Tampa is the 2nd city in Florida

Hilo is the largest city on the Big Island and the second largest city in the state. UH has a campus there. It's basically a big town and the commercial center for the Big Island.

It's debatable. Orlando definitely has the larger profile being a huge tourism/convention destination.

I agree. Orlando is a destination where most us have probably been at least a few times for the reasons you mention.

I think there are a lot of places in Maryland that could claim second city - Salisbury, Hagerstown, Frederick, Annapolis, and Bethesda/Chevy Chase, perhaps. I'd have to pick Annapolis, as it's the capitol, and is home to the naval academy, as well as having a dense vibrant community.

While the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex is larger than Greater Houston, Greater Houston is wealthier.

Excellent rational Dawn. I agree 100%.

I said Bellevue as well but I think only Washingtonians would know that.

I would agree. Savannah is a desired destination. The other cities in the state are just there, but not of much interest either inside of outside of the state.

In what measure? Orlando is home to the world class amusement parks that draw people from all over the USA and the world, a better more diversified economy, a more international feel than sleepy, suburban Tampa.

Tampa maybe bigger (in metro area) but this thread is not about metro area population sizes, otherwise people would just look that up!
