Have you checked out employment at Ellsworth Air Force Base in Rapid City? Also, do a search on the Black Hills. I think you'll be extremely surprised at their beauty. The western part of So. Dak. is not flat. Harney Peak in the Hills is the highest point east of the Rockies.

If you're not interested, it's fine, but I thought you may want to at least check into it.

Other than that, please share the ups and downs of the Twin Cities, Milwaukee, and Chicago and Cincy Fishtacos. These are four that I may be calling home sometime in the future and would appreciate feedback from someone like you who has lived there. Which of these cities besides Chicago would be a good place for an aerospace engineer to reside? Ohio and Illinois are states I am looking at because of the aviation opportunities they have...Chicago is where Boeing is now headquartered. Which Midwestern cities would have something to offer for engineers in the fields of aviation besides Chicago and St. Louis? I have been looking at Detroit, Indy, Cleveland, Columbus, Cincy, KC, the Twin Cities, Milwaukee, and Chicago as places to possibly move to. Dayton in particular has captured my attention.
I'll stick to whatever I want thanks.

The Black Hills are gorgeous. They are one of my favorite places anywhere.

What does Iowa have to offer? Just curious because the state is never talked about much. How do areas like Des Moines and Cedar Rapids compare to places like Madison, Duluth, and Green Bay? In addition, I'm also interested in how Columbia (Missouri), St. Joseph, Hannibal, Jefferson City, Springfield (Illinois), Champaign Illinois, Effingham, and Terre Haute compare to each other. Just thought I might take some rural areas in states of the Lower Midwest to compare to each other. I was born and raised in a big city and still live in one so I don't know what rural life in the lower Midwest is generally like or how different ones in different states compare to each other.

Best Midwestern States to Live In:

(1) Illinois - Chicago, Chicago, Chicago, and more Chicago. This is the only place that I'd personally live full-time, but if you're not into big city...

(2) Michigan (Western part of the state but NOT Detroit) - The western coast along Lake Michigan is about as gorgeous as you can get in terms of natural beauty in the Midwest.

(3) Wisconsin - Door County is spectacular while Madison is the Midwest's best smaller city (even as an Illini fan).

(4) Minnesota - Minneapolis is a nice city with access to the great natural resources of the state.

I've been to most but not all of those states, although I haven't spent a ton of time in any of them. The only one I would live in is Missouri (and I am moving there in a week and a half!). If Arkansas were on the list, that would be my #2 choice. I guess Arkansas must be considered part of the south.

Arkansas is indeed part of the South, more specifically the Upper South. Kentucky, Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Arkansas all form part of the region known as the Upper South. I'm not sure if South Carolina is officially considered the Deep South or Upper South, I'm pretty certain it is probably the Deep South.
