All of the newly developed cities in the Sun-belt seem to be built with this housing-development mentality. Of course there are some older cities in the South that are the exception to this rule, New Orleans and Charleston come to mind, but just about every other city that I can think of in this country are designed in the same low-density, strip malls, big box store, bad public transportation and lots of freeways design.

Apparently a lot of people enjoy this design, otherwise 70% of America wouldn't be living in rural or suburban areas. However, its definitely not for me.
There are several cities outside the areas you mentioned that have walkable parts.
