    Please rephrase the question to be “which is the best second tier city for qualify of life in the us?” so that the poll doesn’t come across as click bait.

      Lol..If you already know what city one prefers to live in then why even have a poll?

    • Stop working for low tier company op and then maybe you’ll feel comfortable in 1st tier city. Or enjoy unbearable hot shithole in the middle of nowhere sometimes called Austin.

      Suffer in NYC and yet you include Boston? I don’t understand the options in this poll.

      SD really is the best. Housing is expensive and salaries are lower, but I’d probably sell my house and downsize to a 500sqft condo to go back. The only thing holding me back is living near my family now, they’ll be disappointed.

      Other question is where are tech jobs in SD?

      I would move back there in a heartbeat for the right job. Lived there for 4 years and didn't want to leave

      SD has Qualcomm, Intuit, Amazon has an office now, there’s a small google office, Sony, ViaSat, Teradata. If you can stomach it, there’s tons of work in Defense. Northrop Grumman, BAE Systems, Booz Allen Hamilton, General Atomics, Leidos, the Navy (SPAWAR).

    Quality of life for what?

    None of those cities have good quality of life for LGBT people when compared to tier 1 cities.

    A city isn’t good just because people are moving there. Before using argumentum ad populum to justify something you might want to analyze why people are moving there.

      OP
      They are moving there because they want to be there. It's not complicated.
      Also stop turning everything into a LGBT debate, no one cares about your sexuality.

    • OpenTable Meliodas
      The people in those cities do.

      OP
      People vote with their feet. I don't need to ask if Detroit and Pittsburgh are great places to live since they are the only major cities experiencing a population decline

    • Amazon / Databoosting
      Isn't Chicago also experiencing population decline?
      Mar 9
    • Amazon hot 🍞
      OP
      Chicago is at +0.77% which is pretty darn close. Probably due to the brutal winter and South side crime

    If you don’t mind the heat Austin provides a very affordable COL with high TC job opportunities.

    Also has a very vibrant night life scene and it’s location in the middle of the country makes visiting either coast fairly trivial

    "Quality of life" - subjective.
    In a developed nation any city should be good for good quality of life provided u maintain good social life.
