Edinburgh Scotland. You can fish while your wife travels through each side of the city, modern and historical. So much culture, old and new. Plus the fishing isn't bad either.

Washington DC/Shenandoah National Park.

Standing in the middle of downtown DC, you are less than 2 hours from a wonderful small stream brook trout fishery.

I agree that it's a great choice! But we've been there a lot, and so I'm looking for other options as well.

LA man!

You have the fancy restaurants in Silverlake, where the lady can do some amazing shopping, paying twice as much for used, sorry, 'vintage' clothing. You can pay $10 for an pint of an IPA that you can get elsewhere for $6, but that is the charm of the area. And of course, the mighty LA River. (Don't think the steelhead are running this time of year)

Then if you want a more urban experience, head east to Echo Park, where the better half can peruse the up and coming boutiques and then have dinner at the various vegan restaurants that should satiate the pickiest of eaters. Of course, you can always hit up Echo Park Lake and bump elbows with the most famous of trust fund babies who ask you why you're fishing and why you're hurting the fish.

A few miles east, you can hit up Lincoln Park Lake, where there are dozens of bass to tangle with, and you can also view the outdoor graffiti galleries that seem to pop up over night all over the area. Bansky would be proud.

After a few days of hitting these city stillwaters and the amazing LA River for the migrating trophy carp, eating sushi at Nobu (LA location, not the Malibu one) will finish up the cosmopolitan vacation you are seeking.

(PM me if you want a guided trip to Lincoln Park without getting jacked for your gear)

New Orleans could fit the bill, with solid saltwater fly fishing for red fish within a coupe of hours from the city.

Ouch.

Forgot the Internet doesn't have a /facetious tag any longer.

No worries, Yikes and I share the fact that SoCal has nowhere to fly fish seriously. The post was all made in jest.

Speaking of jest, you must be a Cardinals fan.

Good quest, I like it! US cities ... it's tough depending on the amount of cultural experiences to satisfy the requirement. It sounds like places like Durango aren't quite going to cut it. Denver? Not enough.

SF was a good one, what about Seattle or Portland? I'm not sure how far you have to go for fishing, but there is plenty to do in each city. I prefer Seattle. The last time I was in Portland just getting out of the city was a nightmare.

What about Austin? The west Texas hill country is quite beautiful, there's got to be some good bass fishing around somewhere, maybe even right in town.

Boise would put you in a big(ish) city with very good trout fishing nearby.

But if Europe was an option, I'd go that route for certain. Anywhere you go the cultural experiences will be great just by nature of being in a foreign country. And same goes for the fishing, any little stream to explore with wild trout will be super fun. European trout!
