Aside from the DC metro, where I already live in (although I wouldn't consider it Southern), I would probably choose Raleigh. The pace of life just isn't too slow compared to other places in the South, and it's a great place to find a career.

I find many southern cities to be boring. You need a car to get around almost all of the time which is not appealing to me. It's true that housing is cheap but I'd rather take a smaller house in a vibrant, walkable city. And yes, like people have been saying DC is definitely a NE city.

lol not one South Carolina city on the list? Not even Charleston? No Savannah?

Lousiville is a southern city? Lol that is defintion of midwestern. Baltimore is a southern city? lol

I think Texas is more like the southwest than the southeast.
