Boulder feels very new in most areas.

Salt Lake City and Boise get my vote.

To be clear, I didn't say I want to move to Frisco.

Both have historic downtown areas and extensive historic districts given each was founded in the mid to late 1800s. They do of course have plenty of new build around their fringes but that of course applies pretty much to any city with positive growth the past few decades.

Charlotte, North Carolina - probably the cleanest downtown in the country - very new and updated.

Greenville, South Carolina - award-winning downtown with a park and waterfall going through it.

Charlotte is too big to be mid-sized since it's the 17th largest city in population, has all major sports teams, a busy airport, headquarters of Bank Of America and lots of traffic. The only reason why Charlotte isn't taken seriously as Atlanta or Miami is that it doesn't quite have a local identity in terms of music, food, or any significant media presence which is why is often forgotten when discussing east coast cities.

I know most of the cities in Texas are booming and new, but Texas stays way to hot and I prefer seasons and light traffic.
Kansas City, Missouri.

Last week National Geographic Traveler magazine named KCMO as one of the top travel destinations for 2019. (Oakland, CA, and South Walton County, FL, were the only other American cities listed.) The magazine chose Kansas City because of its ongoing urban renewal. Kansas City has been undergoing extreme gentrification for the past 10 years. But the town is still affordable--about half of the price of the East coast and West coast. We also have four seasons. (In fact, we had a blizzard last week. ) Traffic is light, too.
