SSP is far from dead in the Texas section. I don't really know about the others.

Thank you! (not god!)... someone finally realizes that Richmond is the top southern city... capital of the Confederacy- capital of the South

1. Richmond, Virginia (capital of confederacy-obvious winner)
2. Norfolk, Virginia (Oceana Naval Air Station, Norfolk Naval Base, largest in U.S.)
3. Arlington, Virginia (Arlington National Cemetery, The Marine Corps War Memorial, close to D.C., metro)
4. Fairfax County, Virginia (highest median income in the U.S., home to the CIA, Tyson's Corner, the country's 12th largest business district, Mount Vernon, Dulles International Airport (partly in the county), Volkswagon of America, Capitol One, George Mason University)
5. Charlottesville, Virginia (The University of Virginia and Monticello)
6. Williamsburg, Virginia (College of William and Mary and Historic Williamsburg)

OK... i'm a little biased

But Charlottesville and Williamsburg are two of the nicest small college town/cities in America

In order of relative importance to the national economy based on business activity.
well... Virginia does not have a mega city... Richmond and Norfolk are medium-sized... but I have a question... what state was voted best state for business by Forbes in 2006, 2007, and 2008?

Dallas looks big from that angle. well from all angle's. my list is right here and its going to be hard to say

Big Cities:
Houston-4th biggest city, multiple skylines, banking
Atlanta-Big and Small at the same time, and lots more but thats all
Baltimore-(if you want to say its the south which its not to be)Looks very northern even though it is southern, some of the greatest amounts of redevelopment in the south, and im from there lol
Miami-3rd largest skyline in the USA, to me its not much to do
Charlotte-2nd largest banking center in USA, lots of development, will have the tallest building in the south in floor count, if Miami Empire towers dont get built, The best city in USA (forgot the source).

Only 5 big cities way to hard to say

Medium Cities:
Greenville, SC-A future automobile center (BMW's soul outside Germany), Possibly in 20 years will have its 2nd skyline, lots of business investments.

Can somebody help me im tired.

These are all places that I've visited and I'm familiar with...Oklahoma and Arkansas are not included because I haven't been there. Same with San Antonio, Austin, Huntsville, Norfolk, and Lexington. I don't think anyone can properly rank places they haven't experienced. I got tired of listing all the great things about each city.


Big Cities:
1. Baltimore - colonial history and architecture, great waterfront, ethnic neighborhoods, very urban, beautiful rowhouses, Camden Yards

2. New Orleans - unique culture, French/Spanish combination architecture and history, the French Quarter, great restaurants, big party and entertainment

3. Atlanta - rich Civil War history, great turn of the century highrise preservation, beautiful in-town neighborhoods, great economy/growth/development, nice skyline, MARTA, excellent universities, music scene

4. Dallas - great skyline, explosive growth/development, good nightlife, friendly people, the Cowboys, barbecue and Tex-Mex, Texas State Fair, DART, diverse economy

5. Miami - beaches, beautiful winter weather, booming skyline, music, Key Biscayne and the Keys/barrier islands, Dolphins and Hurricanes football, unique architecture, beautiful scenery, great nightlife, very clean

6. Houston - big city with down-home people, great skyline 7. Tampa - Ybor City, beaches 8. Charlotte - nice skyline, clean, booming economy 9. Louisville - Olmstead Parks system, great neighborhoods, the riverfront 10. Memphis - historic buildings, Beale Street, barbecue, the river

Smaller Cities
1. Charleston
2. Savannah
3. Winston-Salem
4. Chattanooga
5. Asheville
6. Annapolis
7. Wilmington
8. Columbia
9. Greenville
10. Richmond

College Towns
1. Chapel Hill
2. Charlottesville
3. Athens
4. Tuscaloosa
5. Boone
6. Auburn
7. Davidson
8. Gainesville
9. Blacksburg
10. College Park

Baltimore-DC-NOVA is definitely the most important area in the region.

Houstonian, it's your list and you have the right to your opinion. I really wouldn't disagree until you put Austin at 6 and New Orleans at 7?? Of all the cities you listed Austin should be last. Houston, Dallas,Miami, and Atlanta are w/o question the top 4. You could draw those out of a hat and whatever the list you would be neither right or wrong. For me:

5.New Orleans,LA
6.Charlotte,N.C.
7.Charleston,S.C.
8.Raleigh (Triad area),N.C.
9.Savannah,GA
10.Memphis,TN

I would agree except I don't think Houston belongs in a list of top ten cities ever, unless we're talking fattest, sweatiest, most-polluted, least soul, etc.

You are entitled to your opinion. Look foward to never having to see you down here. We'll be living it up here without you.
