True

San Francisco- Seattle
Portland/ Oakland - Tacoma

Very similar feels
With amazing differences of course. Each city is unique

I've only passed through Indianapolis but I wonder how similar it is to Columbus which is a nice city. Physically and geographically the two look kinda similar.

Note: I left in 2014 and haven't been back since, but I'm visiting later this year.
I'll better be able to answer your question if you tell me similar to Baltimore in what way?

I do think that both have benefited, overall, from their relative proximities to DC, but both would probably be more prominent cities had DC never existed. Richmond would probably be Baltimore's size, and Baltimore would probably be Philly's size. It's an interesting study to ponder how the creation of The Capital effected both!

Let us know how your trip back goes! Definitely some changes but I think you will like the direction the city us headed! Richmond is truly one of the premier cities in the country in that 1-2 million range and I'll always be proud to call it home...

its interesting to think about how things impact each other


the Capital almost was selected along the Delaware river in NJ just North of Trenton.


Makes you wonder what the impact would have been.


The capital would have been 15 miles from the Philly city border and about 30 from the NYC border had that location been the selection. It was the runner up to DC

Both Charlotte and Nashville could legitimately claim to be Atlanta's little sister, and to a lesser extent, Birmingham.
