I'm one of these people. I grew up in the NYC metro, spent 8 years on and off in L.A. and now in Denver. Let me just say, you need to brace yourself for a smaller city when you do this. I can't even begin to explain what I mean by that.

I voted Tampa though - rapidly expanding metro, good weather, water-based outdoor activities, lot's of single women, good blend of East Coast and Midwest transplants, COL is lower than Denver. I could also see Austin being decent as well but it gives me more of a Denver vibe.

I feel the same as you, moving to Seattle felt like a big downgrade in diversity, urban areas, activity, and just underwhelming, but I get paid well here and so I find the nature out here is beautiful.

But is Buffalo even a third tier city, or 4th tier ?
On the flipside, it is a city where you could possibly afford to do just that. Perhaps Allentown, Elmwood Village near Buff State, around Hertel Ave or something like this in the Linwood area: https://buffalomanagementgroup.com/b...tt-apartments/ .
