Also, Charleston, WV.
Charleston, WV is underrated indeed. I love driving through the city and seeing the skyline and the government buildings. It's a neat little city.

I gotta say, maybe this I just hearing "Providence is underrated" constantly in New England. But most people in New England seem to rate it pretty highly and housing there isnt really that cheap to live there. Great food, great nightlife, strip club capital of New England, but most people rate it properly.

I should clarify, when people rate New England cities Providence is always #2. Nobody ever says Providence, Worcester, Springfield, Lowell, Manchester, Hartford? All the same.

Outside New England, most people know roughly zero things about Providence though, to be fair.

No love for Helena, MT? It's a decent city. It's not my favorite Montana city though.

I think Richmond is underrated. It has some really interesting architecture and neighborhoods. There is some history there and some decent cultural institutions like a really nice museum of art and some good parks/gardens. You just rarely hear about it unless you live w/in a couple of hours. I think it gets overshadowed by DC and NOVA, and it doesn't have professional sports or a Power 5 university, so it just isn't in the public eye very often.

I haven't spent much time there, but Columbus Ohio seems alright and it has a pretty low profile nationally. I think all of the Ohio cities suffer from lack of branding since they all start with a "c" and are similar sizes. A lot of people seem to know Cleveland and kind of forget about Columbus and Cinci.

I think OKC is definitely underrated and over-disliked.
