Savannah, GA. I have never really seen pictures of it before I came here. It is a beautiful city and I will visit soon.

Houston - I never realized it had such a skyline density. I concede it is slightly better than Atlanta's (VERY slghtly :thumbsup: )

Miami - more of a boomtown than I imagined.

:blink:

Nashville -Starting to wake up to compete a bit.

Charlotte - I gripe about their basing everything of a couple of buildings but I really don't believe that. It is very progressive and Nashville could take a few lessons from them (and I believe Nashville IS learning).

I have been a city fanatic ever since I would visit relatives in NJ. Cruising 95 north every summer made me research and I have always looked at maps and atlases to see city boundaries. I have a good knowledge of all southeast cities and virginia cites but I would say Birmingham has spiked my intrest. I passed through there once and would like to go again. I learned so much about the city on UP. I did not know that its population was so large in its glory days. Plus it does help that I was an aspiring architectural major in college before I switched to environmental engineering. Well that didn't work out but I still got to travel the world and see 2 world cities first hand and a few others that opened my eyes. Now I am here in vegas and I can say this. Southeastern sprawl isn't as bad as you think....... ;)

Columbia

Greenville

Spartanburg

Birmingham

Charlotte

Nashville

Memphis

Savannah (Already loved the city, but have learned so much about what is being built there since joining)

Miami

Jacksonville

Nashville because they have had the will to begin building a commuter rail system. That is very difficult to do and rare in the South. More cities should use them as an example.

I'd definitely like to take credit for being the first Arkansan on this board :-D (except for that guy who was banned a few months before I came)

I used to frequent skyscrapercity....but they got rid of search forums...which were my only way to read anything about Arkansas!

So i left.............................. and here we are, several months later.... with our very own hustling and bustling Arkansas forum, gaining new members almost every week.

(Note: I'm not trying to take credit for it!)

Memphis has a very impressive urban infrastructure and great density.

Memphis truly does. I didn't list the city because I was a fan way before I ran across UP. ;)
