Because pros and cons are by and large subjective, and each individual pro and con will differ in magnitude depending on the person's preferences, it would be whichever city (to you) has the highest ratio of pros vs. cons.

Best places to live AND travel in USA are near airport hubs with cheap fares and carriers (Den, Chicago, Phx, LA, SF, JFK, Boston, Miami, Orlando, LV, Reno, SEA, ...)

I prefer places with LOTS of travel variety in close proximity. (and I don't due humidity, so...) The PNW works for me, as do Mtn States destinations within 1 hr of Airport. Logan UT or Colorado Springs is a great choice for Mtn people. SEA for ski and seafood (and 3 hrs to Vancouver BC). Prescott AZ if I needed something dry, warm, and high(er).

Best place has more to do with you, that with us... (I refuse to live in a county with stoplights... that could be real tough if you need public transit).

The best place depends on what is important to someone. If one doesn't like to drive then living in NYC is great place as there is great public transportation. If one prefers warm weather then living in Florida or Southern California are great options.
