I just watched a YouTube Video of Greenville....Seemed pretty decent. They Mentioned something call "Falls Park" "Liberty Bridge" and showed a small waterfall in middle of Downtown. Mm maybe I should go one day

I remember as a kid we used to take road trips to Huntsville to visit that NASA Space Station Mueseum...good times man

It is a 30 foot waterfall and then a 20 foot one or so after that. The pedestrian bridge is one of a kind bridge that is only suspended on one side.

Falls Park is ranked a top 10 park in the country by Trip Advisor.

What makes Memphis better in those areas than Greenville?

Memphis is a tier above all the cities on this list and significantly higher in population.

Having said that, it wouldn't be in top 4-5 of choices from the list. I voted for Greeneville, but I also really like Huntsville and Knoxville.

I'm a HUGE fan of both Greenville and Chattanooga. Voted Greenville because I have an SC bias but can't fault either.

My knowledge of these cities is extremely limited. I've visited Knoxville and Lexington very briefly and driven through Columbia. Never been to any of the others (at least since I've been old enough to remember) My guess is that I'd probably like Memphis the most based on sheer size. But from what I've heard and read about Greenville and Chattanooga they both stand a chance despite the smaller (Gville) and much smaller (Chatt) populations.

Greenville is nicer looking, safe, and family friendly. You don't see title loans, strip clubs, and vagrants in Greenville's downtown. I also like how the area is growing. Chattanooga also has a much nicer downtown as well.

Without getting into city population vs metro vs urban area, Chattanooga is and feels almost twice as large as Greenville. Downtown Chattanooga has a much larger footprint. Both have significant infill. Chatt's infill is mostly hotels, banks, and a convention center with the bulk of the residential infill on the north shore. And thus not in the CBD to my opinion. Greenville has mostly residential/mixed use infill downtown with a lot of parking garages so people from the many surrounding small towns can and do enjoy downtown.

Greenville has an amazing downtown and park system. It's a city on the rise. Memphis is still a bigger metro, but has been going the wrong way for years.

Knoxville is a good town, a little more reasonable, better tax environment. I'd put it second to Greenville.

Memphis does seem a little out of place on this list, as it is the only one (I think) with a metro population over 1 million, and by quite a bit.
