I'd move to Cheyenne, Laramie, or Rapid City. That's about it.

The outer suburbs (gasp!) or small towns outside a city. Inner city life isn't all it's cracked up to be.

Parts of WV are completely underrated.

Yes, I am. Never thought I would say it but I would rather live in a cookie cutter suburb or small town. None of the negatives of living in the city core but with all the perks.

You could also find suburbs with some walkability outside of the city core in some areas as well.

To answer the original question--I would consider places like Minneapolis, Albany, Portland ME, and while they are all nice, I don't think that anyone would consider them to be glamerous..

I definitely wouldn't consider Minneapolis underrated. Seems to be becoming a very popular city for millennials of all types.
