Probably all the nation's large cities are socially liberal including cities in socially conservative states [ie. Texas\ Georgia\ Utah]. But adding fiscal conservatism to social liberalism makes it harder to determine what city fits the description especially since most large cities are experiencing serious economic deficits.

Houston metro, clearly !
It's an area where people are very open-minded but fiscally conservative, it's one of the reason why I love this city and its suburbs

Definitely not Minnesota or Wisconsin. Outside Madison and a few neighborhoods in South Minneapolis, we're pretty much the exact opposite.

That's all Houston there. Would be perfect for one looking for that.

Colorado, Nevada, Alaska, Montana, Wyoming, Arizona, and all of the major Texas cities (ie Dallas/Ft. Worth, Houston, Austin, San Antonio) would fit that category.

Houston was the first city to elect a lesbian mayor if that tells you something.

Austin isn't fiscally conservative, it's full blown liberal. But I agree on Houston, and Dallas to a lesser extent.

Much of Colorado's front range excluding Colorado Springs, and Boulder.
