OK, here are four cities that are the first stops away from Greenville....basically North, South, East and West. Count up how many times you were in each city this past year and vote for the one you visited most. If my hunch is correct, Greenvillians as a group don't head South within our own state nearly as much as we head to neighboring states. I haven't been South within our state in a long while....thats sad. I would love to get know places like Charleston intimately. Greenville's positioning in the corner of the state, kind of changes our city connectivity to neighboring states......sort of like Little Rock and Memphis.....Shreveport and Dallas, etc

Please note this isn't some kind of "secede" thing, so please don't make those silly comments. We are South Carolina! I'm just curious what city we feel connected with.

I have no reason to visit Columbia unless I am either traveling through, or making a point of stopping there. I do plan on going to the Cirque du Soleil performance of 'Delirium' in May. Asheville is a great getaway, but I haven't had the time recently to get up there, unfortunately. Charleston is a very nice vacation city for me, but I typically stay out on Edisto Island while down there. I haven't had to travel to Charlotte much within the past two years, but previously my work took me there quite frequently. Atlanta is the magnet of the Southeastern U.S. region. I have family there and love spending plenty of time doing all sorts of things (vague, I know) while down there. I could very easily live in the Buckhead suburb, if I was to take a job in the city. :thumbsup:

I'm very surprised you didn't list Charleston.

Just listed the 4 "first stop" independent cities that we share a major highway with. Simple day trip cities. No Spartanburg or Anderson as for all purposes we are the same metro.

I see. Charleston is just a really popular getaway spot, so that's why I was surprised.

If I were to vote, it would be Columbia. I work in Charlotte, so it doesn't count. Atlanta definitely comes in at a close 2nd, though. I'll probably end up there next weekend.

Out of curiosity, kraZ, what is your connection with Columbia? Why so focused on that city and not Charlotte then as well? :)

Columbia is the SC city that I've identified with the most (outside of my native Orangeburg) since childhood. I've been to everything from church conventions to concerts at the Township, etc. Charlotte is cool, but for one I'm an SC boy, born and bred (talk about Palmetto loyalty, LOL). Secondly, the city just seems a bit too stuffy for me; Columbia is more of a laid back city with a youthful vibe. And then there's the general NC superiority complex. :sick:

My favorite nearby city I travel to for leisure trips is Asheville. A very laid-back art's towns that is walk able. I have never really enjoyed Atlanta or Charlotte because of the endless sprawl and the inability to park your car and "walk the town."

Which city has everyone voted for? If you voted but didn't tell us where, how do we know if you're from Greenville? That is the whole point of this thread. :thumbsup:

As I started the thread, it was probably obvious....Atlanta.

I think some non-Greenvillians have voted.

I know at least a couple non-Greenvillians voted, but I doubt we'll hear from them. <_<

OK. I just just voted. I don't really go to Columbia, just no reason to. But I travel to Atl and Charlotte about the same. Have family and friends in both cities. But if I had to say the one I have been to the most, it would be, hum..... Charlotte. Just not so dramatic. And thats said in a good way. :D

Well guys, this post has become irrelevent. It was meant for Greenvillians to vote....guess I should have worded it better.

You don't think there are 24 of us here? :lol:

Methinks it would've made little if any difference to reword the opening. Can't trust everyone you run into. <_<

What would you all think about closing this thread then?

Has anyone counted heads? How many of us are there? Who voted? It'd be cool if the creator of the poll were somehow able to see WHO voted, but NOT WHAT they voted. Another customization for the board? :unsure: Hmmm...

I don't have that ability, but I could imagine the admins do. Inany case, until we know for sure, this thread is at a stopping-point. Hopefully any similar threads in the future will attract honest votes only. It was a great idea, gsupstate. :thumbsup:

I checked with the admins on this, but apparently very little exists for them to pull logs for each vote. I guess that means we'll have to make every poll open to everyone until something is created to allow exclusive voting. :)
