Austin is my favorite.
I imagine I might like Seattle more, though. Never been there, so I can't say.

I'd have to pick Scottsdale Arizona. We spend quite a lot of time there although we don't live there.....yet. It's got a small city feel of the wild west....but with all the amenities, or close to them at least.

Statistically it would be Austin

Extremely low crime rate - 30 murders for 700,000 people is insane

Highly educated population, lots of tech jobs

Summers aren't super hot, very moderate winters (60 F ave high in January)

I just saw an episode of South Park the other night, that went like this:

"We have to find a worse place than that to send them to!"
(A few seconds pause, then, in unison)
"SCOTTSDALE!".

MY vote would go to Kansas City. Very liveable, low crime rate, traffic is not bad. Mild climate, but still four seasons. All the major benefits of a big city, but close to small-town lifestyle.

Denver, Colorado

It's just a really neat, clean, beautiful city and I never get tired of the Rocky Mountain backdrop. I've never encountered any sort of hostility there. People I've met there are very laid back and warm and there is so much to do whether it's in the city, in a suburb, or up in the Rockies.
