Me and the missus have decided that we've got to find somewhere else to live if we're going to stay in the US... it's far too cold and boring here! So, I thought I'd tap TB's collective wisdom on the subject - where do you think is the best city to live in the US? Granted, everyone's going to have a different opinion, but it might be easier if I spell out the sort of things we're looking for. It has to be a city, with good transportation (public transport and highway connections), plenty of character (ie, lots of old buildings, history, etc), low crime rate, reasonably decent weather, moderately multi-cultural, fairly liberal, a good live music scene, not hideously expensive to live in, and with decent jobs available in the technology/internet and banking fields (our respective career paths). Basically, I want to fall in love with a city again, the same way I love London. I want to live somewhere that I enjoy being in every day. I want to live somewhere that's easy to get around, and where the people are pleasant. And it'd be nice to live somewhere where I can find a decent Indian curry. So far we're looking at Boston, San Diego, Austin, Phoenix and maybe San Francisco as possibilities, but we want to hear more. So, bring 'em on... and let's try and keep it as non-controversial as possible.
