Pick 1 main trait/characteristic/ect of a city. If someone has never been to this city, and was questioning the main draw to which it has...what would it be?

Here are a few I came up with

St louis- the arch
Minneapolis - the mall of america
milwaukee- the beer
chicago- the skyscrapers

then a city i am so confused on:
atlanta?

remember only 1* trait...i know some have several...but I want the BEST answer!

I do hope you and the rest of the country realizes that that Mall of America actually isn't in Minneapolis, but the southern suburb of Bloomington.

Here's what really defines Minneapolis:

-Lakes (24 of them in a city that's only 54 square miles in size)
-The Skyway System
-St. Anthony Falls and the flour milling industry that destroyed it
-Extreme weather (hot, humid summers and cold, siberia-like winters, but only for two weeks out of the year)

Atlanta - assertiveness
charleston - gentility
las vegas - uninhibited
minneapolis - pristene

yeah I know...but I'm not going to tell someone that has never been to MSP that the mall is in bloomington...It is easier to recognize Minneapolis. But I like your "lakes" answer...that is a good one.

You are really stuck on bad-mouthing Atlanta aren't you? I've seen your other posts floating around and you always have some bullshit to publish or something negative to say.

Atlanta landmarks:

The Fox Theater
MLK Jr. National Historic Site (birthplace and resting place)
Stone Mountain
Centennial Olympic Park with all of its statues and monuments
The Cyclorama
Zoo Atlanta - The Pandas
The Varsity
Underground Atlanta
Margaret Mitchell House
The Wren's Nest
Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel
Buckhead
Hartsfield

etc, etc, etc...why don't you read up about Atlanta before you make more false statements about the city? Especially claiming you live in Atlanta, it would be a good start to get out of whatever hole you live in and look around. You obviously haven't seen any of it...

New York - subway trash
Philadelphia - half the stuff invented by Ben Franklin
Detroit - cars and urban decay
Atlanta - the airport
Charlotte - a cleaner version of Atlanta
Las Vegas - the show CSI
Miami - a really bad CSI spinoff
Houston - we have a problem
Denver - it has a good view of the pretty half of Colorado
Los Angeles - Earthquakes
Honolulu - Volcanoes
Kansas City - Tornadoes
New Orleans - Hurricanes

I'm just joking of course, there are good things too.

The whole point was to determine what off the top of their head would people think of. I can guarantee you that at least 75-80 percent of America has heard of almost nothing on that list. You obviously haven't read the question at all. If it requires you to look it up, than it's not a defining trait. Stop complaining.
