You'd get better feedback if you put this question in the General US forum. Just putting something like this specifically in the Atlanta or the Houston board would be way too biased because the people in the poll would be more biased toward their respective cities.

Besides, both cities are well-known and famous in their own special way. Houston has the energy industry, NASA, the biggest medical center in the world, etc.

Atlanta is known for transportation (Delta), Coca-Cola, Martin Luther King, etc.

Having visited Houston many times and as a current resident of Atlanta, I can certainly say that Houston feels a lot more cosomopolitan than Atlanta. I found it to be a lot more diverse and international than most parts of Metro Atlanta.

Atlanta wins hands down! Atlanta is queen of the south and when people want a fast paced life with a little southern hospitality in the mix I know atlanta would be their first choice and is why the population is growing so fast.

In the '80s and earlier, Houston. Since the '90s, Atlanta.

People are probably just as likely to associate NASA with Florida as they are Houston.

I never really thought of it that way. It's funny that the Texas guys scoff at Coke and CNN by saying that people think CNN is a New York based company and that people overseas don't know where Coke is based. Too funny.

I feel like Houston's rep took a decline when the Enron scandal hit.

Topic starter, why would you put it here in an Atlanta forum? You should do it in General US. What if I put it in Houston's forum? What good would it do to get a biased report.

It's true . You should visit more world forums sometime (as in not City Data). It's not just Texas guys saying it.

What are the names of the forums. I found city-data when writing a paper on US Hist I and google kept on bringing me to this site. On the general forum I put in my opinion.

SkyscraperPage and SkyscraperCity. Both are much larger than City-Data, though don't really compete with City-Data. The other two forums have a more urban mindset and let members speak their mind more. All three can coexist though, but the other two places (well basically SkyscraperPage) has been getting a lot of people from City-Data.

Atlanta has its own local forum, too. It's called Atlanta Metroscape. It's small now, but growing.
