I'm gonna sound like a homer again, but I have to pick Cleveland.

Since it used to be over twice as large as it is now, it still has all of the infrastructure, amenities, and entertainment for a population of 1 million. Even if you look at it from metro population though (2.1 million-2.9 million+) it still offers a lot for its size.

3 major sports teams and we have Lebron James and Shaq now, top rated public transit rapid/light rail lines system, top rated orchestra, second largest theater district in the country, many museums, Rock n Roll hall of fame, one of the largest library systems in the country, top rated hospitals including Cleveland Clinic (worldwide now), a great lake and many rivers along with everything that comes with that, beaches, four seasons, many different cultures and unique and ethnic areas and neighborhoods along with more integrated areas, top rated chefs and restaurants, good road/highway system. Some other things that are not far away are the NFL hall of fame in Canton and Cedar Point (#1 amusement park in the world) in Sandusky.

It's just that the crime, poverty, unemployment, and decay are hurting the city and all the great things are being overlooked.

I would also add my home, Charlotte. It's a great alternative to ATL.
I would also add Greenville, SC. Truly one of the best downtowns for a medium sized city without a tourist district or large university (Yes there is Furman but the presence DT is minimal).
