    Interesting that you’re almost halfway between Austin and Atlanta. Honolulu, I don’t get.

  2. Steven L. Says:

    Hmm. Some ambiguous questions: “Need a job?” Um. Now? Or if I had to move? Or would obtaining a good job be important to me? I’m assuming none of the above — just are you looking right now.

    80% Austin
    75% Denver
    70% Seattle
    60% Honolulu
    60% Miami

    What’s up with this? Did the Austin Chamber of Commerce create this thing? Every region I tried listed Austin as #1. South…Austin, west…Austin, midwest…Austin, even the northeast…Austin. Is it that good in Austin?

  4. Steven Taylor Says:

    Austin is one of the best cities in the US, at least in my opinion.

  5. Signifying Nothing Says:

    Quiz’d again
    Yeah, this is pretty much right, although the high ranking of Philly was a bit of a surprise, since Scott and I thought it was kind of a cesspool when we visited for APSA in 2003: American Cities That Best…

  6. Bamacrat Says:

    Somehow I got Atlanta…

  7. Gary and the Samoyeds Says:

    Pretty worthless.

    The questions don’t cover many important areas (live sports fan? need flights everywhere? cost of living (besides taxes)? average pay?)

    Las Vegas came as #1. OK, I can probably accept that.

    Seattle came as #2. No way. I’ve been there.

    Honolulu was #3. Yes, it would be nice, but there’s no way I can afford it.

    The ever-present Austin was #4. Never been there, so no idea.

    Then came … Atlanta? All right, the only parts I’ve seen were from I-75 at 55 MPH, but I didn’t care for it. Besides, I picked “West” and Atlanta ain’t west.

  8. Jan Says:

    I do think there are some flaws in their system. We had 4 out of five cities in common, but I too picked west and ended up with Atlanta as #2?!?

    My results:
    60% Austin
    55% Atlanta
    55% Denver
    55% Las Vegas
    50% Chicago

    I feel certain they had a VERY small list of possible cities.
