My husband and I lived in Kansas City, Missourri and loved it! August is usually a little humid, but there is always a slight breeze, and the sun shines most of the time, April is usually rainy, but everything is pretty because of it. There are a ton of parks everywhere! There is so much culture artistic and otherwise to fill your time, and it's definitley not overpopulated especially where we lived, about 20 minutes east of KC in Independence, MO. You feel like you have room to breathe! [URL="http://www.visitkc.com"]www.visitkc.com[/URL] might be a good place for you to check out, theres just too much for me to describe. The only reason we moved was b/c our family is in Indiana, talk about icky humidity!!!

Good options for work and business are important, as is a place which 'has its finger on the pulse' to an extent, but is not so busy working that life passes its residents by. A mix of business and pleasure.
Weather should be warm (no too humid!) seasons are fine, but if deep snow could be avoided, all the better. Cool days with sunshine are better than warm and cloudy.
This sounds an incredible list as I read it back, but I thought if anyone could shed some light, it would be a great help, even if it covers a few things, I am flexible really. Really! After all this is a dream list.
Omaha would be good for you, we get the occasional snow fall and have a great economy.

You haven't mentioned your educational level, your skills or your work history. Now's a scary time to move anywhere with the economy and all.

Good places to move that are exciting and with a good economy right now are Dallas, Houston, Chicago, Atlanta, San Antonio, Seattle, San Diego, Raleigh, Charlotte, Philly, Ok City and Omaha

Great cities that have economies that need work but other than that are wonderful are Cleveland, Buffalo, Rochester NY and Portland

Great cities but not practical because of cost of living and NYC, DC and Boston

Right now Portland has a very diverse economy that is rapidly growing. Small buisness is flourishing more than in most cities in America right now, and finding a job is easier than it has been in years!
