The Biggest City in Every State

The Biggest City in Every State

For those who prefer a bigger town

istockphoto.com

Each of these cities is the largest in its state, making for more food and entertainment options

Going “off the beaten path” is a popular endeavor among many travelers. We seek out the smallest town in a state to discover its charm and sense of community or look for undiscovered beauty in the towns deemed the prettiest. Smaller towns and more remote areas may hold some of the best food and drink in the country, as well as attractions that haven’t been totally overrun by tourists. There’s something to be said, however, for the big city in all of its bustling, fast-moving glory.

The Biggest City in Every State

With a bigger population comes more options and more variety in food, drink, culture, and entertainment. That’s why you’ll often find that the best restaurant scene or the most prolific artistic community in a given state may be located in its largest metropolis. More often than not, you’ll find a state’s best Italian cuisine or its top Chinese food in its biggest city. While cities are known for their expensive dining options, they also tend to have many more affordable alternatives as well due to demand and competition. Entrepreneurs of all stripes flock to cities where they have a bigger audience to see, taste, feel, or otherwise enjoy their business or creative endeavors. As a result, you won’t run out of things to do for a while, if ever.

It should be noted, however, that — given that some states are less dense in population — not all “big cities” are created equal. In fact, the smallest big city on this list has a population of approximately just 43,000! If you’re the type to thrive in an urban setting or simply look for a destination where you have plenty of options relative to the rest of the region, consider taking a trip to the biggest city in every state.

Note 1: The only incorporated place in Hawaii is the City & County of Honolulu. A portion of it, the Honolulu District, is sometimes called the "city of Honolulu" for statistical reasons, although it has no government separate from that of the "City and County" as a whole. The U.S. Census Bureau defines Honolulu CDP (Census Designated Place) as the Honolulu District. For Hawaii, the largest CDPs are listed.

Note 2: As of June 2013, New Orleans remains at a population of 343,829 (according to the 2010 Census) still showing a long term decrease since Hurricane Katrina, which initially decreased the population of the city by about 50%. Many of the city's residents were displaced during the storm and it is still unknown how many will return or can be considered "displaced". Despite previous claims that with the 2010 Census New Orleans will move down in the rankings, it still remains the largest city in Louisiana by a margin of more than 100,000. [3]

Note 1: The only incorporated place in Hawaii is the City & County of Honolulu. A portion of it, the Honolulu District, is sometimes called the "city of Honolulu" for statistical reasons, although it has no government separate from that of the "City and County" as a whole. The U.S. Census Bureau defines Honolulu CDP (Census Designated Place) as the Honolulu District. For Hawaii, the largest CDPs are listed.

Note 2: As of June 2013, New Orleans remains at a population of 343,829 (according to the 2010 Census) still showing a long term decrease since Hurricane Katrina, which initially decreased the population of the city by about 50%. Many of the city's residents were displaced during the storm and it is still unknown how many will return or can be considered "displaced". Despite previous claims that with the 2010 Census New Orleans will move down in the rankings, it still remains the largest city in Louisiana by a margin of more than 100,000. [3]

Note 1: The only incorporated place in Hawaii is the City & County of Honolulu. A portion of it, the Honolulu District, is sometimes called the "city of Honolulu" for statistical reasons, although it has no government separate from that of the "City and County" as a whole. The U.S. Census Bureau defines Honolulu CDP (Census Designated Place) as the Honolulu District. For Hawaii, the largest CDPs are listed.

Note 2: As of June 2013, New Orleans remains at a population of 343,829 (according to the 2010 Census) still showing a long term decrease since Hurricane Katrina, which initially decreased the population of the city by about 50%. Many of the city's residents were displaced during the storm and it is still unknown how many will return or can be considered "displaced". Despite previous claims that with the 2010 Census New Orleans will move down in the rankings, it still remains the largest city in Louisiana by a margin of more than 100,000. [3]
