Thank God, finally an interesting thread.

Spokane, WA
Oxford, MS
El Paso, TX
Lincoln, NE
Paducah, KY
Little Rock, AR
Harrisonburg, VA

Finally, I would totally consider Detroit. If the city put some major incentives in place, I would love to be part of its' renaissance.

I love the movie Juno. In it, I believe St. Cloud was presented as Yuppie Paradise.

In no particular order.....
Greensboro, NC
Knoxville, TN
Charlottesville, VA
Harrisburg, PA
Omaha, NE
Fargo, ND
Spokane, WA

All 7 are better areas in which to live than most people give them credit for.

I just remember the adoptive parents lived in St. Cloud, which was an amalgam of McMansions, West Elm and perfect hand towels.

I think Charlottesville is generally well-regarded, and deservedly so.
I agree with everything on your list. My mother, a native Southerner, encountered Spokane many years ago when she attended her husband's family reunion in Coeur d'Alene. She loved the profusion of beautifully manicured parks and how clean the city was. She said that she could happily live there.

Louisville KY
Richmond VA
Jacksonville FL
Phoenix AZ

Those are not the most popular cities on City-Data, but they are worlds above where I am currently living and think I could be happy in any of them. Out of the top 50, the only cities that would be no under any circumstance is OKC (if I didn't already live here), Detroit, Cleveland, or St Louis.

Just curious, but what is it about Detroit, Cleveland and St. Louis would make you say no to them? In a way, they fit the non trendy/unpopular criteria.

Curious you listed the 5th biggest city/12th biggest metro in the country in that list. While not LA or NY, Phoenix is at least two to three levels above those other 3
