I dont consider sun belt cities any different from other cities as far as being 'fast paced'.

Dallas and Atlanta dont feel any less fast paced than Boston or Philly. At least not in my opinion. Traffic is traffic.

I know what you mean. There is a difference walking or driving the streets of DC,NY or Boston than LA or Miami. But I will say Miami and LA both have that East Coast feel to them just the people are little bit happier since it is not snowing or cold half the year. LA is just huge! While driving in Miami can be very scary if your not used to it.

Sunbelt cities are not fast paced, especially compared to Northern cities. The attraction of Sunbelt cities is that they're slower paced.

The only City thats real face paced up north is NYC i have been to philly pittsburg boston etc and they all felt the same too me just more dense and compact. But the pace was still the same. But the main reason People are moving South is for affordable living you get more for your money here than you do up north. Thats a wonderful benefit If you believe in saving money.
