There in the South. LOL, these cities don't really have much in common. Charleston compares to Savannah (for it historical architecture), and is not much older than Mobile or Augusta (though, most of the city's historical significance were burned to the ground). Pretty much all of the city's job markets are stagnant (Maybe not Chattanooga, since Volkswagen plans to build a plant there). Some of these cities have a dismantled government (hence Mobile, Macon, Augusta, Columbus). The shopping varies. Charleston has alot more of an upscale variety of retail (Gucci, Saks Fifth Avenue, Tommy Bahama's, Lacoste, the list goes on), while Athens emphasizes more locally owned stores.

OK.. this is really comparing apples to oranges..
Disgusta, Macon, Columbia, Chattanooga, and Columbus are fair comparisons

Charleston, Savannah, and Mobile are all coastal port cities... fair comparisons

Tallahasee and Athens are both college towns.. not so comparable but close enough..

I remember what Chatanooga was like in the early to mid 80s.. what they have done to turn that city around in the last 20 years is nothing short of miraculous.

Yeah. VW decided a week or two ago. You should look at what Greenville used to look like 20 years ago. Hyatt came in and changed everything.
