Chicagoland, even though its quite expensive to live here. Jobs are abundant, they pay well, etc, etc. Chicagoland has now led the nation in most corporate relocations and corporate expansion projects for several years straight, and by a long shot.

As this thread demonstrates, ask a different person, get a different answer.

I think it really depends on your field.

Not even close. NoVa has a hot government-related job market. But it is, by most accounts, inflated. And NYC and Boston are two of the most economically stagnant areas. The most economically viable areas are those that actually promote population and job growth. Because Boston and NYC are so cost prohibitive to the middle class, no company will move there.

The reason Charlotte, Nashville, Houston, Dallas, Austin, and Atlanta are exploding is that they all offer cheap land, low taxes, and decent quality of life that attracts businesses and, consequently, people. NYC and Boston are great American cities. But they are SO last century. The face of America is in Nashville and Dallas.....

With the massive population growth in the sunbelt in the coming years I have to agree with that. The population growth for most areas of the Midwest and Northeast will remain mostly slow growth with continued rural decline.
