    USA Today article lists them

    I have been to/spent time in:
    Colorado Springs, CO - Pikes Peak, Air Academy Chapel
    Paducah, KY. another Ohio River Town - Levee Wall Murals are worth seeing

    Which ones have been to or spent time in?

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    I have been to:

    Alexandria, Va. – stayed there when I visited DC years ago. Very nice.

    Colorado Springs, Colo. – I also visited the Air Force Academy when I was in town.

    Eureka, Calif. – Passed through on a west coast trip a couple summers ago. The redwoods nearby are awesome.

    Saint Paul, Minn. – Despite being the capital city it's usually overshadowed by bustling Minneapolis, but I think it's equally great.

    I've been through Alexandria, VA and St. Paul, MN, but actually spent more quality time in their counterparts, Arlington/Washington and Minneapolis. I do remember being astonished by St. Paul's size and skyline. I always thought it was the lesser of the Twin Cities, but it really holds its own. When I passed through Alexandria, I don't remember much since it was at night and I was in a bronchopneumonia-induced fog.

    I have a friend who recently moved to Colorado Springs, so I hope to make it out there to go visit him in the near future.

    I've been to Eureka (it smells bad - pulp mill out on Samoa) and Sonoma.
