Hello everyone.

People often describe Philadelphia as run down but with plenty of character and some people discribe Atlanta as cookie cutter but dangerous. Complete contrasts, so which area metro do you think is the most manicured, well maintained and visually appealing to the eyes. Use whatever you like to support your argument.

A brief luxury hotel stat comparison.
Metro Philadelphia-3
Metro Atlanta-9

I think Philadelphia is more upscale, but what do you think?

Atlanta has some very tony suburbs along GA 400, but Philadelphia's Main Line suburbs are some of the best in the country. People seriously underestimate the amount of money there is in the Philadelphia area.

This is sure to be good! Atlanta with tripple the number of luxury hotels, riddled with celebrities and home to 30327, one of the nation's wealthiest zip codes against Philadelphia? Okay, lol.

We all know there's plenty of money in both places, but the OP's question is which metro is more upscale, better maintained and appealing visually?

I visited Philly for the 4th of July and while it has character and appeal, Atlanta seems to be more upscale IMHO! Philly is nice though!

I mean don't me wrong, atlanta is beautiful with all the the hills and trees but I didn't see anything like rittenhouse square or society hill there. I also think inner city philadelphia is more up to date and cleaner than atlanta.

Philadelphia has a much older city and region - so naturally it doesn't possess the glitz and gleam of the Atlanta area. Atlanta has a lot of $60k/yr "millionaires" racing around in their BMWs and Lexus vehicles, but in terms of true wealth, I think that the understated Philadelphia area probably wins ...
