I live in Austin, TX. So for me it's pretty much:

Like:

Really pretty city. The river is nice, downtown is cool, west Austin has really beautiful hills, and it's probably the nicest looking city in Texas.

Really good for outdoors stuff like kayaking, hiking, etc.

There's a good music scene for tons of styles (like classical guitar for instance which is cool for me).

There's always events and shit going one.

The girls here are a lot more attractive than other cities I've lived in.

I play pool and there's a lot of tournaments every week and good players over here.


Dislike:

The food. There's some good places to eat here and some people will totally disagree with me, but I'm not too impressed compared to other places. Everyone here is obsessed with breakfast tacos, which are alright, but you know what's better than breakfast tacos? Just regular tacos like fajita or something.

People drive really slow and awful here. I drive on the free way, there's no traffic, speed limit is 65mph and people are going 55.

Really heavy party culture here. Nothing against that, but it's just personally not what I'm into.

Everyone here thinks they're an expert beer connoisseur.

People here can be smug and pretentious as f*ck. It's a relatively progressive city (ex. plastic grocery bags are banned) and there's obviously the whole hipster scene and everything. I'll see shit like people wearing t-shirts that say "Welcome to Austin. Please don't move here." Personality-wise, a lot of people are kind of like this:

Like: Cheap prostitutes
Dislike: The prostitutes can barely speak english
🙈 🙉 🙊
#5
Like: The scenery. Great mountains and outdoorsy stuff around here, which is really nice. Also, it's a university town, so there's lots of people my age and whatnot.

Dislike: Well, it's Provo, Utah. So there's obviously a lot of Mormon's, which isn't a big deal, but so many of them have this bizarre sheltered mindset (we call it the Provo Bubble), because so many of them have never been outside Utah, let alone Provo. So I'm really not a big of that. There's also not much to do here besides outdoorsy stuff.

Like: The food, and sports venues

Dislike: Almost everything else since cities are generally pretty shit

Glasgow, Scotland.

Like:
The people,
"The Glasgow Patter",
The City Centre,
The West End,
The music venues and some of the music scene,
Close to some of the best scenery in the world,
The Duke of Wellington's Cone.


Dislike:
Rangers/Celtic/Partick Thistle
Some really bad areas (like all cities have),
Some of the music scene - too many bands trying to sound like Twin Rabbit/Frightened Atlantic, the traffic.

Brussels:

Like: Many good concerts, a lot of music and record stores in the centre, you can go out nicely from time to time, good public transport system, some nice spots, car free sunday (once a year all cars are banned from teh city and you can skate and bike around without getting killed)

Dislike: dirty as f***, expensive as f***, you get robbed once in a while, whole city breaks down when theres like a millimetre of snow (I'm austrian, I can't understand that ), police isn't really effective, flemish and wallonian people hate each other...

I also live in Brussels.
Like: same stuff, really
Dislike: also pretty much same stuff....but I've never gotten robbed and the flemish and wallonian people (imo) hate each other less and less. The people in general in Brussels kinda suck, though...

Baltimore, MD:

Like: The harbor's nice. Great food. With some exceptions, people are pretty groovy. Sports teams. Cheap houses.
Dislike: There is a shit-ton of organized crime and homeless people. Also do not go anywhere that far from a cop, a hotel, the harbor, or somewhere else well-lit with security at night unless you want to get mugged, murdered, and then mugged again for good measure. Even near those places it's still probably not a good idea. Never go alone, either.

Like: close to mountain, decent music scene. Our uni also has a tight knit physics program.

Dislike: oh boy.. Traffic and horrible drivers. The roads were horribly laid out so it takes ages to drive anywhere. Transit is awful. Too many annoying hockey fans. Country music is apparently a huge thing here.Every one thinks they are a cowboy. Bipolar weather. Can be good sometimes. Not that much to do here besides watch hockey at a bar.

I live in the suburbs. The closest city is like 20 mins away, and consists of about 60,000 people. That's where my girlfriend currently lives, and I spend quite a bit of time there.


Positives:

Relatively safe (minus the stabbings)
Clean (in the areas I spend time in at least)
Decent night life (at least 6-7 bars that I legitimately enjoy, and a few others that are decent)
Good selection of restaurants
Nice market house
lots of trees
easy to walk from place to place
a few cool record shops
decent venue for bands (though they tend to get shitty ones most of the time)

Negatives:

Boring on most non-weekend nights
small
roads are kinda shitty
stabbings happen fairly regularly
not much to do besides go to the bars
bad drivers

I just read this in a Mexican accent. Joo know wass betta than brrrrekfahs tacos? Jus reglarr tacos, like fachitas or somting.



edit:

OT:

There are a lot of awesome Mexican places around. But they're all in shitty parts of town.

The area's really diverse. But they all want to rob you.

We have a pretty large river. But it's gross.

What I like/dislike about Canterbury:

Like:
- It's southern
- It's conservative
- It's the birthplace of Christianity in the UK
- Lots of old Churches and, of course, the Cathedral
- The Marlowe is #dece
- Every so often there's a decent comedian at the Gulbenkian
- It's pretty
- The high street is pretty good
- The nightlife is decent. Not many clubs, but that suits me
- Some #dece bookshops
- Lots of attractive young women
- Cricket in the summer and the St Lawrence Ground has had work done on it
- Loads of pubs

Dislikes:
- Not all that many good restaurants although there are some
- There's not really a music scene, as far as I am aware
- The KFC is miles out of town

I like Chicago. The people are nice, the city is clean and public transportation is fairly decent. We have great colleges, plenty of things to do and I like the mayor (Rahm Emanuel).

Not a fan of the weather. It's either warm or colder than your ex gf's heart.

I like that I live close to things.

I dislike that there's traffic, even when you might not normally expect traffic. I don't even know where the cars come from or where they might be going. It's actually perplexing.

That's not Mexican. That's like Hispanic American high school-aged girl who wears hooped earrings and baggy pants.

Houston

Pros: Incredible diversity of...well pretty much anything!
None of you live here.
Good economic climate (Plenty of work, reasonable housing/cost of living)
Excellent weather 3 months a year.

Cons: Traffic
Nuclear Hot 9 months a year, and NO, it's NOT a 'dry heat'...

Columbus, Ohio

Likes:
1. Downtown, Campus, Short North, and Clintonville are all really nice.
2. Relatively cheap to live here.
3. Small but really tight knit music scene. Very nice people.

Dislikes:
1. For a city this big, it is severely lacking in everything. It is basically just a giant sprawling suburb.
2. No one around here can ****ing drive.
3. Weather. The old adage of "If you don't like the weather in Ohio, wait five minutes" is definitely true.
4. Pretty much every band that goes on tour skips over us, unless they're playing in Nationwide Arena where tickets are going to cost at the very least $75.
5. If you go 15 minutes outside of the city you're in goddamn Alabama.

I live in Soledad, CA.

Likes:
Small town.
Big grocery store that sells the stuff at a cheap price.
Inexpensive living here for housing and rent.
Good mexican food restaurants.
Weather. it only gets hot here about a month for summer, its fresh all year round.

Dislikes:
A lot of people who cant drive properly. I mean the kind of people who cut you off constantly, tailgate, drive slow, etc.
You need to speak spanish or be bilingual with spanish only. I'm mexican and I cant speak proper spanish but I understand it.
Decent shops are far away and to get a good job you need to commute about 30, 40 or 50 miles away to get a good paying job.
Not a lot of diverse restaurants, I wish we had a good Italian place.
No music scene unless you travel far away.


I might have more likes and dislikes but I cant remember.
