I'd rather live on East Coast/West Coast. The only "Midwest" place I like is Colorado. Montana is pretty cool too but I consider that "Northernish". Every other place I consider midwest is meh....
My Midwest is TX, OK, MO, IA, NE, IL, over to TNish. Nothing draws me to live there except cheap/nice houses. A double wide trailer with .2 acres here is anywhere from 125,000-200k+ which makes no sense when I could get 1-2 acres plus a 4 bed 2 bath brick home for about the same.
In the town I live:
300k and nothing THAT special. .23 acres
my home town I graduated from for same price w/28...yes 28 acres...same price:
