I recently decided i needed a change from the simple, mid western life i am accustomed to (KC). I have researched a few cities, and am unsure of where to go.

Denver, Seattle, Phoenix and San Diego seem to be the best fit, but i cant make a decision.

My situation isnt too complicated. I'm single and have a college degree and a little over a year of professional work experience. I'll be looking for a job in business administration, and expect to make in between 35 and 50K. I want to be in a good singles city with culture, and a descent nightlife.

The cities i have listed above seem like great cities, each in their own way, but I'm not sure which one would be the best to live in. Can someone please give me some direction or advice?

Thanks for your help!!

Sam Diego (the Mission Beach section is perfect for young professionals)

The three cities all have unique offerings. Denver gets a fair amount more sun than does Seattle, but its winters are very harsh. San Diego is the perfect climate and has amazing beaches. It's expensive.

Seattle isn't cheap, but not quite as expensive as SD. Jobs are plentiful for guys like you.

Seattle has less sun, but from late spring to early fall, the weather is close to perfect. Like San Diego it is close to salt water, albeit cold. So boating is huge there.

I'd say that Seattle is the best singles place but on your budget I'd got for Denver.

I'd say Phoenix would be your best fit.
