Nashville should have been on the list its one of my fav cities and doesn't get much love... everyone still thinks its only a country music town. Nashville is some of the friendliest people I ever met in my life and for a huge city that has shockingly little crime. Nashville is def my city in the South to live.. Atlanta is more fun to visit but Nashville is more livable. Pittsburgh is a great city that is misunderstood as well.

I agree Nashville is the city to live in in the south, but I don't think it belongs on an underrated list. It seems to me like one of those towns where even people who haven't been there seem to have a favorable opinion of it.

I agree with this.

I was happy to see that Fort Worth made the list. It's actually one of my all time favorite cities. It's such an eclectic mix of high brow art, cowboy culture, and Tex Mex influences. And the people are SO FRIENDLY. Cost of living is relatively low, and it's chock full of amenities. It's a great city.

ESPN is coming back to town for the 3rd and 4th time this weekend AND for the National Championship game in January.

I'm pretty sure our tourism count is rising...

Odd list given that I don't think any are especially "underrated", particularly Pittsburgh or Kansas City...or the fact that NW Arkansas isn't a "city". More appropriate choices in my opinion would be Des Moines (as already mentioned) as well as places like Salt Lake City, Albuquerque, Omaha, Birmingham, Knoxville, Columbus and Richmond.

You don't think Fort Worth, Milwaukee and Oakland are underrated? Seems like a really good list to me. The cities you list are fairly rated if you ask me, beyond maybe Columbus and Omaha which are "cursed" by being in the Midwest. Same with Birmingham, and the South, though I'm not really impressed with Birmingham in particular and don't see why it should be on the list ahead of what's there already.

No way is Nashville underrated. It has become the new "it" city whatever that means.

It may have been underrated 5 - 10 years ago when you visited, though.

Pgh is just recently starting to draw attention.

Thanks for the reminder Kyle - Richmond is another underrated city I need to visit.

The only cities on this list I have been to are Milwaukee and Louisville. Milwaukee was kinda cool, but a little seedy in spots. Louisville was OK, but I wouldn't go out of my way to get there.

Other cities I have been to recently that surprised me were Nashville, Indianapolis and Columbus. (Also Seattle, but I know that is already highly rated.)
