Right there with you, Bob. They're all fine cites in my opinion.

You must be forgetting everything then. Atlanta has TONS of history. I'd like to hear your opinion as to how and why Atlanta doesn't have any history as well. I'll probably get a kick out of it.

Anyway, back to topic.. I've always considered Birmingham to be Alabama's Atlanta. Not that the two are exactly alike. Differences have been said earlier in the thread so I won't explain.

My reasoning for always saying this is to try and give the outsider another idea about the city other than one assuming that Birmingham is just a podunk, country larger town in Alabama. Sure, there are tons of country, southern accents found in Birmingham, but it doesn't reflect the city itself. I could go on, but I'm hoping that most people reading got my point.

Asides from the few tall buildings in Bham i'd pit Huntsville more of Alabama's Atlanta. It's definitely a better place to live with better job opportunities unless you work in the medical field. Huntsville is probably the only city in Alabama i'd ever actually live in.

They even have their own version of Atlantic Station
