Does anyone have a good grip on which cities or towns in the U.S. right now have the best economic situations? I know it's probably been brought up, but I'm looking for something up to date at this point.

Wyoming has some of the lowest unemployment rates.

I googled it and found that Wyoming, North Dakota, some cities in Virginia and Louisiana had the lowest rates. Oklahoma City (where I reside) and San Antonio were recommended as well.
I think the Research Triangle Park area (NC) is doing ok too The Research Triangle Park.

I've been scoping out cities as well but we won't be moving for at least another 5-10 yrs.

MSNBC.com and / or CNBC.com should be reporting the June data from Moody's soon.

Here is a link I posted in another thread with older data:

Lafayette is at 4.8, which isnt very high. A lot of construction and expansion is going on here. We tend to have bad recessions during oil busts though.
