Iím curious how people think these cities stack up next to each other. Potential categories to consider are walkability, restaurants/bars, safety, architecture, vibrancy, weather, people, culture, neighborhoods, urbanity, or anything else you can think of.

COL- Louisville
Walkability- Louisville
Restaurants/Bars- Louisville, very “up & coming” food destination.
Safety- Either
Architecture- Louisville 110%
Weather- Tampa
People- Louisville
Culture- Louisville
Neighborhood- Louisville
Suburbs- Louisville
Urbanity- Louisville

Louisville overall is a very underrated and affordable destination. It’s starting to get a lot of recognition for multiple things. Obviously Tampa wins for weather and having the ocean/beaches nearby, but I think Louisville takes this one rather easily

If anyone hasn't been to Louisville lately, please come. It's literally been a 180 in just 5 years. So much going on, it is fun to watch. If Louisville was in a different (tax free state), we'd be seeing the next Austin. As is, it's steady development and slow to moderate population growth.

The only part of Tampa similar to Louisville's dense, walkable areas are Hyde Park and downtown St Pete. Other than that, Tampa is really more a collection of suburbs (very nice ones) with a downtown that still has a long way to go. In ways, Louisville reminds me of Tampa as Tampa has a very working class under element for FL (similar to Louisville).

Louisville is an appealing, likable, mid-tier American city that would offer someone that isn't looking for a high level of urban excitement a fine and comfortable place to settle.
Tampa (and I mean as an emerging metro; you really can't talk about it without including Clearwater, St. Petersburg, Bradenton and Sarasota, which are all contiguous), is a vast and emerging megalopolis that offers about every conceivable lifestyle at this point, and is still an absolute juggernaut in terms of growth.
Truth is, they simply aren't comparable on so many levels: Scale, amenities, climate, etc.
That's not to diminish one in favor of the other. But they're going to appeal to two very different types of people.

Stick to what you know, which is apparently Louisville.

Is Tampa really more urban? Also, why did you choose Louisville for people?
