Kansas City
Colorado Springs
Minneapolis/ St. Paul
Orlando
Indianapolis
Columbus, Ohio

if youve noticed Omaha is NOT on the list. thats because we have heard enough about it and its time to mention some of these other great cities. if you want to add to list, go right ahead, but DO NOT mention OMAHA. we have enough information on that.

I think I will add ahamO to the list. Booming economy right now, job market is good and competitive. All around good area.

Detroit, according to my brother and his wife. Things are bad, he is in the construction field and she was employed with General Motors. Needless to say they are seeing some tough times.

Indianapolis has a pretty decent economy right now. So does Columbus, OH.

Kansas City is mediocre and sliding as is Rochester,NY.

Not sure about the others because I have not checked their employment figures and trends recently.

Well, with at least 3 new major employers commited to coming in in the next 5 years with anticipated job growth of >3000 new jobs and a stable base of existing jobs coupled with still rising housing prices, little old Little Rock is rocking.

Why isn't Atlanta on the list? It's known for it's booming job market.
Same with a lot of the Texan cities.

I will commend you for adding Raleigh. The research triangle is huge.

Radraja didn't say Raleigh wasn't on the list. Radraja "commended" you for having Raleigh on the list, which is the same thing as saying "congratulated" you for having Raleigh on the list.

Salt Lake City and Nashville should also be on the list.
