Sudbury, Ontario

Likes:
-perfect city size. Has areas where you can get alot of shopping done, but also areas where it feels very quaint (sp?) and intimate.
- enough to do so that you can't get bored
- cops don't care a whole lot about the amount of parties or how loud they get
- friendly people
- only four hours away from TO
- not much crime, at least not where I live

Dislikes:
- four hours away from TO and the closest major sports teams
- the roads here are the worst in Ontario, possibly even in Canada
- not a whole heck of alot of job opportunities
- the whole city seems very spread out...have to drive at least 20 minutes for the best golf course and 30 for the best shopping areas

Yeah, I really don't find Nashville to be that cold in the winter TBH. Night life just really depends on where you are. There's also lots of good food and shopping places. I don't notice the rednecks as much, but maybe I'm immune since I've lived here most of my life. There are some really pitiful drivers here though.

Cincinnati, OH:

Likes:
-Decent size city
-Plenty to do
-Not far from OSU and OU for partying plus UC is no slouch.
-Awesome Zoo/Museums
-Literally five minutes away from major sporting events(Reds, Bengals, Cyclones)
-Pretty good sports tradition at almost every level except the NFL.
-People are generally pretty down to earth and nice.

Dislikes:
-Downtown is pretty lame though the new Banks project should be pretty sweet.
-Borders Kentucky
-Weather and by that I mean we experience a huge difference with the changing of the seasons. Summers are very hot and humid while the winters can get pretty darn cold. Almost never really comfortable.
-People are pretty ignorant around here. Especially when it comes to sports.
-Cops are big time assholes especially within the city limits. Probably has something to do with the fact that most of them are German(Gestapo?). Haha jk, but they are absolute dicks.
