Your Favorite City Skyline

Certainly, there are a lot of really pretty cities out there. I’m partial to Chicago’s skyline… possibly because it’s been there all my life. The buildings just loom at the horizon for so many miles. The Sears Tower juts up strongly, with the surrounding buildings sprouting up around it. And then, you hit Lake Michigan, and outside of one or two buildings, you’re looking back at all of it. Just gorgeous.

I also like the skylines of Minneapolis-St. Paul and Denver, but not nearly as much. The big question is, what cities do it for you? What skylines are your favorite? -pm

Mine would have to be:

1) Chicago
2) Dallas
3) Seattle
4) NYC

Chicago is AMAZING for a massive one. Dallas is AMAZING if you want a smaller but still huge one. Walking through downtown Dallas is amazing at night. Very beautiful

I Travel all the time and my favorites are Chicago, Dallas and Hong Kong.
Dallas is the one that always surpises people. Most people think of Texas as a flat wasteland, but Dallas is a stunning city, especially at night.

Wow. This is funny. I posted on this 7 years ago. I still like Seattle’s. Haha
