Well if I were to live somewhere else in the country, it would be Seattle. All around beautiful area.
I went on vacation to that area last summer, and it was a blast. Seattle itself doesn't have a whole lot to do (tour Boeing, tour Microsoft, Space Needle, Public Market), so I'd recommend you go take the 2-3 hour drive up to Vancouver as well. Very luxurious area and there's plenty to do in a big city like that.
In the beginning of August, I'm going on vacation to New England for 2 weeks and will be staying in NYC for a few days, so if you aren't going until after then, I can check back and let you know my thoughts. I personally love the extreme rush of the big cities, so I know it will be great. Expensive though. The hotels I booked downtown were over $400 per night.
