Top Tier 2 or 3 Cities?
I know the topic of "tier 1" cities (NY, SF, LA, Chicago, Dallas, etc) and which is the best is red meat to WSO, but I am more curious on what people think about "lower tier cities" that have a balance of respectability/opportunity and LCOL or a more "relaxed feel" than NYC or SF. Not trying to start a debate, I am just interested in what people have to think on this forum. Also, if people think there are any underrated "tier 4" or pretty small cities that are underrated/up-and-coming, would love to hear about those as well. Thanks
**Please note: Yes I know the idea of having "tiers" for cities is mostly foolish but I think you all know what I am trying to say here. Also, I am not trying to flame large cities or small cities. Just curious.
