In the event of a move, I've narrowed it down to three cities. Which of them would you pick? Right now, I'm leaning towards Sioux Falls.

1. Fort Wayne, Indiana

2. Sioux Falls, South Dakota

How did you come up with those choices? I'd probably go with Sioux Falls, too, BTW.

Fort Wayne was the old Miami town Kekionga. Little Turtle defeated the American General Harmar there in, oh, 17 and 92 or so.

I think I'd pick Fort Wayne.

Erie wouldn't be bad either.

I had no idea Fort Wayne had tall buildings there! I've never been to any of them, but from what I've researched on this forum, Sioux Falls, SD would be your best choice. Apparently they are a midwestern boomtown right now.

I've been to Erie and Fort Wayne, and I'd lean toward Fort Wayne. I was pleasantly surprised by it's downtown, and the outskirts looked decent too.

Erie was OK, the nature park on the shore is nice, but it looked a little too rundown as a whole for my taste.

Sioux Falls is my choice. I'm biased in favor of the great plains.

I wouldn't go w/ Erie, just because its a dying city apparently
I've heard that Fort Wayne is very boring
And All ive heard about Sioux Falls is good things

Based on skylines i would go w/ Fort Wayne though

i've actually heard the exact same.

I think Sioux Falls is a good city, and many people must think since it's towards the very top on the fastest growing cities in the midwest.
