Most of the major cities that everyone has been saying are great with one exception. I'd take a pass on Miami.. I've never found it extremely enjoyable or American. A good portion of the people are Caribbean island immigrants or homeless people.

Can't speak on western cities but for the East I'd do New Orleans, DC, NY, Boston, and a Charlotte to Ashville Trip for NC (little over 2hr drive).

that is exactly why I said Miami.

How could anyone forget about Hawaii? Never been there but heard it's incredible. That would be my pick.


I lived in Hawaii for...way too long.  Not worth the expense.  I'm sure it's nice enough for vacationing, but there's not much there you can't get better in Florida.

San Francisco

San Diego

And for LA area as a traveller I'd suggest Santa Monica/West LA/LA Live/Manhattan Beach.

LOL Philly, if you want to get hounded for a dolla every 15 feet that's the best place to visit. Bum city.

The sammich's aren't worth the hassle.

There's a lot of good history in Philly, including an awesome panther victory!

If you are going to California first, you should consider making your way up from SD to San Fran and then San Fran to the east by train. There's not a better way to see the country than by riding the rails. The interstates are dreadfully boring.

I've lived all over the US and would recommend seeing landmarks rather than cities myself (Rockies, Grand Canyon, the gulf) but if I had to pick 5 cities I think you should visit in order it'd be:

NYC - doesn't get any bigger or fascinating city-wise
Los Angeles/Hollywood - same as NYC but with a western culture
Vegas - anything can happen here
Miami - lots to do all around the city and Florida
Seattle - my personal favorite, I love the scenery and progressive feeling of the city culture

Also keep in mind it really matter what you want to see in a city. I picked cities you could really find anything in.

Fayetteveille, NC is great if you have anything to pawn or want to speak with girls from broken homes who are " paying their way through medical school"...that can shake it.

I was born in Missoula (beautiful), lived in NYC (cool to visit, terrible to live), lived in Charlotte (obviously panthers), lived in Miami (awesome, but all dependent on your age if you'll enjoy a visit there), lived in Chicago (terrible terrible terrible place don't ever go there), lived in PA so I was close to Baltimore, DC, philly, and Pittsburgh (none are mind blowing, so unless you're into some DC landmarks it's all worth skipping), now currently live in Austin Texas and it is by FAR the coolest place with the most awesome stuff to do you'll ever see or visit in the US.
