Ok, Des Moines has a strong insurance based economy right now and is growing really nicely, though mostly suburban.

Madison has a stable and growing economy with all of the government jobs.

Milwaukee has tons of potential and I think it will rise back up quite soon.

San Francisco is booming with all of the new developments going on in the city.

Denver has a great economy, but little character compared to Boulder and Colorado City, though thats starting to change.

Minneapolis has an awesome, strong and growing economy and I love its skyline because it looks so modern.

Rockford, where I just got back from, has tons of Hotels and water parks, good Italian restaurants, but its economy is almost entirely dependent on soccer tournaments and their hospital service stinks.

Kansas City is holding it's own, from what I can see. The two auto factories are building, or are in the process of retooling to build, more fuel efficient cars. Which is opposed to the places where factories are being shut down. Sprint's a bit shaky, with a difficult road ahead, I'll admit.
Some conventions have abandoned KC, but more businesses and organizations are looking at having them in KC, thanks to the location of the Power & Light district, and a possibility of another major downtown hotel, among other things.
I've seen some retail suffer a little, but nothing major... not yet, anyway.
On a scale of 1-10, I'll give it a 7-7 1/2. Maybe an 8.

Denver is the Big Kahuna out here in Colorado. The economy is decent for IT, other high tech stuff. Colorado Springs has an OK economy, has some other things you might not like, e.g. a lot of Fundamentalist Christian influence. OK if that's your "cuppa", kind of problematic if it's not.
