It depends on what you consider "major". I don't consider places like El Paso, OKC, Tacoma, and Omaha to be "major."

I think in terms of major cities, San Antonio, San Jose, Sacramento, and Norfolk/VA Beach take the cake on this. All of those cities however live in the shadow of much more popular cities nearby. San Antonio would likely get a lot more attention if it wasn't for Austin being so close. San Jose and Sacramento are both overshadowed by San Francisco. Norfolk/VA Beach is overshadowed by Richmond and NoVA.

I would say that the bolded is more of trends of attention on this forum instead of real life.

Well no one defined major so at this point major is subjective, and those are the cities that I choose

Fort Lauderdale.. Sadly overshadowed by Miami even though they are both very different cities with different vibes, competition has gotten very aggressive between both cities in recent years..

Actually both Richmond and Norfolk/Virginia Beach are overshadowed by Baltimore, DC, Raleigh-Durham and Charlotte. Those cities have major league sports, large airports that offer non-stop coast to coast flights and sport a TV station that is owned by at least one of the big four networks ( for example Raleigh-Durham's WTVD channel 11 is owned by ABC/Disney while FOX owns their station in Charlotte ). Even though both Richmond and Norfolk/Virginia Beach have well over a million each in their respected metros there are a good many folks out there who will still snicker and laugh if one is to say "Metro Richmond" and still believe that Virginia Beach is some small seaside town where Pat Robertson still rules. I am NOT kidding !!

Cincinnati by far people forget it even exists. I would say Jacksonville and Indy get little press as well.

Ok... I think we should have a rule that if a city at least has an NFL team, you can't say that "BY FAR people forget it even exists", because I certainly don't and I live in Texas.
