London
Beijing
St Louis
Los Angeles
Calgary
Vancouver
Salt lake City

And I was in Beijing and salt lake for the olympics. I wish I could go to London this summer but there's no way I could afford it right now.

It's amazing how NYC hasn't hosted the Olympics yet and Atlanta has, that's kinda absurd.

I have been to all except Athens and Seoul. Not too bad; however as a million + miler on Delta, I have spent a few hours on a plane.

With the Olympics in the headlines again, I thought I'd revive this thread to get some more votes and discussion in. The data from the poll will be really interesting to parse (ie. # of visits to Asian cities vs European cities among a largely North American populace, etc). Thanks to the nearly 200 who have voted.
