Almost any metro over 5 million people will have a lot of attractive and sexy women. The only ones that might be questionable is Philly and Boston.

Atlanta is one of the few examples of a Urban South. Yes people would claim Atlanta is souless sprawl but Atlanta's growth is mainly in the suburbs where that is 100% true. Atlanta is also home to MLK, Coca-Cola, Civil War, and so many other things. Its one of the few liberal areas in the south and its a comeback city like pittsburgh, minneapolis, san francisco,etc. There is actually a lot of history and density to the city that few cities in the south could match. Plus it still retains a southern culture so southern BBQ

I love Atlanta becomes it seems special; unique from other urban experiences in the US. Nature, urbanity, history, and progress all wrapped up into an overall beautiful package. And the future... I can't see anything but good things. I don't really think the city is transforming as much as it is evolving and maturing in the best way possible (short of transit). The planned developments in the city are nothing short of stunning for people like us. I can't think of a better place to be for someone who is interested in urban development.

The Phoenix is a perfect symbol for Atlanta. I think it will continue to relevant for decades to come.

Atlanta - The Non Stop city.

.
D.C. is massively densifying and urbanizing faster then any other city in this country atm and they're doing it right. While Atlanta has some neat projects, many of them come with your standard parking garage which does nothing for the environment around it. Just look at skyhouse in Midtown that was just built. Nice apartment building, ugly ass parking garage. It's urbanizing with the automobile still in mind. But as you said, the transit is still a MAJOR issue for Atlanta...like MAJOR...streetcars aren't going to help traffic around the main core, only inside of it which a very small portion of the populations lives in.

I tend to agree. To me it would have made more sense to start putting streetcars where lots of people live. As they become popular and accepted they could be expanded into the tourist and commercial zones.
