Huntsville and Chattanooga are some of the nicest cities in the South, let alone, in the nation. Because both cities are similar in size, populstion, and other aspects. Which city is the best city, considering retail, jobs, housing market, schools, people, entertainment, and others?

Excellent and difficult comparison. I'm not a fan of Alabama as a whole, but I would choose Huntsville over Choo Choo Town. Mainly due to better economic possibilities and diversity.

I wouldn't call it dislike, more like apprehension. The images and history of civil injustice and unrest have always made me wary to live in Alabama. I do realize Alabama has probably grown well beyond that period.

Alabama has grown from that image! I still lives here today, but in a small percentage. In fact, racism is still present everywhere, but not that "deep." Alabama is moving into a brighter future, with Huntsville starting it off! Don't worry, Alabama is one of the best places to live, especially during these times. Don't let the media and what other people say make you think about Alabama in a bad way. If you visit Alabama, you would fall in love with it, I promise!!!!!!!!!!!

I like Huntsville a lot. One thing it has going for it is the big NASA campus, which is really neat. But I would still rather go Chattanooga Choo Choo. It's a beautiful city, great scenery (the mountains are nice too :-) and bigger. Great downtown with the ballpark and aquarium, UTC and decent nightlife. I considered moving there for a while but it didn't work out.

Chattanooga seems like it has more to do than Huntsville and it has a terrific downtown. Huntsville probably has a stronger local economy than Chattanooga, but Chattanooga is no sleeper there either, having recently landed a huge VW manufacturing plant.

I only say this as someone who has researched the heck out of both cities, searching where to relocate to. I have yet to visit either city though so my vote is shakey, but Chatt is where it's at.
