Wow...I'm sure there are places like that but, Atlanta issnt one of them. You have to go at least 30 miles before you get into farmland areas. But like I said even in Charlotte you drive for 5miles or about 10 mins and you are in farmland.

With an exception of the west side along I-20.

San Antonio's suburbs stretch further from the W, NW, NC and NE of the downtown area.

Have you been here before? You can drive up to 45 mins in either direction from the city center and not be in rural area. Beyond that of course it gets rural...every state has rural areas. So to say its gets rural fast in Atlanta is completely absurd!!

You must have meant Charlotte where you can be in vast farmland just 10 mins from their city center????
<45 minutes west on I-20 (barring the ever present accident) gets you rural quite fast.

New Orleans is unique because the central urbanized area is basically an island, and then there are exurbs that require a "hop" over water features. The inner suburbs stop about 10-15 miles from downtown but then you have exurbs another 25-30 miles out.
