albuquerque is great- it is totally underrated imo. Low cost of living, ideal climate, lots of transplants. They even have some pretty active mommy groups there so you can meet people. I think it is very eclectic and the crime stats are blown way out of proportion based on the size of the city.

And you need to get out more often if you think St. Louis is fast-paced. LOL Compared to PHX, Las Vegas, NYC, Chicago, LA, Boston, DC, etc, etc, etc, St. Louis is a graveyard. In fact, I like going to St. Louis because it feels slow-paced (and because I like it in general too).
I will have to disagree with you on a couple cities. Phoenix and Las Vegas seemed laid back and chill compared to St. Louis. Now St. Louis isn't as fast paced as the other cities you mentioned. But it is compared to the interior west cities.

St. Louis is about as fast-paced as any other city in the Midwest generally besides the Twin Cities, Chicago, and Detroit. It's not super-fast like the other cities Spade mentions, but it's pace is relatively the same as other Midwestern cities its size...(Cleveland, Pittsburgh (yes I consider Pittsburgh Midwestern), Cincy).

If you are looking for a medium sized city with a high quality of life look no further than Madison, Wisconsin!
