Some criteria to help you decide is which of these cities has a good quality of life, which has a good cost of living, which has less of a rat race, and which has less traffic or good traffic for its size?

Yes
Atlanta, GA- A place that has always intrigued me. Lots of urban infill and a progressive core, solid economy.

Madison, WI- Great bar scene, not far from Chicago, beautiful lakeside location, good for the industry I am in

Columbus, OH- Rapidly developing, high concentration of young professionals, progressive and it's where a lot of my friends reside

Philly, PA- Beautiful leafy suburbs, intact historic core, variety of ethnic food, urban amenities without being as large, costly or overwhelming as New York


Maybe
St. Paul, MN
Fort Lauderdale, FL
St. Pete, FL
Minneapolis, MN
New Orleans, LA
Raleigh-Durham, NC
Omaha, NE
Louisville, KY
Annapolis, MD


No

Palm Springs, CA
St. Augustine, FL
Sarasota, FL
Dunedin, FL
Greeneville, SC
Charleston, SC
Savannah, GA
Woodlands, TX
Salem, MA
Portland, ME
Fayetteville, AR
Providence, RI
Charlottesville, VA
Portsmouth, NH
Burlington, VT
Salem, MA
Astoria, OR

Charleston is by far my favorite of these cities, so I gave it my vote. The only major disadvantage its concert shortage, and that is the main reason why I don't live there. It's seriously one of the greatest cities on the planet, though! Philadelphia rules, too. Of course, Raleigh and Columbus deserve some acknowledgement since they are both prosperous cities for young singles looking for their next career move. Btw, "I Come in Peace" is by far Dolph Lundgren's best movie!!

Chose Minneapolis, over St. Paul.

Philadelphia and Annapolis were the only other cities I considered.
