Nope. Atlanta and Philly are nice. I like Philly especially. But they are not at the level of D.C.

I was born and raised in Baltimore City and County, but grew up in the DC area. I like both cities for different reasons but would rather reside in the DC area which is where I'm currently living in. Baltimore Suburbs is a nice area. As for the cities, I wouldn't live in either but DC would come close. However, the Grand Prix this weekend was the best time I ever had in Baltimore (and I'm a big gearhead). IMO, this event made Baltimore City such a nice place to be. There were parties in the boats, restaurants, hotels... it felt so vibrant.

I think D.C. is overall better than Philly or Atlanta because there are more things to see and do in D.C. And the city's attractions are better, IMO.

For visiting: DC. For living: Baltimore. DC has fantastic public transit; probably one of the best systems in the country. DC also has a ton of free museums and lots of shopping opportunities. DC is very expensive and owning a car adds to the trouble with parking and ugly traffic.
Baltimore has some great neighborhoods that are more affordable and linked by pretty good walking. It has a lot more retail than it did a few years ago. Although not having as many museums as DC, it does have my favorite in the area: The Visionary Art Museum. It has better waterfront access and enjoyment. A home in one of Baltimore's better neighorhoods is equal in cost to a studio apartment in DC.

The difference is functionality...u may think bmore is better cool but is it really functioning at an optimal level from a management perspective...

I think you need a 3rd selection for neither. Just my opinion.
