Why? Indy, for me, as you all know. That's why it's up there. What about you?

California. I hate cold weather, relatives live in the Bay Area.

Los Angeles. After that, maybe Miami.

I'd rather not be BigLaw, but I absolutely want to stay in Texas.

Failing Texas, I love DC and would like to move back there.

Philadelphia!!!  No love for the city of Brotherly Love?  Good law firms, great market for lawyers, lower cost of living than DC or NY, and fantastic restaurants.  Beautiful suburbs with great schools and golf courses (The two most important factors).

All they need to do is get rid of the city wage tax and it'd be #1.

Boston--Between living here doing my master's degree last year and now living here and working it has gotten under my skin.  Despite the fact that it is so cold my eyes teared and then burned this morning on the way to the T, i love it!  Great places to live, good public transportation, great restaurants and museums, good schools, lots of green space.  I could go on and on, and coming from a midwest girl, this much love for a city is rare.
