Have you ever been to Nashville? It's very hilly.

This is Dornbush St. Pictures give the slope of this hill no justice. It is so steep that you cannot see the top of the hill from the bottom. I hava a friend that lives near the top. The homes in this once thriving area were custom made Sears Catalog houses put together on site by the original owners.

I attached some factual information. People will try to disagree, but facts are facts.

Yeah...I doubt that list is consistent, especially with Portland and Birmingham being so low.

Looking at Google Maps terrain:
Urban Areas of 500,000+ (In no particular order)
Seattle
San Francisco
San Diego
Kansas City
Omaha
Nashville
Birmingham
Atlanta
Cincinnati
Pittsburgh
+Knoxville

I didn't realize, until after I already had 10 cities listed, that Knoxville's urban area is over 500,000. I couldn't discern which of the first 10 to take out to put in Knoxville.

I would rank them as:

Seattle
San Francisco
San Diego
Pittsburgh ...these are all pretty close

Portland ... needs to be on the list

Cincinnati
Knoxville...

Nashville
Birmingham...

Omaha


Knoxville definitely beats out ATL for hilly, also KC and the others. I'm not sure which should remain as #10. Omaha has steep hills near the river but elsewhere?? KC has a lot of gentle hills.
