3 Denver

Not much to say but, a beautiful city with a beautiful skyline.

The skyline itself is nice enough but the mountains make it special. It deserves to be in the top ten.

The mountains are what makes this skyline great.

SEATTLE IS NUMBER ONE GO SEATTLE SEAHAWKS. GO TO THE SPACE NEEDLE THE VIEW IS BREATHTAKING

4 Chicago Chicago ...read more.

Chicago is #5 because yes they have a beautiful skyline but if you take the Willis Tower away, its not very eye opening.

It's hard to drive without gazing at this magnificent skyline

I'm truly in love with the Chicago Skyline!

Chicago's is # 1 without question. The view from the lake is the best in the country. It has Willis, Aon, Trump Tower, and John Hancock which are in the top ten in the US.

5 Seattle Seattle Seattle is a seaport city on the west coast of the United States. It is the seat of King County, Washington.

Seattle has won the #1 spot because of its great display of the iconic Space Needle and many more beautiful buildings to go with it.

I love seattle born and raised the city is the best would not live anywhere else. Go Seahawks

Seattle is number 1

Seattle is the most scenic city in the states by far. With views of the Okympics and Cascade Mountain ranges, along with the Puget Sound and the needle it is simply the best.

6 Portland Portland Portland is the largest city in the U.S. state of Oregon and the seat of Multnomah County. It is a major port in the Willamette Valley region of the Pacific Northwest, at the confluence of the Willamette and Columbia Rivers.

Seattle is number one

Philadelphia is the economic and cultural anchor ...read more.

With the comcast innovation and technology center nearing completion, and soon the 87-story transit terminal tower (2901 Arch Street) and the other skyscrapers of the Schuylkill Yards project, Philadelphia has one of the most perfect skylines in the US, with more improvements to come

Philadelphia has a tall and figured skyline. I live its location and density even-ness.

Philadelphia hands down

How could you not vote in a city with an architectural masterpiece such as the Gateway Arch onto the list?

Although the buildings don't have much to offer, the Arch makes it very unique

12 Los Angeles

The mountains in the backdrop are amazing but the buildings are uninteresting and not aesthetically pleasing.

I like the mountain backdrop the best.

Seattle no one go seattle seahawks

Los Angeles has a good skykine that becomes amazing with the addition of mountians in the backdrop.

13 Fort Wayne

Seattle is number one go seattle seahawks. GO to the space needle the view is breathtaking

14 Dallas

Dallas' growing skyline is only getting better with the addition of the Museum Tower and future planned projects. It will be complemented in the future by a much better Trinity River area.

Dallas is way better than Philadelphia!

Dallas Skyline is probably one of the nicest things you'll ever witness when visiting the area!

SEATTLE IS NUMBER ONE GO SEATTLE SEAHAWKS

15 Houston

Houston looks stunning if you drive on I-45 North or I-10 West.

SEATTLE IS NUMBER ONE GO SEATTLE SEAHAWKS. GO TO THE SPACE NEEDLE THE VIEW IS BREATHTAKING

I honestly think that this should be in the top 5. I mean with Lake Houston, the unique architecture, and the amount of skyscrapers, how could this city not make the list?

Downtown Houston is very impresive skyline. there are 5 more skylines in houston:
Uptown, larger than most U.S. cities skylines
Texas Medical Center, largest medical center in the world (impresive)
Westchase
Energy Corridor
Midtown

16 Indianapolis
17 Minneapolis

Gorgeously modern, extremely well-balanced skyline.

Beautiful modern skyline and many things to do downtown.

Stunning modern looking skyline - almost all glass and each building is unique.

Gorgeous city! Skyline is an amazing sight to see.

18 Baltimore

SEATTLE IS NUMBER ONE

19 Miami

Miami has a fast growning skyline with a great beach location. Miami could be atop the list very soon.

I Believe that New York and Chicago are the Top dogs, but Miami is growing immensely and by 2020, we might have Miami as Number 2! In addition, New York will always be #1 and I'm thrilled for that because NY deserves it!
