Asbury Park will probably turn into one of these sometime in the next decade, the crime is already lowering each year.

This is a great post!! Sacramento California really should be a hot spot than is is but is kind of lost in the mix after LA and San Fran varied climate, close to the ocean and the mountains, diverse population. Richmond and Nashville could be contenders... Richmond still has that gritty feel somewhat, it is curious that it hasn't grown like virtually every other city around it, and was actually quite a bit larger in the 70's and 80's. Nashville absolutely could be a hot spot, but for now is somewhate overlooked for Atlanta/Charlotte/Raleigh it's country heritage could be it's blessing and curse, people just arent aware there is more there than country music, also landlocked and will absoulutely lose to the states with water at the edge, Most notably GA and NC, but at least the mountains are close, Nashville is poised to grow.

If I had to bet I agree that Pittsburgh is due for a population run (As long as potential new residents don't mind harsher winters) And I co-sign that Oklahoma city is more than it would seem. But maybe it's too close to DFW, and we'll always be kind of overlooked?

Sacramento, OKC, and Nashville and Pittsburgh are my final answers.

I don't know that Pittsburgh will produce a company as large or as influential as Microsoft, or put its signature on rock music the way Seattle has, but I do agree that the vibe in Pittsburgh has become markedly more positive in recent years.
Personally, I've never visited, but I have heard the hype. But just for the sake of counter-argument, read this guy's post on Pittsburgh:

Granted, he's comparing it to Providence, but still some interesting insights. Enough to scare me away... At least until I can see it for myself.

By foreigners, I guess you're using a cute term for people from other parts of the country, right?
