So then...you think Charlotte has the best skyline in the South?

One correction, Charlotte is not the fastest growing city in the U.S.

Apparently you need to learn YOUR cities because Charlotte, while growing rapidly, is NOT the fastest-growing city in the country.

This isn't even the whole Miami skyline. It is now impossible to capture it in one photograph!

Atlanta and Dallas by far to me.

I think Knoxville and Little Rock have nice skylines for their size. (not that they are anywhere near the best though...just saying)

Knoxville



Little Rock

Thumbs up This wasn't easy!

I took this photograph yesterday. I had to take my reading glasses to pull it off, but this photo represents the full spread of the Miami skyline with buildings over 500 feet tall.
