Nestled at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, the city besides being rated as an alpha-city, takes pride in having one of the most extensive covers of greenery among US cities. Home to some of the most recognizable brands like the Coca Cola and CNN, the city has moved from strength to strength, becoming one of the foremost global economic powerhouses.
