St Louis for sure. I’ve always said it’s the western most eastern city. It’s got probably a top 5 zoo in the country, the free art museum, beautiful neighborhoods (Lafayette Park, Soulard, Shaw, Tower Grove, Midtown, The Hill, Central West End), great baseball and hockey teams, great beer scene, the muny ( America’s oldest and Largest outdoor musical theatre), Washington University is a top school in the country, Barnes Jewish Hospital, Forest Park (Larger than Central Park), the Cortex innovation district, tons of great architecture spanning so many eras, and lastly the Arch. The media really gives the city a bad rep. Yes we’re not economically crushing it, and yes there are some racial issues, (the delmar divide is definitely a reality the city needs to focus on), and unfortunately tons of corruption at the city and county level of government. If you look past that, the city is pretty damn great, it’s very affordable compared to the coasts, and the people are friendly like much of the Midwest.
