Looking to relocate to KC (among other places)

The wife and I have grown weary of Wichita and want to get out of here. KC-MO, Raleigh-NC, and Denver/Colorado Springs-CO are our first options. Figured I would use the resources of CP to get some info on KC and possible work.

My work experience includes sales, customer service, computer support (both in person and via call center), helpdesk, and management (cell phone shop). I'm looking for work in that vein. I'm also looking for suggestions on what part of town to look at vs avoid.

If anyone has any leads or info to share... it would be greatly appreciated.

I think so too but they each have their perks.

KC is near Wichita and wifey's parents are ancient so it would be nice to be somewhat nearby. Not having to drive 3.5 horus for Chiefs games is also a huge bonus.

Raleigh-Durham is 1 hour away from the ocean (which I miss greatly) and 1 hour from mountains. I sincerely miss geographical changes... Wichita is flat and boring.

CO would have us near a major city and beautiful scenery. Wifey enjoys skiing so not having to go forever away to do so is great as well.

I've not ruled out any other city but climate will have a lot to do with the decision.

I've been to all those places and if I had the choice, I'd probably pick Colorado on aesthetics alone.
However, take a look at the job market, taxes etc.

I'm surprised you're not thinking about Omaha with your background.

.

What are you talking about? You'd pick a city based on how "scenic" it was? If that's what you're saying, that's really dumb.

Because only stupid people choose to live somewhere based on the surroundings. The more you talk, the dumber you sound.

Leaving town and heading into the mountains instead of cornfields? Don't have any idea why that would be more appealing.

A couple years ago, we were named I think #6 in the nation of 'techy' cities. Papillion, an Omaha Suburb is year after year, top 5 in the Nation of 'best places' to live.

Paypal is here.
Google (server farm) is here.
ConAgra Foods is here.
Mutual of Omaha
Berkshire Hathaway
TD Ameritrade
Marriott Worldwide Reservation Center

many, many more.

Omaha Storm Chasers, Triple A for the Royals, here at Papillion.
Nebraska Cornhuskers, 45 minutes away.

I'm a Chiefs Season Ticket Holder, 3 hour drive. Love it. Mom & Dad in NW Missouri, 90 minutes away. Cabin in the hills on an Acreage.

....Livin' in Heaven.

KC's a great city with much lower expenses than the other two. If scenery matters, well, ya know.
