I'll have to go with Lexington here. Both mid-sized border state cities noted for their premiere state university in them, with Lexington having a more traditional form of development including more of a skyline downtown, whereas Columbia has a lot more sprawl. But the deal breaker is proximity to larger cities, with Louisville just over an hour and Cincy just under 90 minutes, compared to two hours for KC and St. Louis from Columbia. A telecommuting job would be quite feasible in that situation for driving there two times a week. It's also closer to better mountains, a coast, as well as more cities for a weekend getaway. Lexington also had a decent regional airport, whereas the one in Columbia is tiny, not to mention that CVG and SDF aren't terribly far for the long haul flights. Columbia is just too "flyover country" IMO.

Dundalk, MD or Tonawanda, NY?

Even though I have a lot of family in Buffalo I'd like to live closer to, Tonawanda has never struck me as a particularly desirable place to live. Dundalk is more diverse, gets less snow, and is part of a larger metro area, while also being in great proximity to the water.

Dundalk for me.

Rock Springs, WY or Farmington, NM?

Orlando. I am biased but have to stick with the place I know. And Orlando would be adequate for me. Arizona would probably have to default to Phoenix for me to say yes.

Toledo, OH vs Baton Rouge, LA

Toledo. It has some nice intact neighborhoods close to downtown such as Old West End that are very nice. I am also a fan of the Great Lakes.

FAyetteville AR or Lincoln NE
