Suprised to hear you say that. I just spent a few days in Savannah. It has a very cool, walkable and historic city center. I just checked walk score and the central city of Savannah is 90, walkers paradise. As a historian you ought to look into Savannah. I believe it has the best preserved large city center in the country. Very walkable with parks spaced every 2 blocks. Night life is incredible, there is no open container law in Savannah, so you walk outside with a drink which is a big deal to me. One of the largest gay scenes in the South as well.

Outside the core it is very suburban but so is Sacramento.

Wait so Sacramento is less segregated than LA, San Diego, San Francisco, Oakland, and Fresno? Thanks for confirming.
