Okay, you two, knock off the pi$$ing contest!
Randy likes Tacoma better that Boise, and that is his opinion.
Boysee Boi likes Boise better than Tacoma, and that is also his opinion.
I think both cities are beautiful in their own distinct ways. However, both cities are worlds apart when it comes to climate. Boise's climate is a semi-arid desert, so of course those "ugly hills" are brown for most of the year. On the other hand, Tacoma and the whole Puget Sound area is a rain forest compared to Boise. In fact, just to the west of Tacoma sits the Olympic Peninsula, one of the rainiest places on the planet. So, naturally, the mountains and hills around Tacoma are much greener.
As for which city is more beautiful, Randy said it best, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. Hometown pride plays a part in that too.
