You got me beat:

Boston, MA

Washington D.C.

It would help if my parents didn't have such a hatred of large cities though. Then maybe I would've gotten a chance to actually visit some cities, instead of just passing through them as fast as possible.

Yep. D.C.'s was nice & clean, although you had to pay the price for it. An expensive ride, but well worth it...sure beats sitting in traffic!
