I think livable is about as subjective as it gets and entails different things to pretty much everyone.

Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, and OKC probably shouldn't be on there. El Paso should. But I will go by the OP's metrics.

-Economy - anything but California
-Cost of Living - Denver, Texas cities, OKC
-Quality of Life - SD
-Recreation - i pick SD because I'm more into beaches than forests and mountains
-Food - probably Seattle
-Attractions (Nightlife, Sports, Shopping) - California Cities
-Education (Public and Universities) - SF

Salt Lake City.
4 percent unemployment rate, very under rated city, great public transportation system, close to mountains and desert, low cost of living.

Except for one problem - if you're not Mormon nobody will date you. Just for the heck of it one time I searched Match.com and every woman who was LDS was searching for a partner who was LDS.

I have heard of this probably as well, Mormons rarely date outside their religion, even if the person is not really associated with a certain religion. So if you a single who is looking Salt Lake city may not have the best dating scene but it does seem like a good place to raise a young family!
