And the whole saying of "quality over quantity" is true in most aspects, but I don't think so in this one.

And NYC is a good location in the BosWash corridor, but Philly and Baltimore are better positioned more in the middle.

Philly and Baltimore are best positioned.

Reno has pretty good location, close to Sacramento, Bay Area, Lake Tahoe and Yosemite Valley.

There's been lots of talk of the middle of the bo-wash corridor but much talk about the northern stretch. I live in providence and love having Boston, Newport, Rhode Island beaches and Cape Cod all within an hours reach. Also, you've got NYC, Portland Maine, philly, Burlington Vermont and Montreal only 3-6 hours away.

Personally i prefer Boston and DC to Philly and Baltimore. And La is close to SD and SF...It all depends on cities you like

Reno is often overshadowed by Las Vegas. Reno is a decent city and as you said top notch location.

Boston is too far from NY and DC and other major East Coast cities.

Outside the DC-Boston corridor, I'd say.....

- Orlando in Central Florida is close to all the other major cities in the state including Tampa, Jacksonville and Miami

- Columbus, Ohio also has a good central location, not too far from Cleveland, Cincinnati, and Dayton, plus Pittsburgh isn't too far

- Savannah, Georgia is reasonably close to Atlanta, Charleston SC, and Jacksonville

- Los Angeles is close to both San Diego and Las Vegas

- Las Vegas is close to LA, San Diego, and Phoenix.

- Denver has a good central location on the Front Range with Colorado Springs and Boulder close by

As for smaller cities close to a large metro area....

Morgantown WV is an hour from Pittsburgh.

Hagerstown MD is an hour from Washington DC. The Eastern Panhandle of WV is also close to Baltimore and DC. York PA is close to Baltimore.
