People have mentioned Cincinnati a couple times.

Say what you will about it, but its hard to argue, that this is one of the most structurally urban cores in the midwest, if not the entire country. Heres a great video to highlight urban Cincinnati. Not my time by 3 Doors Down. Enjoy.

The few times I was in Cincinnati the place was Snoozerville, albeit with an interesting combination of natural features and built environment. Pittsburgh has essentially the same combination of natural features and built environment and I found it considerably livelier.

True. But has there been as cool of a music video filmed in Pittsburgh as that one?

You all do realize, outside of Cleveland and Milwaukee, land wise, Indy is 3rd smallest of the midwest major metros.

Back to topic: I like Madison, as far as a 2nd choice is concerned. MSP and Milwaukee are solid, as well. St. Louis is pretty interesting, but I'll bet that the summers are awful..
I think what confuses people is Missouri was a slave state, yet it did not secede from the Union. At any rate, to try to get back to the original topic, as a life long St. Louisan, you have to count St. Louis as solidly midwestern.

Midwestern cities I like: Madison, Milwaukee, Twin Cities, Des Moines, Omaha. St. Louis is OK. I don't like Eastern time zone so I have a bias towards towns east

Do you really have a specific dislike for a particular time zone? Just out of curiosity, how and why? I don't believe I've heard of that before. But I suppose it really shouldn't be surprising. One of the universal truths about the human race is its seemingly limitless capacity for irrational ill-will towards arbitrary targets.

Minor niggle but... when I lived in the Eastern time zone one thing I found a bit weird and disorienting is that the evening news didn't start until 11pm. But its not like work hours started an hour later the next day. You were unlikely to watch the evening news and get a full night's sleep; you had to choose one or the other.
