Say it like it is, but you did forget about Florida, what about Tampa? Low cost of living, beautiful weather, beaches you can actually swim at, AND a swing state!

Having lived in several of the places you mentioned (Detroit, NYC, SF Area) and been to all the others, you nailed each place. This a great article.
