I have been to St Louis and there are TONS of free/cheap things to do with your family. It's also pretty nice.

I would move to one of the many thousands of smaller communities myself. Don't really like the congestion in bigger cities. If it HAD to ba a larger city I would Grand Rapids, MI

This is a bit too open ended for me to speculate. Are you asking for yourself? Why? Is it for cost of living, change of pace of life, what do you like/dislike in a living situation?

I know I do not like Detroit. I really like mountains and lakes, so WI or MN might be good, but then I don't like extreme cold.

Indianapolis might be good because cost of living is so low and salaries are decent, but it a bit flat for me.

I live in Indianapolis; obviously I have no reason to leave!

All kidding aside; I picked Cincinnati. I like Minneapolis; but it is WAY TO COLD. Here in Indy, it is -12 degrees fareighnheit. It is so cold, it hurts. Literally. I could not take this for long durations like they get up in the Twin Cities, I don't care how nice your town is when it is this cold. Cincinnati is probably my favorite midwestern city; outside of Indy and Chicago. Cincy has great neighborhoods, and I love the riverfront. If they ever get their act together and finish the Banks project and add street car, it will only add to the charm.

I would choose Milwaukee because of its proximity to Chicago, Lake Michigan, and I think Wisconsin is beautiful. My second choice would probably be Kansas City - a nice city and it's warmer there.

I'm making a change - my second choice would be Omaha. It wasn't on the list, and I was strictly going off the list. I love the city of Omaha.

Missouri is really a beautiful state--hills, bluffs, lakes, nice little towns, riverboats, etc.
St. Louis still gets cold winters that usually get a decent amount of snow. But yes, not like Chicago's snow. In terms of temperature though St. Louis can get just as bone-chillingly cold as Chicago. It's only 9 degrees here right now and last night it was 4 below.
