The only places in the Midwest with decent systems are Chicago, Cleveland, and Minneapolis. Pittsburgh just outside the Midwest has a decent system too.

Any other city I'm forgetting??

I know that's why I'm looking at cities with at least 150-200k population. I've been doing a lot of research on the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, but I wanted to get some input from the forum.

I will rely on public transportation so that is my biggest concern. I've already started researching areas such as Minneapolis/St paul, Omaha, Ne, Oklahoma City and Indianapolis. So if anyone has a suggestion, please feel free to responde.

I have a college degree(political science plus graduate school but did not complete). Have exp in the shared services and logistics. I don't have kids and I'm single. Looking for areas with at least 100k + population.

Thanks.
Oklahoma City = not Midwest. It starts north of Oklahoma.

More importantly, to answer your question: IMHO, KC, Omaha, St. Louis, Indianapolis are all great towns. Can't go wrong with any of those.

Thanks to all who posted in the thread. You guys gave some excellent choices and I've already started doing research on them through this and other websites. I really like what I've about Omaha, Minneapolis and a couple of others.


Once again, thank you for all your feedback.

Agreed. Also, Buffalo and Rochester are in the same situation as Pittsburgh. THey are just outside of the Midwest's eastern border. As far as public transit goes, St. Louis has the Metrolink, though it can't even come close to competing with the L.
