READERS' CHOICE: What's The Most Underrated American City For Travelers?

(Courtesy Budget Travel)

We get to share our travel picks with you all year long. Now it’s your turn.

Over the next several weeks, we’ll be asking for a few of your favorite things, both large (airline, cruise port, national park) and small (which hotel has the best toiletries?). Then we’ll compile your suggestions and let you vote for your top pick in May. Come back often—we’ll be posting a new question almost every day.

Today’s question:

What's the most underrated American city for travelers? Some cities just can't escape their reputations. (How many Pittsburgh eco–tours have you seen advertised recently?) Many of the stereotypes are outdated or flat–out false, so why not give your favorite under–the–radar destination a boost and tell us why we should give it another shot.
