Lake County has both conservatives and lots of great parks and forestland.

So are Denver and Chicago that much better than any of the other cities? What's wrong with Columbus?

Chicago certainly has the most things to do in order to "knock your socks off", but traffic is horrible and some areas are going to be riddled with crime.

I love Chicago...it is an exciting city with a lot of diversity. World class museums, Shedd Aquarium, Sears Tower, Millenium Park, Lake Michigan, Lake Shore Drive, Navy Pier, Chicago Cubs, White Sox, Bears, Bulls, Lincoln Park zoo, Brookfield Zoo, etc. Tons of outdoor things--but not much in the way of wilderness.

I'd have to answer a question w/ a question. How'd you come up with the list?

I don't think Columbus would measure up with #1 Chicago and #2 Denver to be exact, but it seems like your PROS add up to Chicago or Denver and then your CONS cross out Chicago and Denver. Columbus might be something in between. And what are your job criteria and do you have family?
