I was torn between Tulsa and Plano, and the only deciding factor was the amount of time I have spent in both, where Tulsa won by a landslide (can't really beat several months with 3 hours). That said Plano became a close second along with Wichita. I haven't really been to any of the other cities so I can't vouch for them. Aside from that why are Minneapolis, Cinci, Providence, St. Louis, Richmond and Burque on there? I've always considered them (as well as Tulsa) to be a little bit more than just 'Mid-sized', especially Burque, Prov., and Minneapolis.
The op stated best mid-size cities,not best mid-size metro, therefore minneapolis do apply within the mid-size cities.

Cary is a suburb of Raleigh, not a midsized "city". In fact, Cary still stubbornly calls itself a town despite the fact that it has 135,000 people.
