    I live in Denver (love it!) and my territory is the four corner states plus Wyoming. Our home office is in LA and we have major operations near BUR, SAN, MCI and OKC.

    Here's my list of likes:

    ABQ all the time - love the green chile
    SLC all the time -- it's beautiful
    PHX in the winter. Need to parlay that into a family trip to the Grand Canyon.
    LAX/BUR -- hate the traffic, love the vibe
    SAN -- wife grew up in La Jolla
    AUS -- it's just groovy

    My list of would rather nots:

    PHX in the summer
    OKC
    MCI, except every once in a while for the barbeque
    DFW -- the metropolis is paved

    I'm in OKC now, because I have to. Where to you go because you have to?

    Have tos: DCA mostly, but have done have to trips to BUF, RAP, ADQ, CHS, PWM, DLH, IND, JAN, DFW (super-uck), IAH, MIA

    I don't dislike all of those above. I really liked work travel to ADQ, ORD, BOS, TPA, LHR, BRU, FRA, SIN, BKK and SFO

    Strictly work, never another reason:
    CLT
    ORD (and any other airport in the US that is not on one of the coasts, for that matter)
    LHR
    LOS (oh, well, all of West Africa)

    I will go for personal business or pleasure:
    almost anywhere else.

    I go to SLC often for work, too, and I absolutely love it. It's beautiful there, and they actually have seasons, unlike here in SAT!

    My work takes me around the Midwest quite a bit, and there are quite a few places I don't relish the thought of returning to, mostly:

    DTW, CLE, IND, OMA, DSM and CVG. As an AA flyer, I also find myself in DFW, which is has zero appeal to me as a destination. ;)

    Heading off to CLE (unfortunately) for the 3rd time in 6 months on Monday.

    These days, the "Places I go because I HAVE to": Anaheim. SJC. LAX area. Used to include ELP, McAllen, Ft. Worth, DTW, STL, and BUF.

    Love: a LOT of places. Really. Make an adventure out of it.

    I hate Vegas, but being in the Exhibit industry, I end up going there way more often than I would like. As a matter of fat I am there right now.

    Fortunately, we are staying at the Four Seasons on a smoking rate provided by one of our vendors. The tranquility of this hotel takes the crazy egde off Vegas.

    Our room overlooks the airport, which I love. It is so fun to watch airplanes. :)

    As a northerner, I'm finding it to warm heading to MCO these days.
    The only thing I don't really like about DTW is when there I find myself downtown and food options (for where I am) become limited.

    DFW, ABQ, ATL, CVG, BNA, SEA, OSL, RUH, MTY, GIG, YYZ, YUL, DEN, EWR just to name a few.

    And I can find things I like about them all including EWR (since I grew up in NJ of course :) )

    I love to travel and be on the road whether for business or pleasure, there's really no place that I don't like to go.
