I had ubereats $5 lunch special for lunch and used postmates to get someone to walk my dog since I was going to be later then I thought. To me everyday amenities like these are only found in big cities.

New "cutting edge" stuff will always be available in the larger cities first as they are usually the best testbeds as well as are the trendsetters in adapting new ideas.
Ubereats is in charleston sc now. (On the peninsula ) and charleston is a small city compared to alot of cities. Population around 120k or so. You dont have to go to big cities to get exclusive things

Charleston isn't that small. Nearly a million people in the metro.

So we've had it for about half a yr now and I can order Korean, Vietnamese, Ethiopian, Japanese, Thai, Laotion, Ice Cream, Desserts, Greek, Russian, all sorts of fusiont/hybrid restaurants, etc... and they run daily specials everyday. I assume since you now have ubereats you have all of the same options too?

There could also be a point made for college towns offering a lot in relation to their size, as they tend to have their share of cultural events/institutions and have some degree of cultural diversity among its population.

Compare to atlanta,dc, mjami, ect it is very small. Small also depends on where you are from. If you are from a small town of 10k or w.e anything is big to you but if you from philly alot of places will seem small to you

Well, yeah, but Charleston isn't remotely comparable to those cities.

You've never been to New Haven, I'm guessing.

We aren't talking about New Haven, and the city isn't particularly vibrant and dynamic for a major university town.

I'm not a "CSA booster". The fact is that this is part of the NYC metro area. Argue with the Census if you don't like official Census business rules.

Jazz and Ribs fest downtown on the Scioto Mile and kayaking on a hot summer day this weekend.



Boating on Alum Creek State Park.



Pedal Wagon, drink craft beer as you and your friends pedal your way through the short north with pit stops at local bars and art galleries.



Columbus Museum of Art has works of Picasso on display and is completely free every Sunday.



Authentic German sausages and draft beer in German Village




$3 dollar tacos and artisan margaritas in mason jars that are $4 during happy hour



That's just a very small sample of activities you can do during the summer. No we are not New York, nor would I want us to be. If you feel the need for a plethora of 24/7 night clubs, thousands of types of ethnic food or an intricate subway system then you won't find that here. That hardly means that you won't find fun activities, accomplished people or beauty in our city .

Mid-sized cities are nice but they can be a bit annoying sometimes with "proving" how great they are. Example, #1 per capita in basically everything. Most of them are like this to an extent, although some significantly more than others. Also, the yuppies in mid-sized cities are paradoxically more stuck up than those in large cities.

I personally prefer small towns & very large cities.
