You posted this in General US, you'll need to be a bit more specific.

California
Colorado
Illinois
Michigan
Nebraska
New Hampshire
New York
North Carolina
Oklahoma
Oregon
Pennsylvania
Tennessee
Texas
Virginia
Washington

(according to Wiki).

The most widely known Tri-Cities is in Tennessee, with an airport which carries the same name. I would guess that's the Tri-Cities the OP is referring to. I would give the edge to Tri-Cities over Sioux Falls with climate along with it's reasonable geographic proximity to other populated areas. The Tri-Cities towns of Johnson City-Kingsport-Bristol have gone through a rough patch and hadn't recovered as quickly as some areas, but have improved considerably the past couple of years and are forecasted to see job growth in the 30%-35% range over the next decade.

That first link is to an article which quotes a publication from 2008. The second link is from August 2014.

For the entire year of 2014, the Johnson City metro area was the only one in Tennessee to lose jobs. Kingsport didn't fare much better. If someone is looking for jobs in Tennessee, referring them to the Tri Cities is not a very good idea.

Job growth in the metro areas

You can't escape the "cty vs city" subforum just by Putting the word "area" after the name of the city. Put your threads where they belong -- there is a reason why that subforum was created in the first place.
