Only cities I consider major across all metrics- NY, LA, Chicago, DC, San Francisco, DFW, Miami, Atlanta, Boston, Philadelphia, Houston.

Of those cities I would say Houston is the least fast paced.

However, just to clarify Houston on a dead day is still probably busier and rushy than a large or midsize city at rush hour.

Phoenix and Houston. Atlanta is fast paced in some parts of the city like Midtown and Downtown but not like major East Coast cities but not as laid back as Western cities.

Phoenix is not laid back anymore; it's not New York City, but it isn't laid back anymore either

Houston is fast-paced on the freeway system, no doubt. But get downtown, and it is "s-l-o-w and g-o".

I thought Atlanta to be similar, fast paced on the freeway, slow-paced in-city.

Atlanta isnít slow paced. Itís a faster paced city than some other cities that have higher populations.

Maybe some of the sprawl might make it seem slow paced but a quick drive on the highways bring me to reality quickly!

Dallas is anything but laid back. It's not as fast-paced or stick-up-your-butt as NYC, but you'll get the stink eye from your boss if you're in after 8 or out before 4:30.

haha. The only pace demonstrated here is the pace to the unemployment office.
