Yes you did but again, that was later in the thread. I responded to your response to my initial post which didn't include your admission; therefore I didn't leave anything out.

I recommend Winston-Salem or Richmond. Durham is kind of meh for me. Charleston and Savannah are incredibly nice places if you can make it there, though.

Durham is cool; its downtown in particular has come a long way within the past couple of years. I've been impressed with what I've seen.

I agree completely although unfortunately the cost of living has largely caught up with the cool factor. Winston Salem offers much the same feel and is significantly less expensive with no real drop off in "things to do".

Downtown Durham is nowhere near as lively as Downtown Winston, however. Southpoint Mall in Durham is better than Hanes Mall in Winston, however.

I think downtown Durham is catching up; they are not standing still at all. But on the artistic factor, I think Durham and Winston-Salem have similar cachet. I'd put both ahead of Raleigh on that front.

Charleston, Savannah, Wilmington, and Nashville come to mind.

Regarding size, there's not many other cities that quality outside if maybe Louisville and Richmond.

But if I’m being honest, I didn’t realize how large Durham & Winston-Salem actually are
Raleigh proper is nearly the population of Durham and Winston-Salem combined. At over a million, Wake County is much more than Durham & Forsyth Counties combined. Then again, NC State is also larger than Duke and Wake Forest Combined. It's all relative.
That said, it's going to be impossible to find a significant city without a significant university presence relatively speaking.

If you don't mind going really far south, Miami has a pretty spectacular arts scene with Wynwood anchoring it daily and ArtBasel Miami Beach celebrating it in a big way on a yearly basis.
