I think the people in the San Antonio, TX forum would probably say they have a big city with a slower pace and small town feel.

I said yes, but you have to characterize it. Large metro areas do have sections within them that are like small towns with a much slower pace.

Pittsburgh, PA is rather slow-paced. Oklahoma City, OK didn't seem on high speed, either.

Probably others that run on slow-moe!

Phoenix-- the roads are certainly not slow paced, but everything else is.

Burlington, Vt and Tampa, Fl are still relatively tame.
