I am looking to move to a state/city/region that is

Not absurdly high cost of living

Moderate politically

Conventional (e.g. I found living in Seattle a bit far out and didn't make many likeminded friends; I am liberal but not seattle liberal and I don't dress hipster-like. I am a blue jeans guy)

Has good public transport

Traditional feel (still diverse but the area doesn't feel atypical, not in a desert)

Not a big party city. I hate nightclubs but enjoy bars and sports bars

Sports teams and lots of them

Chicago would work. but the most urban areas are expensive. The city is very liberal, but not in the same way as Seattle. Public transport there is to die for IMO. It felt like a party city to me, but one could find their niche there easily enough. The sports team thing I don't need to answer, everybody knows.

I thought it was great. The only thing that sucks is getting out of the airport on it, and getting out of Cubs games on it (you ARE a sardine in a literal can in both instances). Other than that, I was absolutely impressed. Buses were readily available and mostly convenient as well.
