I agree, not all sprawl is bland tacky and ugly. A lot of sprawl is attractve and has decent or even nice architecture. Not all strip malls are rectangle strips of buildngs. I'm on my iPhone at school but when I get home I'll post pictures.

Its funny how people keep listing sunbelt cities. has anyone not seen the sprawl in the north. The strip malls and suburban homes up north are much more BLAND and ugly than the ones in the sunbelt.

I think the strip malls and suburban homes in the north and south are the same. I could be in a suburban NC home and it will look the same as a suburban NY home. Difference is that the suburban ticky tack development in the north is limited to the suburbs while in some of these sunbelt cities like Phoenix or Charlotte, you see it in the city limits.
