Yakima, WA, is its own metro area. Apparently 77% of the nation's hops are grown in Yakima Valley (metro Yakima)....so beer drinkers consider that. Also a big grape/wine and apple region.

El Paso.

Centralia is probably the most important/well known, but Camas is the largest C city in WA. Camas has 21,846 people vs 16,753 people for Centralia.

I think this thread is fun as it doesn't actually represent population, but importance. So it is somewhat subjective! I love that. But more glory to Camas!

You must not have spent a lot of time in Virginia.

Amherst Alexandria is far more important, historically and economically.
Blacksburg
Charlottesville
Doswell (I'd pick Danville over that)
Elkton (My second choice for Maryland's "E", but I'll have to give Virginia's almost out of the state on I-95 city, Emporia).
Fredericksburg
Gordonsville
Hopewell (Harrisonburg is at least known by those near Shenadoah National Park, I've never heard of that town until today. Hampton would also be better.)
Iron Gate
Jarratt
Kenbridge
Lexington
Martinsville (also my second choice and there is an important NASCAR track, but Manassas gets my vote, both historically and due to its proximity to DC, along with Jiffy Lube Live!)
Newport News (even Tiderwater folks consider Norfolk the anchor city)
Orange
Petersburg
Quantico
Richmond
Staunton
Troutville (Tysons Corner by far, being the second largest business district after DC itself in its metro)
Uubanna
Vinton (uh, ever heard of Virginia Beach, the largest city in the state?)
West Point (where's Williamsburg, known all over for its Colonial atmosphere? I'd give West Point to New York though. Even Winchester and Warrenton are more well-known.)
GalaX
(close enough?)
Yorktown
Zuni
