I remember relocating from Memphis to Chicago and everyone and everything seemed so fast paced. The work ethic was crazy. I could see it in the malls and work place. The city just seemed very efficient especially when it came to business.

Driving fast isn't an indicator all the time. People drive fast in Memphis, Atlanta and Nashville. That seemed to be an indicator of driving conditions with longer blocks and other things more so then fast paced living.

Not.
DC has awful traffic, as does Atlanta. But so does every major city and a smaller city like Austin's probably has worse traffic than larger cities, does not mean it's more fast paced or bustling.

I"d say:

Top 10 US metros:

Atlanta
Houston not far behind

Top 10-20 US metros:

Denver

Outside of Top 20 US metros:

Orlando
Memphis
Raleigh-Durham
Birmingham

Definitely southern and south central/west are less hustle and bustle overall, than the northeastern and midwestern cities.

Sprawl is bad for the environment and not something to be proud of.

It appears that other posters understand what I was saying, and are agreeing.

Just this week two Embassies threw huge seperate Galas, just think about how many that is in a year The largest student walkout to protest guns just occurred here as well, I'm sure you saw all of the shoes laid out on the lawn somewhere in the news or social media. This week we also have the annual cherry blossom festival which is nationlly famous and the March For Our Lives protest on Saturday. There are major events that occur here all time, it's just not Hollywood related.
I don't doubt it. I would think that DC has that kind of atmosphere to some degree as well. Outside of the rallies, and festivals, it feels as thought you have to be "plugged-in" to have access to many events in DC.

Not really. Celebrities/parties/events are far more accessible in Atlanta than Politicians/Events are in DC aside from protests and other demonstrations.
