My city of Wilmington gets overlooked by everyone because we're a stone's throw from Philly.

Our skyline (city population of around 72,000; metro population of around 635,000):



Wilmington might actually be a little too big for what you're looking for.



That Rochester, MN picture is good. That might be the most impressive of the skylines from that group in my opinion.

Some more that seem similar to what you're looking for:

Asheville, NC (72,231)


Billing, MT (98,721)


Binghamton, NY (45,492)


Juneau, AK (30,987)


Portland, ME (63,889)


Savannah, GA (128,453)


Youngstown, OH (82,837)

Thumbs up

wow, I really like it, something quiet for my taste but still very to know!
I think this should move to cityscape and skyline forum!
Love to see more, maybe I will put some from Illinois later!

Outside "Chicagoland", yes peoria is the best in Illinois. But I would still rate Evanston and Oakbrook as the 2 and 3 skylines in Illinois behind downtown Chicago.

Wow cloudrays68, did you take that picture of Spartanburg? Where from? I tried to get the Marriott in the pano I took, but that was kinda hard to do from my vantage point.




I would also add

Roanoke VA (92,631)






Macon GA (94,316)

Thanks everyone for your response!
xzmattzx, those are great additions to this thread.
Wilmington is awsome! (low-key, quiet, discrete, etc.) That city is THE perfect example of what I meant! Binghamton and Rochester (MN) is too.

I would love to see Oakbrook. I never seen their skyline.

I would like to see that same Binghamton picture in the fall.

The Billings picture is awesome too, because of the scenery.

Portland, ME, has some impressive density. I'd love to see some street-level shots of its downtown area.

In terms of natural beauty, I can't think of a state that tops Alaska.
