Nashville from the ones you had to choose from. Charleston and Savannah have more character than any of the ones you had listed. They are unmistakeably Southern and full of the flavor of the coast and the history of their region. Nashville is a country music flavored town in every way.

out of all these cities, milwaukee reached the largest population the earliest, thereby creating a more authentic urban character. its early status as an industrial and brewing city attracted immigrants and settlers from all over the world, who lived in concentrated, dense urban neighborhoods. the other cities did not develop the same way. milwaukee runs away with this one easily.

Actually, Minneapolis and St. Paul combined have historically been larger than Milwaukee since the late 1800s. (they function, in some ways as one large city, even though they are quite different).

Mpls and St. Paul have been culturally dominated by immigrant ethnic groups, some of which are uncommon elsewhere (Scandinavians), drawn by work in the mills...some of which still are huge names: General Mills, Pillsbury, etc.

I'd still say Milwaukee has the most distinct character, though.
