Keep an eye on Boston. It already has the mass, has a ton of density-adding construction going on, and some very large new projects in the extreme near-future pipeline.

Yes, I always say that those cities are 2 peas from the same pod. Boston may be the stuffier one, but it's really not by much. In recent polls (unsure where these polls originate or how they are scored) it was rated both the drunkest and sluttiest city in the United States. We have also decriminalized marijuana possession in Massachusetts so you can smell it all over the city (especially in the common) and I think full legalization has a good shot at passing in the 2016 elections.

Where Boston does NOT compare to Montreal is we only have 1-2 remaining strip clubs in the entire city, while Montreal seems to have 1-2 strips clubs per block!

I recommend to anybody thinking of visiting one of these cities to try to knock out both in the same trip. They're both beyond fantastic, and interesting to compare/contrast with one another. Bring your walking shoes!!!

Charlotte is tall and striking, but severely lacks the midrise and lowrise density of a true urban area. Outside of its 2 main streets, it feels more like an overgrown office park than a real city. A handful of skyscrapers, surrounded by parking lots, surrounded by nothing....

I will give it some credit because I know that it is a young city slowly filling in and improving, but coming from the north I found southern cities' lack of density and cohesiveness as somewhat of a shock. Charlotte seemed to be the biggest offender in that department, at least in my own personal travels.
