After talking to my mother I realized I my nephew out to be younger than he is. He's 22 with two kids, which to me is significantly different than 20 with two kids. Although his oldest kid was born before he was 20.

The Granite state could very well lay claim to being one of the most beautiful states in the country.

Plus, I like your state's motto "Live Free or Die."

If the OP has not picked a place yet then please take my advice and avoid Kansas City. I live here and can't wait to move and will do so at the first chance I get. The crime is skyrocketing, the culture is trashy and many of the people and especially the women are brain damaged mental cases.

There are some decent places in Missouri and I think Springfield or Columbia and some of the rural areas would be fine. But avoid the Kansas City area entirely.

I second that notion! That is why I left the Kansas City metro Some of my friends could not understand why I would want to leave. So, I gave them a long list of reasons. It is a pleasant place to visit, but a grinding torture to live there full-time (for me).

Default What Guage Are You Using?

The crime here can be bad in some areas but is not as bad as it's perceived to be and is localized a good distance away from where you would likely be living. The one serious drawback is Little Rock lacks a lot of the urban amenities you might expect from a city of 200,000 (come expecting a city of 80k in that realm), but as Stormcrow says, the outdoor recreation can make up for it if that's what you are looking for.

Be careful about saying broad sweeping subjective statements like "Little Rock lacks a lot of urban amenities you might expect from a city of 200,000." I would like to see the gauge you use to measure a town's amenities.

I would check a Forbes list and compare the cities based on how many corporations they have, Oklahoma is a top city and Kansas City used to be known as a popular home office for corporations. Best bet , I would go to the largest populated area especially for Info tech job security. I would see who is growing their Tech infrastructure.

Little Rock was named 22nd out of 361 metropolitan areas as best places for business in 2005 by Forbes Magazine. Moody's Investor Services ranks Little Rock as the second most diverse economy in the nation. The Brookings Institution ranks Little Rock as the 7th best metropolitan economy in the United States in 2009 with the second best overall growth from 2008 to 2009 after Des Moines. Little Rock is headquarters for IT companies Axciom and Mainstream Technologies.

Capitol cities generally fare a bit better as well. Other stable metros that have weathered the recession well include: Des Moines, IA, Omaha, NE, Sioux Falls, SD, Rochester, MN, Madison, WI, Lincoln, NE, etc. Some that haven't fared as well include: St. Louis, Chicago, Milwaukee, Detroit, South Bend, Kansas City, Grand Rapids, etc.
