Indianapolis, just from personal experience.
And are you comparing City proper or metro area?
Some folks seem to forget everything that this city has to offer tons of things that other places don't. If you enjoy sitting on the porch and need not much else then places like South Carolina are wonderful. And Indy isn't a city like Chicago is...it's not even a fraction. Chicago has so much to offer besides the negatives that we can think of. Museums, food, night life, lake front (also good in Indy I hear
), music/concerts, plays/musicals, comedy clubs, it's clean, nicely decorated, big but not too big, good public transport, and offers such an abundance of unique things and people...that people seek to come here from all over the world such as our architecture. The list is way too big for me to go on, but faq me, I'd fuggin off myself if I had to live in Indy or South Carolina...not that I wouldn't love to visit, but so long as I could come home to my Chicago
And not that places like Indy or South Carolina aren't nice (only using those since I saw them posted no offense meant), but if we're talking city to city, Indy is the finger that poked through the toilet paper compared to Chicago.
