Nebraska is a little less rough around the edges than the other 2?

So probably Nebraska.

There are some nice suburbs in Kansas that I wouldn't mind living in. However, I'm going to go with Nebraska. I cannot do tornadoes.

Lincoln, Nebraska!
It is very underrated and I'm surprised it is hardly mentioned on this thread. I would actually prefer Lincoln to Omaha or KC. UNL, Husker, nice neighborhoods, man made lakes, the Haymarket District, all the shopping I need, not too big, not too small - just right

Well, I'd have to say Nebraska, considering I'll be moving there in two months.

I also like some parts of northeast Kansas and the KCMO metro. Oklahoma would be last on my list.

I mentioned Lincoln as Lincoln/Omaha, because they're close and either would do. Lincoln is definitely an underrated little city.

KCKS > Omaha > Lincoln > Lawrence > OKC > Tulsa > Wichita > Topeka

So I guess Kansas, although Nebraska is my favorite state of the three.

KCKS has Google Fiber plus access to the KC urban core and the other amenities KC offers. I'd much rather live on the Missouri side, though, I'm just that shallow.
Omaha is very underrated and feels like a smaller version of KC.
Lincoln and Lawrence are fun college towns, but I'd generally rather live in a bigger city.

Surprisingly, they are all very different from each other. I lived in Kansas for many years, and have traveled about quite a lot in the other two. They are so different, I'd be disinclined to express a preference for any one of them, but their good and bad points are alll different.

A lot of folks from Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma seem to end up in Arizona.

They're not the ones I'm worried about, though.

Those. Oklahoma is way too Conservative for my taste. I like college towns. But I doubt Tulsa would do it for me. ORU isn't actually a regular university.
