Best United States Capital Cities

The Top Ten
1 Washington, DC

The King of the Capitals

2 Oklahoma City, OK

I love it! There is so much to do! But I gotta say, I'm actually pretty surprised it's this high, just because a lot of tourists don't come here often. But there should be a lot of tourists!

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

3 Honolulu, HI Honolulu is the capital and largest city of the U.S. state of Hawaiʻi. It is an unincorporated part of and the county seat of the City and County of Honolulu along the southeast coast of the island of Oʻahu.

Tropical...shall I say more?

It is also the fifth most populous city in the United States, and the most populous American state capital, and the only state capital with a population of more than one million residents.Phoenix is the anchor of the Phoenix more.

Capital of the most free state in the entire nation.

5 Nashville, TN

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

Very organized, clean and beautiful compared to Memphis.

6 Denver, CO Denver, officially the City and County of Denver, is the capital and most populous municipality of the U.S. state of Colorado.

Denver that is so cool

11 Raleigh, NC

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. And altough those who represent the districts of NC on capital hill sometimes make national news for contravertial descion politically most people feel their voice is heard and respected

Best southern town

12 Sacramento, CA

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.

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.

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.

13 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!

I live here and it is great!

14 Madison, WI

I just toured the Wisconsin capital in Madison. Definitely the most beautiful capital I have been been in.

15 Baton Rouge, LA
16 Richmond, VA
17 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.

Light years from being a "Cow Town". Great downtown; great college atmosphere; employment opportunities galore; plentiful upscale shopping; and of course, O-H!

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

18 Augusta, ME
19 Montpelier, VT
20 Lincoln, NE
21 Salem, OR
22 Boston, MA

Boston is one of the oldest city in U.S. A with nice museums, MiT, Boston college and Harvard and the home of the Red sox, Celtics and Bruins
