Underated- Going to have to go with Columbus on this one. What other metro in the US has 2 miilion people, 2 proffesional sports teams, 6 fortune 500 comapnies, one of the best rated zoos, one of the largest universtities, consistent growth and yet when you mention you live in Columbus people stop and stare at you racking their brain... hmm you mean Columbus Ohio??? umm yeah.

I suppose Paris, Rome or Florence are uninteresting backwaters, then.

I've read people say on here that Paris needs more skyscrapers to "better fit its size"

Some people on here are just downright silly.

Cincinnati, Nashville (CSA approaching 2 million), Charlotte (sans zoo), Cleveland (sans growth), Kansas City (sans two Fortune 500s). And yes Columbus is underrated, but that's quickly changing.

Yes - they are.

Just because it's an inch below the line doesn't mean it's the South.

Cincinnati and St. Louis must be Southern too then.

I lived in Chicago all my life until recently after college moved to Austin, Tx so there may be some bias in my list..

Overrated:

Milwaukee
Indianapolis
St.Louis
Baltimore
Washington Dc

Underrated:

Pittsburgh
Minneapolis
Chicago *its overrated in some aspects, and underrated in others* The food is unbeatable, the city is world class and the city offers so much. But at the same time there is way too much crime, weather sucks, and it isnt cheap (most likely end up house broke unless you want to live in an undesirable community)
