My folks live in Norman. It is a great little city. I always find myself wandering around the area surrounding the University there. I love that Norman has the whole southern plains/western-ish live and let live vibe. It's not far at all from OKC either, although I like the feel of Norman better. Durham is another great city on the list and I could easily see myself living there as well.

I've had some interest in moving to Cedar Rapids, IA if I could find work. It's only a couple hours from where family lives and is cheaper than Illinois. Plus familiar climate, environment and mannerisms. Might be a teeny bit too small, though.

I used to have family that lived pretty close to there in Eufala, OK.

Cedar Rapids - "Best City for Cheapskates!" I love it. That's too funny, and pretty true, at least for me. I love having the University of Iowa within 25 minutes and being 3.5 hours from Chicago.

Cedar Rapids and Lincoln are the only cities that are not in the south on the list ... Lincoln is really just too far West for my preference - so I chose Cedar Rapids, not because I happen to live here.

Had you put, maybe, Milwaukee, Rockford, Toledo, Fort Wayne, I would have chose one of those most likely.

I gotta give it to Durham. With Duke right there, it's got a college town vibe going on.

I'm really surprised Denton didn't get more votes as North Texas seems to be an incredibly cheap place to live and a lot of people are continuing to move there.

Agreed. Denton is the hidden gem of the DFW metroplex. Kind of a mini-Austin, minus the high COL, elitist mentality, and uber-pretentiousness. Sort of like how Austin was before it got overhyped, but also it's own thing. Definitely my favorite part of the metroplex.

I doubt too many people outside of Texas even know about Denton.
