As I suspected, Durham by a mile. It's vastly underrated in my opinion given how nice it is in terms of quality of life versus cost.

None of those cities are complete wastelands, they all include some very nice areas that can be surprisingly expensive. Educate yourself.

Cincinnati, OH
You could and STL and KC among others, but I'm not sure this is what the OP had in mind with his list.

Austin TX area is super liberal socially. Austin TX is more politically liberal than ever.. it gets a lot of California and NY transplants and the cost of living is pretty low in Texas compared to the Coasts. Austin is a great city but its getting a bit too overcrowded because everyone knows how great it is now.

Those cities are not my favorite but then again I don't like really cold weather. Not a huge fan of Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Cincinnati and Buffalo and even Detroit shockingly. It gets cold enough here in Kentucky. I like moderate weather like California. I do like the change in seasons but winter gets annoying after a while and so does summer. I like temps in the 60s to 80s most of the time. Dammit why does California have to be so expensive to live in.

I was about to post the same thing. Iowa has voted for the Democrat candidate for six of the past seven elections.

Round Rock has terrible traffic problems, and not just during rush hour. The city has grown faster than roads and planning could keep up. Rush hour is awful but you can run into problems at off hours and on weekends as well. The intersection area on I-35 with the toll road (45) regularly turns into a cluster****.

Of course it's not a red state. One of the reasons I like Iowa and it's people.
