Orlando and Tampa should not be combined into a single entity. If you're going to do that, then Milwaukee should be combined with Chicago.

The distance is about the same from Chicago to Milwaukee in comparison from Tampa to Orlando, so if you're going to combine those 2 FL cities based on proximity to each other, shouldn't you do the same to other cities in close proximity to each other? IE, Chicago and Milwaukee who are actually closer to each other than Tampa and Orlando.

Not to mention NYC and Philly that are closer than either of the two referenced.

They're the same distance apart as Tampa and Orlando, without all the undeveloped land in between. Not to mention we have train service between Milwaukee and Chicago, unlike Tampa and Orlando.

I don't really think Milwaukee and Chicago should be combined, I just think it's stupid to pretend like Tampa and Orlando are that interconnected as to be combined for a ranking such as this.

WTF

one, SF is NOT part of Silicon Valley.

two, Tampa and Orlando should not be combined. And I don't know what this "high tech corridor" is about. High tech for Florida maybe.

You aren't fooling ANYBODY especially this native Floridian.

Not true at all. There is Amtrak service between Tampa & Orlando.

That's pretty disingenuous. Amtrak's Silver Meteor passes through Orlando and Tampa twice daily, once in each direction. Meanwhile, Amtrak's Hiawatha Service operates 7 roundtrips between Milwaukee and Chicago daily and 6 on the weekends.

What kind of retarded question is that? The Greater Milwaukee area is home to 8 Fortune 500 companies. As a percentage of the population, Milwaukee has the fifth-highest concentration of top companies in the country.
