Let me make this clear from the beginning: this is not a bash other cities thread, nor is it a medium for declaring one's region superiority over another. This thread is only intended to pose this question: If you were to move to the Midwest, which city would you choose?

Now, keep in mind that you can move wherever you like...looking for the same features in your current city? Looking for an new experience? Whatever. What city (that is NOT Chicago) would move to?

^ Sure. Just so long as you're moving to another Midwestern city.

I voted Columbus but I could have just as easily voted for St. Louis. I lived in Chesterfield for a while and absolutely loved it. St. Louis has so much soul and history and people don't realize what a freakishly beautiful part of the country it's in. I love driving into town on 44 with the bluffs around Eureka.

But Columbus is a genuine university town that is growing into a vibrant metropolis. And it's latte and cul-de-sac culture is, regrettably, how I roll.

Milwaukee. It's like a little Chicago. I would say Minneapolis but it's TOO cold up there. I like cold. But uh....

Of the cities on the list, I'd say Minneapolis. I can handle the cold.

I used to live fairly close to St. Louis many years ago and I agree 100% with Mr. Answers. It is a neat city and the downtown riverfront area is nice--historical, brick, cobblestone streets. Having been born in Chicago and growing up in north central Illinois, I can also tell you the St. Louis area has MUCH milder winters than Chicago does. Missouri is really a beautiful state--hills, bluffs, lakes, nice little towns, riverboats, etc.
