From your experience, which cities in the U.S. have a reasonable COL (especially as it relates to housing) combined with a strong job market?

Omaha and des moines are two that are always rated in the top ten for standard of living. A combination of salary and cost of living.

That is true and I agree. We had a debate about this article in the NY forum about this actually. Criteria is something to consider when reading these lists.

That list is for metro areas within the top 50 for population size. Basically, odds are that the 25th best on that list is 190th best if you account for all metro areas.
