LA is great when the mountains can be seen behind the skyline but my vote has to go to Seattle

WTF? that's like saying without the skyscrapers in Seattle, it would be no contest. DUHH.

For a city it's size the skyline isn't that bad although it is no where near the top ten for the west.

Yeah L.A. is fake. The entire city is made of legos.

I live in LA, but voted for Seattle. SF is a close second. I like cities with a skyline near a body of water and most of the great skylines of the world are next to a body of water, like a river, a bay, a lake, or an ocean.

Seattle wins hands down. SF, definitely up there, and the GG Bridge definitely adds a nice touch. LA is like 3rd.

I'll join the chorus: Seattle by a good bit, followed by SF. Seattle has one of the best skylines in the country I think, maybe topped by only NYC and Chicago. Pittsburgh can give it a run for its money from certain angles.
