Here's the challenge...
Name cities in the US. I'll try to visit every one mentioned in 2006.
Only caveat - *you* have to have been there. (otherwise I'll get every town and city in the Dakotas)
If I get to a city, I'll write a trip report.
Yes, I'm that bored right now. :)
I will also definitely regret this.

Las Angelas, California (Actually on second thought don't go there, I hated that place)
San Francisco, California

I decided to be nice. I've only listed a handful of places I consider exceptional places to visit, or near exceptional places.
Jacob Lake, Arizona
Sealy Lake, Montana
West Yellowstone, Montana
New York, New York
Los Angeles, California
Las Vegas, Nevada
New Orleans, Lousiana
That will be enough to keep you busy a few months.

Damn you have been to lot of places.

I always thought Biloxi, Mississippi was kind of a cool place. You have casinos and still the people know you when you come back. Kind of a smalltown Vegas.
I don't know about how it is doing now... since recent events.
Grass Valley, Calif.
Ok Grass Valley and Castroville aren't cities.
Here's a few places I've been with pleasant memories:
Fort Collins, CO
New York, NY
Santa Fe, NM
Cocoa Beach, FL
San Diego, CA
Glenwood Springs, CO

IMesh, if your "Damn you have been to lot of places" was directed to me, you are very right. I worked for 15 years for a company that does automated warehousing. I've been to the best warehouses in the world, mostly in the US, but also Taiwan and a couple in Europe.
I'm a Delta Million Miler. I've got a collection of ticket stubs that you wouldn't believe. And yes, I was being very, very nice to Philo.

Some of my favorite US cities that I've visited:
San Francisco, CA
Pittsburgh, PA (but only if you drive in from the South)
Seattle (but you kind of live there yeah?)

+1 San Diego, for the beautiful architecture downtown (and the boardwalk is quite agreeable).
But since you used to be in the navy, I suppose you've been there before.
Bird in hand,

New York, NY
anon in Iceland

Bettendorf, IA (my hometown).

I'll be nice too - only cities that are worth visiting for one reason or another.
Asheville, NC (lots of artsy stuff)
Dayton, OH (USAF museum)
Charleston, SC (Just a great city to visit)
Denver, CO (nice downtown area)
The twin cities, MN (Mall of America)
Farmington, NM (the Shiprock, Anasazi & Aztek sites)
and an easy one for you:
Washington, DC (Smithsonian Institution)

I was going to throw in West Des Moines, but Ryan already got one of the quad-cities, so you're probably covered as far as Iowa is concerned.

Yuba City, CA
And visit Antonio's Quick Lunch.
It's the best Taqueria on earth.
And let John H and I know you're coming, we'll show you around. (There is so much to see.)
Grass Valley, CA is in our neighborhood, and depending a little on how you got there, you probably came right through. Do you make this journey often?
