Maybe, but outside of metro Atlanta just feels far away from everything.

Clarke County (Athens) touches metro Atlanta counties Barrow, Jackson, and Walton...and Macon's metro touches 3 Metro Atlanta counties as well. So those two are right next door to Atlanta...and both feel like younger siblings.

Actually Columbus touches Metro Atlanta also...I didn't realize that before I looked it up. Metro Atlanta isn't really that far from other cities. Athens, Macon, and Columbus are within an hour's drive of Downtown Atlanta. Chattanooga, Augusta, Greenville, and Birmingham are about 2 hours away. Charlotte, Asheville, Columbia, Knoxville, Huntsville, Nashville, and Montgomery are 3 hours or less from Atlanta.

If we were going by importance which most people are going by (who are arguing against me) than yea, DC would Come first. But it doesn't matter i guess. its called the Bal/Wash metro anyway, not the wash/bal metro.
Most of the time they are included in the same metros. True. However, the Washington metro is much larger than the Baltimore metro.

It's called the Bos-Wash corridor not the Bos-Bal.

I will admit you have a point and I think Deacon said it best when he said they're something like fraternal twins.

You're right, It is called the Bos-Wash corridor you should get a golden star (how does that deal with anything we are talking about?)

Maybe that is a good way of putting

Yes, but within that metro there are two separate metros. (Washington-Arlington-Alexandria and the Baltimore-Towson) They are just generally included as part of a larger one though.

Right! My point is if Baltimore is the big brother/sister in the picture, then shouldn't it be the Bos-Bal corridor? How does "Wash" steal that spot? Just pointing out an incongruity here. Think outside the box. Moderator cut: off-topic I should have two golden stars.

Maybe. Maybe not.

Wow some people are not the brightest tool in the shed. Ya know, the elevator doesn't exactly reach the top floor. The Reason it is Bos-Wash and not Bos-Bal is because the highest city in the whole string is Boston and the lowest city in the string is DC. Is it really that hard to understand?
You deserve no stars for not fully even understanding the term Bal-wash and why it's called that

And im a woman anyway. Lets get a ban soon though for you!
