Which city is the coolest to live in USA / Canada ?


Hi,

Which city is the coolest to live in USA / Canada ?

My opinion is vancouver the best to live, but it is too cold.
California, Florida are very cool.

I thought "too cold" was another way of saying "better for winter sports"!

What you think is "cool" depends on what you are cool with! I like Traverse City Michigan myself. Anything less than an hour from Minneapolis or Vancouver could be just wonderful. Portland, if you are not driving.

Vancouver is too expensive, even its suburbs are. Good Chinese and Indian food though.

To be fair, OP was looking for cool, not cheap. But more affordable cool is more cool, up to a point.

Vancouver is the best city in Canada. Very expensive place to live.

I was born and raised in the Sunrise neighbourhood of Vancouver (a couple blocks west of the PNE). In fact my family goes back four generations in that general area. When I was 16 I worked as a line cook at Joe Fortes on Robson and made roughly $1,800 a month. A bachelor apartment 2 blocks off of Robson cost about $800 per month. It really is a shame how unaffordable Vancouver has become but it's a great city.

How about: nearby "Chattanooga, Tennessee?" The weather is mild, and if you like any sort of "outdoor recreation," from mountain climbing to biking to rowing to long-distance hiking, it's all right here. And within easy reach of many other major cities. Gorgeous scenery. (Yeah, a little humid during the summer. But if you like the color "green" ...) You might get snow in winter but it won't last. "Fall color" is as good as it gets.

Lately, the "Iron Man®" mega-competition has fairly parked here ... they just keep renewing their contract. Because the city can easily accommodate something as insane as "a two-mile swim, a hundred-mile bike ride, and a marathon, all in one day." And in pretty country, to boot. We host other annual biking events where participants blast over "three mountains." (To each his own ...)

In fact, when an outdoor magazine held a national competition for "the best outdoor city in America," Chattanooga(!) won.

As someone who grew up in what was once "the most-polluted city in America" and the inspiration for "the Clean Air Act," I have witnessed its transformation. It is quite genuine. (And you could spend a month visiting all of the truly creative restaurants ...)

P.S.: This post was not paid-for by the Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Philadelphia.

I lived and worked in the Philly area for many years. Being located between Washington, D. C., and New York, N. Y., it's a city with a massive inferiority complex, but it is one of America's great cities. I left the Philly area for very personal reasons that had nothing whatsoever to do with geography.

I'm not saying it's perfect (what place is?), but two of my kids are still there and have no intention of leaving the area.

Just couldn't let this pass.

Dude, the USA is just wild! You've got these giant cities like New York that never sleep, and then you can drive for a few hours and be hiking through mountains or chilling on a tropical beach. The best part? There's all sorts of people here, every culture under the sun. You can grab amazing food from any corner of the world, and there's always something new to learn or see

I don't know but I think the USA has more to offer

In the EU you can jump a train and in less travel than it takes to explore the Eastern 16 states you can explore 20 COUNTRIES! And enjoy the native cuisines (and wines or beers) from the local cooks and brewers! And surrounded by history that goes back over ten times what you see in New York! NY is great, but get real!

I grew up in Washington D.C. I think it has the most to offer of any U.S. city, partially because so much is free thanks to the rest of the U.S. taxpayer base. I did not appreciate Washinton until I left.
