Dallas fits the bill pretty nicely. Decent public transportation right now, and possibly good public transportation in a few years from now. It's got about 14 more light rail stations opening at the end of this year and an entire new line coming next year, so it's expanding aggressively.

Dallas is light-rail. I don't know if the OP would want to rely on something like that without a car. I mean, it stops at traffic lights, lol.

Then why would you even bring up Portland which is pretty much entirely surface-level light rail or SF which relies heavily on MUNI which is also light rail? That's just plain nonsensical.

Because it's a bigger system at least, and it's also right on the water, which is what they're looking for.

DENVER. Much better climate than the Midwest, great place for young professionals, great scenery, and growing public transit.

It also didn't include the Trinity Railway Express Commuter train that runs from Dallas to Fort Worth

Dallas is doing a lot of work expanding their rail system anyways. In 10 years no one would even be able to recognize it.
