactly do you find "cheesy" about the city of Las Vegas?

I love Vegas. It's a great place to go play for a weekend. Lots and lots of happy memories have been made there...more to come!

Well I hope it's only Tooele you have a grudge against and not Utah in general (I didn't know there was another fellow Utahn on DC besides LT!).

Move to Logan, it's great up here!

Let's see...

Phony New York City
Phony Paris
Phony Venice
Phony Eqypt
Phony Malaysian Resort
Phony Morocco



I'll relent on the point of restaurants (there are fabulous ones there) and I have seen a few good shows. But the gambling is completely lost on me.

My aunt and uncle lived in Logan for awhile. We loved visiting them there. I was a teenager and early twenties when we visited. I remember walking through the canals with our cousin--very cold! One thing that always stands out in my memory is that everything was so green and there were so many pretty flower gardens. We also loved going up to Cache Valley Cheese--watching them make the cheese in those huge vats, and buying cheese curds. Squeeky!

Awww come on now qmax. You gotta know that the one Strip of road, Las Vegas Blvd. is only 3 miles long and is not even 10% of what the city of Las Vegas is really about. There is more to offer in Vegas in terms of beautiful subdivisions, inexpenseive housing, schools, (one opened every month for 4 years) several good hospitals, shopping everywhere you look, and more things to do than any other city except New York. The Strip is NOT Vegas, it's the Strip. Hope you take a closer look at the rest of the city.
As for me I love New York and can't think of a more diversified city. Or one with the most to offer a foodie like me. Great markets, great ethnic food shops and great variety. Vegas loses in the ethnic food market category, just terrific restaurants and ton of them.

Ah, well qualified. Actually, my in-laws live in Henderson. I have been there many times.

That said, when just about anybody mentions Las Vegas, they mean the Strip. THAT SAID, I still dislike Las Vegas, WAY too hot in the summer, environment looks like a moonscape. No wonder the area was used as a nuke testing ground.

Nothing personal, but you can have it. It's near the bottom of my list as a place to go.
