I've only been to two cities on the list: San Francisco and Hobart.
San Francisco is one of the best cities on Earth (except their sports teams).
I love going into "the city". We live a little over an hour away. We've been there for concerts, sporting events, conventions, and just general goofing around. It is a fantastic place. It's one of those cities that when you're there, you know you're there
(if that makes sense).
As for Hobart, I spent 4 days there during my year abroad in Australia. That was many, many years ago. We stayed at the Wrest Point Casino. I won big, drank big, and had a wonderful time.
