Yes, Austin has more people within its municipal boundaries than Atlanta does. By any other measure, Atlanta is unquestionably the larger of the two.

This person does not like atlanta at all for him to have never been to atl he doesnt like and he is going to make it known thru this forum.So i am glad its just his opinion. Because as we know over 5 million people choose atlanta as its home so one guy not liking atlanta doesnt hurt evidentally people like atlanta thats the reason its growing and growing i have nothing against niether one i like atlanta because its great place for me to one day open my own barbershop. I see alot of black wealthy people here and that inspires me. Back home in miami you dont see that much.

The Austin/San Antonio region is one of the most beautiful and fastest growing areas in America. I see it as the next mega CSA. Two cities in the region are in the top fastest growing cities in the area. All Georgia has is Atlanta. It is so nice to live in a state where cities hcna share the wealth and not dependent on one city to carry the load. For Instance if all major cities were combined in the Austin area the pop. would be 18 million people. Austin would be the dominant city in the state with a diverse pop and culture un matched in the south.

It's funny how Texans are always Sooo impressed by the fact their state has multiple large cities. Hell, you live in a state the size of Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida and Tennessee combined. It would be amazing if you didn't have several large metro areas. In that same land area we have Atlanta, Miami, Tampa-St Pete, Jacksonville, Orlando, Nashville, Charlotte, Raleigh-Durham, Memphis, and Charleston.

Hey those Atlantans are just so crazy about thier city which ares encompasses two states to get thier pop. Sorry kiddo, Georgia will never be on the same plane as Texas or Florida. You Georgian better watch your neighbor NC is starting to kick your butt too. Savannah and Athens are pretty cool though.

Well geesh, look at how friggin' BIG Texas is. It used to be a separate republic for goodness sake. It would be surprising if it DIDN'T have several large cities/metro areas.

Really? I thought the hilly suburbs to the west felt very "Californian".

Nope. Don't have to cover two states to blow Austin away population wise. For instance Dekalb county (just one of Atlanta's five main suburban counties) is about the same size as Austin with 737,000 pop in 268 square miles compared to Austins 743,000 in 251 square miles. I mean come on. All of Travis county only has 974,000 sprawled out over a whopping 989 square miles. Atlanta's Fulton county alone has 992,000 squeezed into only 529 square miles.

Even if you threw in San Antonio with Austin it doesn't compare to metro Atlanta which has more people living in a smaller area than both those metros combined. Despite Atlanta's reputation for sprawl all of Texas metros (with the exception of Houston) are actually more sprawling when it comes to population density.

Sorry Charlie, don't show your big penis envy when it comes to city. Austin/San Antonio is in the Southwest parts in the desert and part plains/part hill country. Atlanta is just 35 county metro or something like that but still doesn't have the cool vibe as Austin
