If you had to choose from living in either Nashville or Atlanta, which would you choose to live in? (either directly in either city, or in the 'burbs of either city).

Why did you choose the one you did? Why didn't you choose the other?

I gave a 'neither' option, but of course... would prefer everyone to choose one

I would pick Atlanta. It is more urban and has a great African American population. Decent public transportation and great museums. Nashville has these items as well, but I like Atlanta's presentation of the items better.

Both are great cities, but Nashville is more "manageable" to me. ATL offers much, much more...but, as far as day-to-day life goes, I think Nashville would be a much, much better fit.

These are my two cities. Lived in Nashville for 20 years. Atlanta for 5 and growing.

Basically I'm going to have to go with Nashville but not by much. Nashville just has this vibe of fostering creativity (I'm a musician) that I have yet to find in Atlanta (yes even in Little Five Pts). At first, I thought I was just crazy but sure enough every time I come back up to Nashville to visit, I can sense that character all about the city. Sitting at SATCO eating some tex mex by the Vanderbilt campus or sipping coffee at Bongo Java. Not just that but there seems to be much more public art in Nashville than in Atlanta. Now as far as suburbia goes, Atlanta wins. Suburbs are pretty much the same everywhere nationwide. Atlanta has more to choose from over Nashville as far as dining options and whatnot but Nashville wins in the scenery department for the most part anyway.

What I get from Atlanta is a bigger city with more big city amenities and a can-do business attitude. Not bad by any means but not my cup of tea. Sure there are pockets of bohemian areas like Little Five Points but I feel like the people that hang out in these areas almost try too hard to be hip and come off a little bit ridiculous.

Basically Nashville is the thirty-something, moderately successful graphic designer that still likes to jam on his guitar on a nightly basis while Atlanta is the workaholic financial advisor, very successful forty-something that lives on his blackberry. Which do you identify with more?

If you're trying to compare the two areas for a reason, it would be better for you to list the things you are comparing (specific features of each city, etc), please.

I like both cities equally. For location i like Nashville better because it's closer to my hometown Chicago than Atlanta. But at the same time it's close to my families in Alabama and Gerorgia. I
currently live in Atlanta and go to Nashville often. Atlanta is a much bigger metropolitan area in
terms of people, businesses, jobs, malls, hotels,restaurants an etc. But that dont mean Atlanta
is bettter. If bigger means better then New York would win the title of being the best city in
everything....but it doesn't.

Nashville is booming in many aspects and is becoming more a rival to Atlanta in many ways. It's
certainly become a major city and has the potential to bust out and really grow. In recent years
it's been chosen as one of the best business markets and quality of living areas in the countrty.
It's received better ratings as a friendly place to live than Atlanta. As a city i give it a better
rating than the city of Atlanta. The inner city of Atlanta is smaller than Nashville in both population
and land area. Atlanta has more slum areas and more crime. Nashville has it to but has more
upscale neighborhoods less crime and as for social gatherings both are about the same. As for
the suburbs Atlanta has far more than Nashville. Both cities has nice suburban areas with wonderful homes. As for scenery i think Nashville has the edge. Both cities has heavy tree cover but Nashville
has more hills with scenic views.

I'm not as familiar with Nashville, but I highly doubt this.
