Do Tell: What is your favorite city?


What is your favorite city in the world? For me, it’s definitely a toss-up between London and Barcelona, two cities that are so strikingly different, but have so much to offer. Paris definitely round out my top 3. Stateside, I love San Francisco. It’s beautiful, romantic and home to great restaurants. Which city is your favorite?

  1. While I enjoy time spent in the larger cities around the globe, my most favorite are definitely on the smaller scale. My favorite city in the US has to be Charleston, SC. Abroad I’d have to say Edinburgh with Milan coming in a close second.

  2. I haven’t been to a lot of places but so far, I am in love with San Francisco, too! It’s such a beautiful city, with lots of wonderful restaurants and lovely views.

  3. U.S.: San Francisco (and now I am living here; it is amazing! I hear the fog horns blow in the distance one day, and have bright sunshine the next!)

    International: Buenos Aires; the Paris of S. America… with more flavor, less pretentiousness, better food, and so. much. fun. ah, I love it there! love it!

  4. Stateside: New Orleans, great food, outstanding architecture, fantastic art, divine music…and the most laid back place in America.

    Europe: Florence, Italy (anywhere in Italy really)

    Asia: Shanghai

    Latin America: Buenos Aires

    Caribbean: Havana, Cuba

    Diverse enough? LOL

  5. My top two cities have to be Paris & St. Petersburg (Russia), with Rome, Buenos Aires and Kyoto rounding out the top five.

  6. As far as where I’ve been, I’d say the Laguna Beach area. I went on vacation there in December a couple years back and it was so peaceful and serene!! I’ve dreamed and dreamed about going back and spending more time relaxing and visiting all the great restaurants and shops!

  7. What a beautiful photo! I’m partial to Lucerne, Switzerland because it’s so clean and beautiful. Plus, I had quite a night to remember there right after high school graduation singing Grease karaoke with my best friends and some very friendly locals! In the US, NYC because, well, what’s not to love? Chapel Hill, NC could be my all-time favorite, though, because it’s where I went to college and met my husband. Wonderful, wonderful memories!!

  8. This is a tough one but it was fun to see everyone’s answers so far. Munich, Germany and Portland, OR are at the top of the list because they are home to me now, but San Francisco and London are also special because they used to be home and are both truly amazing. As for somewhere I have visited: Cape Town, S. Africa is quite stunning! So many beautiful places!!!

  9. Definitely my home town Salzburg! Gorgeous architecture and most picturesque surrounding. Since I can only visit now I appreciate its beauty even more now. Florence would be second and Miland third.
