Seattle is the 3rd Coolest City in America According to Forbes' Harris Poll

A few days ago Seattle woke up to find Men's Health ranking the town lower than other parts of the country, like Boise, Indianapolis, Columbus, Cincinnati and Salt Lake City, in terms of the degree to which citizens of Seattle partake in adult pro-creative activities, using such scientific criteria as condom sales and birth rates to determine their rankings.

Meanwhile, Forbes Magazine hired the Harris market research company to conduct a poll of Americans across the country to find out which of the nation's 40 largest metro areas the people consider "The Coolest."

New York City came in #1, followed by Las Vegas, with Seattle #3.

The entire list of Top Ten Cool Towns....
  • New York City
  • Las Vegas
  • Seattle
  • Chicago
  • San Francisco
  • Orlando
  • San Diego
  • Los Angeles
  • Miami
  • Washington, D.C.

  • Seattle is a cool town, one of my favorites. But, cooler than Los Angeles? Hollywood is in Los Angeles. Hollywood is pretty cool. It is easier to escape Seattle to something cool, like mountains, than it is in LA. Both have saltwater, but LA's saltwater has big warm surfable waves. Seattle is way more easy to get around in than Los Angeles, its downtown more concentrated, with the sports stadiums downtown. Both town's traffic is terrible, with LA's being a bit worse.

    I remember way back when San Francisco was a cooler town than Seattle. I guess those days are behind us.
