Denver may be traditional by some stretch of the definition, but definitely not slow paced.

Columbus is pretty slow compared to any of the larger cities I've been to, though traffic can get nasty. Just avoid the 315-270 split and the Cleveland Ave exit during rush hour, and you should be OK.

Ft. Lauderdale still maintains a relatively slow life in comparison to its southern neighbor, Miami, but you['re right it's definitely grown over time and pace is picking up. I like the Tampa Bay area and Orlando, FL. But Ft. Lauderdale area is also nice. That suburb close by, Davie, is pretty neat with the western theme...the world's only drive through McDonald's using a horse carriage.

I agree. Columbus is rather sedate, but it's a nice town, and the nearby OSU adds life to it.

Well, depending on what part of DFW you live in, you can call it laid back or up tight. The Dallas side tends to be a busier, the Ft. Worth side more laid back.

But my point is that every city you can find a laid back atmosphere.

Sorry, I guess sedate is a relative term. I guess I was not comparing apple to apple...as if you compare columbus to the top 10 largest MSA's, it is sedate, but if you compare columbus to cities of similar size, one could argue that it's not as sedate. Example would be Columbus vs. let's say San Antonio. ONe could argue that Columbus maybe busier than San Antonio, our nation's 29th largest MSA.

I guess being from Dallas, Columbus feels rather sedate to me.
