Default Up and Coming cities and in the next decade?

What do you think the newest "red hot" cities and states of the country are going to be over the next decade.

I think that Arizona will continue to be red-hot mainly because of all the land, but Nevada will fizzle because of its very high housing prices.

I also think the Interstate 35 corridor cities from basically San Antonio, Texas to Kansas City, Missouri will be very fast growing also, I do think the exception though will be Wichita they just dont seem to have a stable economy and its also more isolated.

Oklahoma City I have a feeling will really start to gain population fast because of its proximity to Dallas, warm winters and its very under-priced.

Other cities that are up and coming.
-Sioux Falls, SD: this one will probubly be the fastest growing the midwest percentage wise
-Iowa City, IA
-Duluth, MN: alot of baby boomers will buy homes there
-Columbus, OH: its very underpriced for what it offers
-Spokane, WA area: close to the scenery and favorable taxes in Washington
-All the major cities in Texas (Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, Austin, El Paso)
-Milwaukee, Wisconsin: considered under-rated, close to Chicago
-Grand Rapids and Lansing, Michigan

Anyone know any more on these cities or know any others that are ready to really make a come back or possibly boom for the very first time?

Considering that 25% of the population will be boomers within the next ten years or so, I would say the areas that are to boom are where they will be moving to. According to the Census Bureau, Las Vegas, Phoenix and Dallas are to boom like crazy due to this. All warm climates with lots to do....Boomer Heaven!

Don't forget Ft. Worth, which is comming up faster than the first two. We went from being the 27th largest city in America, to the 19th largest, passing up cities like Washington D.C., Seattle, Boston, and El Paso, in population. Your next Baltimore!!!!!!

Of all the places mentioned, not one has a good climate. Sioux Falls? Duluth? Aaaarrrghhgh! I'm beginning to think the entire USA is one big crummy climate except for SoCal, and they have earthquakes.

Many cities have a great climate; Dallas has a great climate and it was mentioned! Whats your idea of a great climate though?

Cities I expect to grow substantially in the next 10-20 years?

Phoenix
Dallas-Fort Worth
Houston-Galveston
Austin
Denver
Minneapolis
Sioux Falls
Des Moines
Omaha

Many of the lower priced midwestern cities will likely skyrocket in the coming years.

Don't forget cities east of the Mississippi such as Charlotte, Raleigh, and Nashville. They have some of the nations steadiest growth rates and high qualities of life. They're not perfect (no place is), but they're great places and growth is expected to continue for years. The NC forum is, by far, the most visited state forum on this site.

Are you serious about Lansing, Michigan becoming a red hot city??? Have you ever been there?? No city in Michigan is going to become red hot city. Michigan has an economy that is in much worse shape than any other part of the country. Grand Rapids is a fairly decent town, but to think that it will become a boom town is kind of silly, and to think that Lansing will is just asinine. I'm thinking that you really don't know anything about Michigan do you?

Cleveland, Ohio. It has affordable housing, a booming medical industry, and lots of room for development.

Agree on the first 5, Minneapolis maybe, disagree on the last three. What do people do for a living there? Who really wants to live there? Have been to Des Moines and Omaha; Omaha many times over as DH is from there.
