Milwaukee or Madison? I don't know what "booming" means. But cities in the south are generally growing more than ones in the northeast and midwest (where they have four seasons). Maybe Portland, Oregon or Seattle?

Houston is booming more than just about any other city but it's not way over-priced like NYC, Boston, LA and those other ripoff cities. Houston is the best!!!

True but you can't beat Houston for low cost of living and booming economy.

If you throw in contractors and government-related jobs that still only rises to 38%. If I were younger, single and looking to make some bucks/advance in the work place, I would most certainly take a hard look at the DC area.

Uh, I don't think anyone overlooks DC, lol. Maybe on the CD forums here and there, but many parts of this forum are what I would consider to be a wildly successful study in the ways of "group think."

Actually Denver is booming at the moment and it is pretty livable with a lot of amenities (such as an extensive bike path system). However the cost of living increased substantially compared with how it was previously.
