Prescott, AZ but it's more of a town then a city.

New York and Chicago are honest-to-goodness Northern cities with real walkable downtowns.

That's an opinion not a fact.

LOL! Yeah, as I heard one of the filmmakers of LA Story put it, "newcomers arrive at LAX looking for a city and ask, 'where is it? What is it?'"

Too bad Philly is not on your list. Some definite up & coming sections for people of your age (also my DD's age & she loves it there). Plenty of great jobs, and a very active nightlife, too.

Good luck to you in your new adventure!

On your list I'd recommend NY or Chicago. They're huge, very urban, diverse, dynamic, no car necessary. And if those qualities appeal to you I'd suggest you also look into Boston, Philadelphia, San Fran, and DC. The only problem is all of those cities (except Chi and Philadelphia) are very expensive. But that's why you get roommates, and they're part of the fun of moving in.

We're not "really into banking" and we love it here in Charlotte

why are orlando & raleigh on this list? they look like a joke compared to some of your other options (new york, atlanta, dallas, seattle, etc.) in that case, i'd pick atlanta for you, with dallas & seattle close behind.

Yep, third largest city. Chicago would be an excellent choice for you. It has everything you want and still maintains a reasonable cost of living. Just be ready for a cold winter which by the way isn't that bad. Get a job lined up before you make the move.

I voted Seattle, very cool vibe for your age/situation. Portland would also be high on my list as well.

I would love to move to Daytona Beach, Florida. I've visited there about 3 times already and I'm in love!! Especially during the Spring Break time, there's a party everywhere and you just jump right in and you're one of the party people for the day. It's fun.
