I'm not a big fan of any of those cities, but Raleigh is closest to the beach. Plus, as far as Sunbelt boomtowns go, it's not a bad place as long as you stick to the city proper and avoid the sprawling suburbs. Being home to a large state university helps. I suppose that means I'd probably choose Austin next.

It's fine. don't make a stink about it. I'm sure it'll pick up a bit, and even if it doesn't a whole lot it's still okay, at least people are being civil so far.

I chose Omaha, (duh!) and Austin. I've never been but hear a lot of good about it. I've never heard of Appleton, so maybe someone can fill me in?

Appleton is a town of about 75,000. It is pretty close to Madison, Milwaukee, and Green Bay. It is a very family-friendly city, with good schools. 3 Major companies have headquarters in the city.

Pittsburgh is beating Austin in a city-data poll. All is right with the world.

Why wouldn't it? Austin, and Texas in general, are nice places to live and visit, but people in these areas beat their chests a bit too much on this forum, especially one particular forumer from Houston who shall remain nameless.

1. Austin, TX (thriving economy, liberal population, friendly people)

2. Pittsburgh (cute city, good vibe...but unfortunately a struggling economy)

3. Omaha (not my cup of tea, but it seems like a nice place for families!)
3. Raleigh (not my cup of tea either, but the economy is quite good)

5. Appleton (WI is my homestate, but Appleton is far too conservative for me)
