I personally would choose Frederick, MD!! Its really beautiful. Great old architecture downtown. Many, many, many little privately owned shops and restaurants downtown. The city is very anti-chain, so the only chain store you'll find downtown is a Starbucks, which everyone tried to keep from coming. its definanty pedestrian friendly and has ok public transport. Its population is 60,000, but its 45 mins from both DC and Baltimore, 3 hours from Philly and Pittsburgh, 4 from Richmond. If you're into history, Fredericks got tons, and is near Gettysburg and Antietam. Theres mountains right in Frederick and the Potomac's very close. Its got a good ratio of Sunny/cloudy days. There are definently friendly and diverse people there. i think there are a little too many festivals here too and its a bit artsy. The Traffic can be a problem at around 3-5 on weekdays. its a pretty area and i wish i could move back.

Minneapolis, beautiful skyline, great economy, ok climate, good public transportation and an over all nice city, though Omaha is still my favorite

Sioux Falls. If I die, and can't live in Omaha for all eternity, I wanna live there.

Camden, Maine. I doubt that it fits much of that criteria, but I like it.

I love Monterey, CA, La Jolla, CA, and Charleston, SC. These cities are beautiful and right on the beach.

That said, I'll nominate Charleston, SC. It's a truly underrated city. It has a really unique vibe, complete with great local architecture, the beach, walkable neighborhoods, super-friendly residents, a pleasant climate, and a one-of-a-kind culture. And it's pretty affordable.
My thoughts exactly!

Winter Park, FL...a truly beautiful community with a college, great retail and entertainment district, lovely neighborhoods and a chain of lakes running right through it. I loved going to school there.
