    My fave would probably be Falkreath, even though I don't go there very often anymore.

    Are you kidding? Markarth is the most beautiful Muiri city in Skyrim!

    You married Muiri too, eh? She used to be attractive, but then they released that update where she got war paint.

    I agree it is a nice city, but I prefer Falkreath, because I like the kind of creepy isolated feeling I get there.

    When it comes to the City itself Markarth is a clear winner, but foor the entire hold I vote Riften.

    I don't know if it exists yet but I think we should have a Skyrim's next top wife show.

    I have got to say Dawnstar. Even though I visit maybe... never. 

    I visit all the others enough to get sick of them :P

    Heimskr can be the Host and the judges would be Mikael and Jarl Sidgeir.

    I'm tied between Markarth and Riften.

    Markarth,like many said,is just structurally beautiful.

    Riften is,IMO, a great and lively city.Everyone is walking around talking to each other and I feel I have everything I need right there.Plus,your children like Brynjolf.

    My favorite hold has to be the Reach, but my favorite town must be Whitrun.

    Ha. With no doubt, Raven Rock. Why?

    - It's a Dunmer city. (Yes, I know, this simple fact is enough, but...)

    - It's a Redoran city, my second favorite House in Morrowind.

    - You actually help, indirectly, in the development of that city, which is awesome... And one of the few things that I liked in Dragonborn. (The other ones: You become an associate with the Telvanni - Neloth. I mean... Neloth; Rieklings and Hermaeus Mora¹.)

    - Back to the point... In Raven Rock, we have Captain Veleth, (Really, is the only Captain that actually IS a Captain in the game)

    - We have some good old politics, and some Morag Tong.

    Now, in Skyrim:

    Riften: Lady Maven, corruption... Real life.

    Whiterun City: Rohan, LotR. And Balgruuf.

    Solitude: POLITICS.

    Morthal: We have the best Jarl there. Lady Idgrod. I like her so much. And there's something really dark about that city that attracts me...

    I think I like them all... Oh, well.

    Honorable mention: Dawnstar.

    But my favorite hold has to be either Hjaalmarch or the Reach. Maybe Haafingar..

    1 - That voice... It's the same actor who made Mr. Lachance's voice, so...)

    I like Whiterun the most, it's just so homey. But Markarth is beautiful, and is a close second.

    Probably Raven Rock. Pretty much for the reasons Edd listed, though I despise the architecture (and the Dunmer. Well not really despise, I just don't care about them). Or Markarth.

    My favorite hold is Hjaalmarch. I love the dark and frozen swampy nature of the area. Suits a werewolf or vampire quite well. As I don't consider Morthal a city, my favorite city is Markarth, for the architecture and interesting plots. I also love Windhelm, the Snowy dark streets and hint of urban blight appeals to me.

    My favorite hold is Riften. But my favorite city is Markarth!

    Markarth hands down. Vlindrel Hall is my favourite of the vanilla homes and I absolutely love dwemer ruins so the whole theme of the city is perfect for me. Besides, who doesn't love a city where the guards are all corrupt, half the city are cannibals and molag bal's shrine is located.

    I seem to be in Whiterun a lot. I think its because in Breezehome I have a barrel full of gems and ingots.
