1. I would love to live/work/play in downtown Chicago. Huge city so much to do. Good for biking and walking, with great transportation to airports, sport stadiums, etc.

2. Minneapolis-St. Paul. Great stable economy with loads of job oppurtunites. Very walkable and liveable. The hard part would be the winter.

3. KC, it's home...

4. St. Louis

5. Columbus, the largest college town.

1. Chicago - just a wonderful city all around. Also, hot dogs. :P
2. MSP - grew up there; will always be one of my favorite places.
3. Cincinnati - like the city and love the proximity to Indianapolis, Louisville, Columbus, and further out, Chicago, Cleveland, and Pittsburgh.
4. Des Moines - home...
5. Kansas City - very underrated city with a lot going for it, I think.

Runners-up: Milwaukee, Indianapolis, Madison, Duluth, St. Louis, Cleveland

1. Cincinnati: Home sweet home.

2. Grand Rapids: I love Michigan and it seems to be better off than the other Michigan cities.

3. St. Louis: Setting my hatred of the Cardinals aside, think its an interesting city, great architecture, and similar to Cincy? Never been there but I hope to.

4. Chicago: It's really too big for me but I've never been NW of Chicago and I don't really know if i'd like Wisco or Minnesota, though I am Norwegian so who knows. Lots of friends in the area as well.

5. Indianapolis: Know a lot of people from here going to IU, don't like the Colts but kind of reminds me of Cincy with the big Catholic schools

*If I could really pick anywhere that's technically a city, it would be Petoskey, MI. It's my favorite town/city in the United States. Absolutely beautiful
