Domestic:
1. Cleveland - It's been my home base for 7 years now and I love every minute of this place.
2. Kalispell, MT - Near where my father grew up, it's one of the bigger towns up there. Medium sized college town with an airport, beautiful scenery, and enough retail to survive.
3. Pacific City, OR - I used a picture of it once in the where in the world photo search. Beautiful sleepy small Oregon coast town. A lot of it still has the WWII era charm.
4. New York (Specifically Queens) - Rougher, gritty, ethnic, authentic. What I imagine NYC used to be like before it was "dysneyfied" by trust fund hipsters.
5. Denver - Mile High, dense, modern, friendly people. My experiences there were great.

International: (and being too poor for much travel overseas this is based on my perceptions)
1. Vancouver BC. A bigger, cooler version of Seattle? SURE!
2. Christchurch, NZ - Sort of the southern edge of the world. If I had money it would be fantastic to visit.
3. Port of Spain, Trinidad - Old school Spanish trading port? Oh hella yea!
4. Edinburgh - Britain's other throne. The stone of destiny if there, what's not to love?
5. Rockall - Sometimes it's nice to get some peace and quiet.

I'm going to exclude Cleveland (my hometown) and Washington (my current residence) from this list as they would obviously be #1 and #2:

1) San Francisco
2) Boston
3) Baltimore
4) Philadelphia
5) New Haven

Haha, very true. Nothing beats a New Haven style white clam. And it's a great city for burgers as well.

When you think about your favorite cities around the world and which ones you would want to move to, how many include professional sports as part of the draw?

This is the first city that I voluntarily moved to that had a major sports franchise(s), a fact which had zero bearing on my decision to move here.

For me it doesn't need to be the highest level professional sports, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't care about sporting entertainment options.  The requirement for me would probably be two professional teams at least at the following level or better; AAA baseball, minor league hockey (AHL), NBA, major NCAAF (or NFL), or MLS.

I'll just speak to cities I've actually visited and/or lived in:

1. San Diego
2. New Orleans (going back Jan 10-14!!!!!)
3. Washington D.C.
4. Boston
5. Cleveland tied with Chicago

Sports have had absolutely nothing to do with any of these choices, though the Wrigley Field experience is second to none.

Zero.  Because I already have my allegiance and i wouldnt move anywhere because of their sports teams.  However, when i had considered moving in the past, i did ask myself if the Cleveland teams would be visiting and how often.  that was of interest to me.

By the way, fun thread....missed this one:

1.) Seattle
2.) San Francisco
3.) Cleveland
4.) Baltimore
5.) Boston

Honorable mention: Chicago, Portland.  Surprised how much run Nashville and Denver have been getting nationally.  Been to both of those places in the past two months and was completely unimpressed and disappointed.

US cities:

New York City, NY
New Orleans, LA
Chicago, IL
Washington, DC
Detroit, MI

I can't think of any cities that would get bumped from this list or added. If I have to choose five, I think these might be the five (I excluded Cincinnati since I've lived here almost my whole life). If I was forced to, I might switch out DC and Pittsburgh. But I'm not sure.

Have lived in a few different cities in my lifetime, and visited many others do to my career; but my heart has always been in Cleveland no matter where I lived. Why? Because the CLE has everything I've ever wanted. A great Metroparks system, zoo, culture, sports, decent shopping, entertainment, neighborhoods, etc... Sports has never been a factor in my decision on where to live. But no matter where I live, the Tribe will always be my favorite sports team.

Favorite cities of the many I have lived in, or visited  -
1. Cleveland
2. Omaha - the Dundee neighbor is great, and this is a city that's very easy to get from place to place.
3. Charlotte - the Elizabeth/Midtown, and Dillworth neighborhoods were favorites of mine. A major drawback to Charlotte was no Metroparks type system like CLE.
4. Chicago - so many great things.
5. Coeur d'Alene ID - one of America's great small cities

Honorable Mention: Dallas, Nashville, Iowa City, Cedar Falls (small college town)

I have never been to Columbus or Cleveland, just driven through.  Really hoping to check it out this year though as I don't have a trillion things on the docket this year!

A bit of an odd question for me.  I'll always be a fan of the Cleveland teams, no matter where I live.... especially with modern technology allowing me to watch them wherever I live.  The professional sports teams were indeed a draw for me to move back to Cleveland.  I'm not sure how big of a draw, but they were to some degree.  But professional sports probably would not be a draw for me moving anywhere else.  The last city I lived in didn't have any major professional sports teams and I didn't miss it.  But I am not so much of a go to the stadium/arena guy.

1) Columbus: I've lived here my whole life. I love the city and it just keeps getting better.
2) Chicago: If had to live in a big city and I had the money, I would move to Chicago. The city is beautiful and has great character.
3) New York: So much history here and so much to do. I've only been to Manhattan but I would love to check out the other boroughs.
4) Cleveland: It kind of brings the East coast city vibe to the Midwest. I have a lot of family from the area so I feel a strong connection to the city and the sports.
5) Pittsburgh: For as much as I hate the sports the city is actually very cool.

A good question--but I'm not sure the denizens of this forum would care.   Me personally--I'd like to have pro baseball unless I was moving to Europe.   I'd still be an Indians fan either way.

A more important question is what would young people living in small town America, who are moving to cities in record numbers, think of having a pro sports franchise.    Would they move to a city for college and become hooked?    I think a fair number do....

1 - Washington D.C - Perfect mix of vibrancy, activity, transit access while not being overbearing like NYC.

2 - Atlanta GA - Perfect weather mix, a lot of stuff to do, but the traffic is AWFUL.

3 - New York City - Loved the vibrancy, activity and transit access but it was too crowded.

4 - Cleveland - Home

5 - Miami - Humidity killed me, made the trip less enjoyable
