I liked that about Atlanta when I visited, it was super laid back.
Yeah... it's nice to leave and be in a chill place especially after all the hectic chaos around here.

If San Diego is considered a major US city, I nominate that city.

Kansas City...the most small town vibe I ever got from a bigger city and I mean that as a compliment.

Still not sure what people mean when they talk about a city’s “pace”.

How fast people move from point A to point B, the speed of the accents, the amount of events offered at any one time, the absolute density (urban, traffic, and pedestrian), the evolution of trends. Also, the climate has a small factor as hotter climates tend to have people moving slower compared to the cold that forces you to move along more quickly.

I'd imagine Phoenix and Dallas are also relatively laid back among major cities even though I've never been there.

I say Phoenix of the cities I've been to....has a very relaxed vibe. New Orleans probably also has a very slow pace if you consider it a large city.

For a major city in the South, ehm true south, I'd had to offer up New Orleans and Nashville, but Nashville is super popping so it might become more like Atlanta in very short order. Jacksonville is certainly a maybe, then Tampa (but not Orlando for sure, lol
Yeah the posters claiming Atlanta is the slowest paced major city really raised my eyebrow. Current day Atlanta is not slow paced at all. Try slow poking on 285 other than for traffic and see how well that goes in 2018.

You're right about one thing, you've never been here lol

20 years ago, it WAS slowpaced here. But now, you have to hustle your butt off just to make rent and other living expenses every month; I remember when it didn't use to be that way here
