That's correct. I live right next to Orlando, but since no one knows where Oviedo is, I always tell them Orlando.

Hmm, hard to know which suburbs (eg Frisco, a part of Dallas-Fort Worth) count as answers here, and which get absorbed into larger cities' answers.

I tried Arlington, don't know if I've ever heard of Frisco. I remembered that Arlington is on the 50 and 100 biggest US cities quiz that I took somewhere.

The fact that Frisco is considered a suburb of Dallas now really shocked my Dad when he was helping me look for an apartment in the area. He grew up in a (no longer) small town a ways west of there but moved away 30 years ago. From his perspective the area suddenly went from spread out teeny towns to HOUSES EVERYWHERE!

As FreeStateBear said, San Jose is here. However, a poll came out today suggesting that nearly 50% of San Francisco residents hope to move away within a few years. Though there are alot of opportunities there, the housing bubble is pushing people away.

It is interesting to me that Texas and California cities make up half of the top twenty. Also, North Carolina has two cities on the list.

Raleigh and Charlotte were no brainers for me (since I live in NC). Both have grown like crazy and continue to do so. They aren't attracting retirees so much as well-educated high earners looking for jobs in high-tech (Raleigh) and banking/industry (Charlotte).

The official name of New York CIty is City of New York. And when sending mail you just put New York, NY. I don't think you could send mail by putting Oklahoma, OK.

According to Google it's grown by about 30k between 2000 and 2017. Which is a big change (about 6% growth) but not top-of-the-list.
