Is this a joke??!! Jacksonville claims that it is the "largest city in Florida" simply because the entire county is incorporated into it's city limits, hence that makes this statement highly questionable and inaccurate. I hate to break it to you, but the fact is that Jacksonville is most certainly NOT the largest metro in Florida. In fact, Miami, Orlando, and Tampa are all much larger and faster growing metros than Jacksonville. Please see the 2010 Census statistics below:

Miami-Fort Lauderdale-Pompano Beach - 5,828,191
Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater 2,783,236
Orlando-Kissimmee-Sanford 2,134,411
Jacksonville 1,502,515

Raleigh is not in the same league as Atlanta. Not even close. Neither are Charlotte or Nashville, really, although they all compete for businesses to some extent.

LOL,,, Really enough of the madness....These people need to come to Atlanta to see and experience how huge it really is. Buckhead skyline alone blows Raleigh, Nashville and almost Charlotte out of the water. This is is even few years old, many more buildings have gone up since this was taken..

In a general sense, Raleigh/Durham, Charlotte, and Nashville are in the same neighborhood as Atlanta. I know the Atlanta metro is massive, but all four are in the same "New South" neighborhood. These four are the "New South" areas that are firmly in the South, others like Orlando, Northern Virginia, Austin, and Dallas/Ft. Worth are kind of peripheral. Really, despite the size, Raleigh is much more similar to Atlanta over Birmingham or Memphis.

Oh, okay. I see what you're saying. I'd agree with that.

Charlotte is 30-40 years of significant growth behind the Atlanta of today. Nashville and Raleigh probably closer to 50 years. But yes, all of them compete with one another for jobs. That's more or less where the similarities end.
