I thought that the OP wanted a smaller or even mid sized city/area.

I was thinking more like Lake Jackson, or Outer Conroe.

I wouldn't call Republican voters in Georgia and Texas "moderate conservatives."

Suburban Philadelphia has a lot of what you might call "moderate conservatives." But the region (and the Northeast in general) is far more steeped in ethnic identity than metros out West.

"Conservatism" is becoming a harder thing to define nowadays as the 2016 Election is making clear. There is obviously a huge difference between the National Review/20th Century brand of conservatism and the Breitbart/21st Century brand of conservatism.

Yep, I just ignore the answers of ppl that didn't bother reading OP. I'm not moving to Houston or ATL sorry. Metros under 1 million please guys. You'd get a rep for reading, but apparently I have to spread it around more before I can do that.

I'm not sure why you think it wouldn't offer " a life." Redding is a small metro in Northern California. It's not really a tourist destination though it is very picturesque. It is conservative, but not conservative in the sense that suburbs of Southern cities are. The biggest drawback is that there aren't many large employers there.

If you want a cosmopolitan, sophisticated, cultured metropolitan area with relatively very affordable housing, check out Cleveland.

University Circle is one of the nation's top cultural centers, as home to one of the nation's best art museums (free admission), one of the world's best orchestras and what is oft regarded as the nation's most beautiful concert hall, the 37th-ranked university by U.S. News & World Report, and the Cleveland Clinic.

Compendium of threads & posts on Univ. Circle, Cleveland Hts., Shaker Ht., Univ. Hts., Beachwood area

NASA has a big center in Cleveland.

Cleveland has a reputation as a Democratic city, but it is quite moderate, with a conservative leaning in several suburban areas.

E.g., check out the opinion pieces of the vice chairman of the Plain Dealer's editorial page. E.g., O'Brien's columns on climate change are scientifically offensive.

Kevin O'Brien Column & Articles | Plain Dealer Newspaper Columnist - cleveland.com

Progressive Insurance is a very large employer on the eastern side of Greater Cleveland.

Columbus, OH, has several large insurance companies, such as Nationwide. The Ohio State University is a dominant influence in the community, perhaps making Columbus the largest college town in the U.S. It doesn't offer the same level of cultural amenities as Cleveland, but likely is far superior to Des Moines.

I think these are both good recommendations. I would probably say Phoenix over Loudoun County.

I meant that it was a video made to attract tourists.
