@murksiderock I love Richmond's neighborhoods and architecture as and individual city I like RVA a little more but as an entire metro area I would choose HR.

Norfolk has a higher population than Richmond and also Norfolk is the most urban city in the Hampton Roads with Va Beach at a close 2nd. Richmond is not that much more urban than Norfolk, the Norfolk lifestyle is just a little bit slower than Richmond. I don't want to say Norfolk is stuggling when it comes to money but I think Richmond got more funds than Norfolk also. Norfolk is a big ghetto with the eceptions of a few good spots and redevelopment. Richmond is more urban but not by that much. Trust me Norfolk has neighboring cities while Richmond is basically on a island of its own but if Norfolk and Richmond was beside eachother you would see theres not that much of a difference when it comes to being urban.

You're basing this off the fact that Norfolk has sizable neighboring cities and Richmond doesn't?

If they were side by side, Richmond would still feel larger and more urban, because Richmond has the larger downtown (by far), and the bigger street scene/buzz and pedestrian activity within its neighborhoods. Even if they were side by side, you'd notice and think you were going into a larger city if you were going from Norfolk to Richmond---kinda like how it feels going to Norfolk from Chesapeake or Portsmouth....

Richmond is more urban than Norfolk, pretty noticeably so, in some pretty significant ways...

I guess that depends on who you ask. Richmond is more urban than HR, but HR is more spread out so it is only natural that it would be more suburban. At the same time both areas are changing so go figure.
