Best United States Capitol Cities


The Top Ten

1 Washington, DC

By the way it's spelt Capital not Capitol, that one means a government building like Capitol Building.

I'm dyslexic sorry! - westofohio

2 Oklahoma City, OK

But what about the monster EF5 tornadoes?

OKC has come up light years since 1990. The Bricktown area (entertainment district) is awesome.

3 Honolulu, HI Honolulu, HI

Tropical...shall I say more?

I really don't know. Are you overrated? It's only decent to visit but never to live. I would push this further down.

4 Nashville, TN

Very organized, clean and beautiful compared to Memphis.

Memphis is trashy, meanwhile Nashville is cleaner, tastier, and louder!

Thais placer is ROCKING! YouTube hace todo love it! It is homepage of music. Of you're planning yo vacaciones it's a crear place. (Oh and it is nicknamed Music City.)

5 Austin, TX

One of the biggest live music scenes in America and some of the friendliest people you'll ever meet. Also as green as San Francisco and Portland. Austin is truly a weird experience, considering the liberal style in the middle of Texas. Trust me, Austin isn't just the best city in the South, nor just the best capitol, but one of the best cities in America.

I seriously voted Austin because I'm from Texas...and um, I don't need a second reason. Long live Texas!

It's the capital of Texas! Therefor it is bigger and better! - RogueCaptain24

10 Atlanta, GA

The Contenders

11 Des Moines, IA

Beautiful and clean!

12 Madison, WI

What a beautiful and liberal city

13 Columbus, OH

I moved here from Atlanta and I have made more friends here in 2 years than I have made in Atlanta in 5. Columbus is an awesome place. A lot of beautiful areas, even in the inner city. The college vibe here is amazing, especially during an Ohio State game. Great shopping at Easton, Polaris, and Tuttle Crossing. Amazing schools and college oriented. Its also half way between Kings Island and Cedar Point Amusement Parks. I love Columbus.

I was born here and lived there for about 13 years so I know this city is great in a lot of ways - Ajkloth

14 Sacramento, CA

Most beautiful capital in the USA located along the Sacramento River. There are trees from every country surrounding the capital. The restaurants are wonderful. Every year Sacramento celebrates food to fork, jazz jubilee, etc. and they are now building what will be a state of the art basketball arena downtown. The community is great!

Sacramento is located in a wonderfully geographical place. It is located an hour and a half from the most beautiful scenery of breathtaking Lake Tahoe and the Pacific Ocean. Sacramento has great restaurants, culture, and great weather.

Sacramento is very nice place to go, if you see the capitol it will kind of remind you of the U.S capitol in Washington DC. I am from Chicago and Chicago is very beautiful but my family is from Sacramento besides parents, I was born in Sacramento, CA and I got a tour of it yesterday and it was beautiful, Downtown is beautiful and the arena is cool. Sacramento is an amazing memory I will never forget and I want more people to know about Sacramento and Chicago.

As Sacramento is getting larger it midtown continues to have that old town feel. It is the most diversity cities I've been to that people get along. Within 2 1/2 hours in every direction are some of the most beautiful cities, oceans,mountains as well as Ski resorts.
The city itself has more tress and greenery. However, with the climate changes the winters are warmer and summers get hotter ever year with few summer day climb to as high 107 degrees. However the spring and fall season are there most desirable.
I've lived in Sacramento most my life and have all my family within 5 miles.

15 Raleigh, NC

This should be higher

It's a fine Capital city located next to reaserch triangle park and within 30 mi of three top teir universitys (NCstate,UNC,Duke) it has a high level of education with a median salary of 70,000 it has plenty of great jobs.
