Yes, because we know how hilly Charles, Prince George's and Anne Arundel counties in Maryland are. Your map doesn't even have Baltimore on the fall line, if it all.Plus Fredericksburg should be completely to the east of the fall line. It's a nice map and all, but I'd take my chances with the elevation one I provided. Take a look at other state maps from the website, and see where 150-300 feet lies in other states -- and then come back and tell me that level of elevation can be considered hilly. You won't be able to.

This is about as hilly as it gets in Houston, at least the city proper.

There are more going north/northwest of here, but anything within about 100 miles of the Gulf Coast is flat. Basically, all of Florida.

Miami is probably one of the flattest cities on the mainland US.

You have to drive a LONG way to find real hills here.

Obviously, you either don't know where Baltimore is or you don't know how to read maps, because the map I pointed to showed a black line straight through Baltimore, with 2/3rds of Baltimore being on piedmont. Again, you site coastal plain counties, as though they somehow support your argument. Arguing with you is like arguing with an ill informed rock.

Their used to be even more hills in Seattle than we have now.

The area of Seattle stretching north of the central business district from Stewart Street to Mercer Street is usually dubbed the Denny Regrade, acknowledging the area's forcible flattening by city engineers early in the twentieth century. It incorporates the older Belltown district, originally west of 2nd Avenue but today more broadly defined by its various denizens.
