Best United States Capital Cities

The Top Ten
1 Washington, DC
2 Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

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, Hawaii 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.

It's warm and affordable, not that much to do, but if you like swimming pools, golf, Mexican food, then why not.

Capital of the most free state in the entire nation.

5 Nashville, Tennessee

It's better than trashy Memphis and more exciting then Knoxville. It has grown a lot, a lot of bars, hot chicken, and things to do. Good luck affording it

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

Very organized, clean and beautiful compared to Memphis.

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

It's a hip city, really beautiful, really chill, Mountains, bars, good food, chill vibes

7 Albany, New York

It's kind of boring and cold, but I'm sure it's more affordable then a lot of New York, has beautiful outdoors and somewhat growing economy.

8 Indianapolis, Indiana Indianapolis, the capital of Indiana, is known for hosting the Indianapolis 500, a famous car race. The city's White River State Park offers green spaces and cultural attractions like the Indianapolis Zoo and the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art.

11 Raleigh, North Carolina

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

Growing city, Still affordable...I think...Good food, nice people, nice weather, a lot of jobs

12 Sacramento, California

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.

13 Austin, Texas

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!

14 Madison, Wisconsin

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

15 Baton Rouge, Louisiana
16 Columbus, Ohio

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!

19 Montpelier, Vermont
20 Lincoln, Nebraska
21 Salem, Oregon
