Agreed. Not to mention the bastard stepchild in the NFL despite not having the worst attendance issues...

I would say Saint Paul, Minnesota. It has a population of 285,068, and has a pretty big downtown. The reason it is ignore is because of how close it is to Minneapolis, which has about 100,000 more people than Saint Paul does.

Saint Paul also has a very good skyline too, which is also overlooked.

Why cant saint paul get its act together? Minneapolis is so much more progressive. When is the last time a building of significant height went up in saint paul?

St. Paul has a major pro sports arena with a major pro sports league team they can honestly call their own. The city also has light rail.

All of those are things Fort Worth (a city that's bigger than both of the Twin Cities) does NOT have.

..... tell the people of St. Paul to count their blessings.

And lastly, you're dissin' me while giving me a rep up? Must be a troll. I would have just inboxed you all this back, but since you were too cowardly to name yourself, I thought I'd just put this up so EVERYONE could see.....

Stay classy, Annoymous.
Not to mention that it's more correctly "are stereotyped as" instead of his half-assed attempt at the English language.

One city that gets overlooked is Omaha. I recently spent 2 weeks there----thriving, lively downtown, arts scene, music scene, foodie scene. Very cool historic district (Old Market) where thousands of people live in converted warehouses and old commercial buildings from the 1800's. Very artsy vibe. Loved it.

LOL, Indianapolis takes the cake on this one. Don't forget Columbus too. Not sure if they're considered major cities though.

They're BOTH major cities.

And compared to Fort Worth and St. Paul, they have all the recognition in the world.

Kansas City, really. If the city had slightly better transportation, I think KCMO would be up there with Minneapolis, Seattle, and Denver. First off, it is a very beautiful city that is really hilly and forested. The Downtown is pretty vibrant and has some awesome architechture. The climate is nice imo. Great shopping with The Plaza. Family friendly suburbs.

I just don't get why the city is so underrated.
