If Charleston is on the list, Savannah should also be. I love my city. However, from the cities listed above, I would, without a doubt, have to say Miami. I LOVE the culture down there! Especially the lovely latinas!

The south wouldn't have it.

Also, it's actually spelled Philadelphia.

Interesting that Nashville has the edge right now. Glad to see people showing appreciation for this great city.

Personally, I wish Savannah was added to this poll, that's a small city which has always intrigued me, but need to do more research on. Asheville and Knoxville too, if only to see what the interest on those cities were vs. other ones. (though I sense the former would do well on this)

Still, I was surprised the OP did a better job than I thought on choosing a decent variety of southern cities for this poll.

I agree with Savannah, I would have chosen it as well.

Not Miami - I like visiting, but it's too far away from other non-Florida things.

I'd be ok with Raleigh - I lived in NC as a young kid, NC still feels familiar to me and I like the variety of the state.

Nashville because - well, don't really know, I've never been. Anyplace in the South could potentially annoy me with excessive religiosity, and I'm sure Nashville is not immune. But the music culture might make up for it - even though I'm not a big Country fan, I appreciate good music.

Charlotte seemed really boring when I went there over 10 years ago - like the suburbs of Northern Virginia, spread out and anti-urban. But it looks interesting now downtown.

I'd love to visit New Orleans and Memphis, but don't think I'd want to live there.

Those are great cities, although I generally prefer towns or cities on the smaller side. From that list, I would choose New Orleans or Charleston.

If I had more options, I'd look toward Lafayette, Savannah, Knoxville, and maybe Bowling Green.

Best Southern City to Move to
Yeah, it is quite difficult to pick up an entire city and move it somewhere.

That being said, my newfound passion is sailing, and Birmingham is 300 miles away from the ocean. So Charleston is my choice.
