I will admit I've only been as far as NC and haven't spent any time downtown in the bigger cities in the south. Still, I was along the coast in NC/SC kind of carolina beach/myrtle beach area last year and it was ok enough. Palm trees made me pretty happy, haha. But not sure how the music/art scene there compares to southern new england. I'm also not very religious, conservative or family oriented, which I do associate with the southern states.
You need to visit to get over those misconceptions. Places like Asheville, Durham and Chapel Hill in NC, Charlottesville VA, Athens GA and Chattanooga TN are in step with what you're looking for. If you need a large city for whatever reason, Atlanta has many hip neighborhoods that would fulfill your wish list also.

In Pittsburgh? I thought the overall COL was around the national average and what about areas of the city like Oakland, around Carson and Bloomfield, among others?

It's cheap, relative to the rest of the nation: RankedModerator cut: link removed, linking to competitor sites is not allowed#24(out of 100) in this article.

I don't care what the articles say because most of them are outdated. There is an entire thread dedicated to the cost of rent in the Pittsburgh forum.

Rent starts at over $1000 for a decent sized one bedroom in the good areas. Pittsburgh has become trendy.
