This cannot even be a contest, you are talking about two cities that are light years difference.

Not that Cincinnati isn't a great city in it's own right, but this isn't a fair comparison in terms of size not to mention that the two cities have been headed in opposite directions in terms of prosperity and development.

The population difference isn't as huge as it might seem. Atlanta has just over 5 million in the metro, Cincinnati + Dayton (suburbs are completely grown together) have just over 3 million people.

Cincinnati has a lot more gritty urban architecture and neighborhoods, Atlanta has very little historic buildings but has tons of new ones.

That's a common misconception about Atlanta...there are tons of historic highrises and other structures in the city. Cincinnati was a large city earlier than Atlanta, but by 1900 they were both major U.S. cities with large skylines - and both cities have a large inventory of historic buildings to prove it.

I may be wrong, but the comparison isn't Atlanta vs. Cincinnati/Dayton combined, but Atlanta vs. Cincinnati. And Atlanta's population is not "just over 5 million", but 5.8 million to 2.2 million for Cincy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Table_o...tistical_Areas That is a large difference in size, with Atlanta nearly 3 times the population of Cincinnati.

I stand by my comment that it isn't a fair comparison due to the differences in size and scope, and of course you have a right to disagree -but there is no need to post false information to prove your point. Cincy is a beautiful city with lots to offer, but this seems like a unfair comparison to me.

That fact can be both a negative and positive, depending on the person surveyed.

Bigger can certainly mean more work, while limiting live and play.

Smaller can mean more live and play, while limiting work.

The question seeks a subjective opinion.
