Harrisburg, PA is definetely a city to consider. Low cost of living and strong demand for IT professionals.

stable AND IT employment do not mix...
I'm strongly thinking of getting out of it.
I haven't been one of the tons of people laid off... but I do make less now than I used to...
I would say the suburbs of Chicago, NYC or SF ... you are just dealing with much bigger job markets.

Connecticut.

CT is in pretty decent shape with the economy, not great, but what's great with the economy these days... CT is just better than most places in those terms.

Has 4 seasons, good education, and It's very family oriented.
I would suggest Meriden, CT

If you add some more details about what your dream city looks like then people can give you more targeted suggestions. Are you a city kind of person? Do you prefer suburban areas? Have a preference for a certain historic period or architectural style (or do you prefer new construction)? Do you take (or want to take) public transportation? How important is it to live close to museums or other cultural amenities?
minneapolis is geat but only has one LONG season: winter.
