I am in my 20's looking for somewhere to move outside of the midwest. That is liberal with a great art, music, and underground community (indie art, music, and movies). I would love to move to So. Cal but to expensive for me.

How about Havana Cuba? I hear Castro is very socialist and doesn't go in for any of that Anglo-corporate crap. It's one big party. But he seems to be dying. So why not try for North Korea?

You could try Portland, Eugene or Seattle. They are not cheap but less expensive than southern California.

Could try Florida or maybe Texas. Dallas might fit. Miami or one of the bigger cities in Florida. I like the Ft. Lauderdale area. I don't like the west coast of Florida.

FL does have its problem but if you are renting can pick up and go if things get dicey.

Cambridge, MA but you might never make it back out of there. Winters are too tough also.

I might bite the bullet and go for San Francisco. Great place for a young fellow. Would pick somewhere that the weather is going to decent most of the time.

I'd recommend the Pacific Northwest, Seattle, Portland and so on. Although, the Midwest isn't a cultural wasteland for people like you, there are some decent college towns in the midwest where you'll get some of that as well, such as Madison, Wisconsin and Ann Arbor, Michigan. I've heard good things about Minneapolis as well (although I've admittedly never been there).

Asheville, NC is a very nice little area. Very artsy and VERY beautiful.

Asheville is quite beautiful, I visited there last spring. However, I talked to a few people lived there and they told me that jobs were in short supply.

I'm not an expert on the area, but I visited Atlanta once and it seemed to have a lot going on, a lot of young people. My friend relocated there a few years ago, he's in his early 20s, and he said there is plenty to do, clubs, music, restaurants, and such. The job market is good. But I couldn't say for sure if it's exactly what you are looking for.
