Really? I thought the WI State Fair was lame. Then again, my only comparison is the MN State Fair which claims to be the largest in the country. What a blast, beer, car shows, throw up rides, babes, agricultural equipment, radio/TV show remotes, beer, freak shows (actually those went away about 20 yrs ago), beer, people watching, cheese curds, corn dogs, yumm...
Well, I thought your fair was a great time. I've been there so many times, I could find my way around blindfolded. I guess it all depends on where you're coming from. I even saw Henny Youngman there one year -- he must have been about 112 years old. I'll tell you the best annual outdoor event in the entire area -- the Renaissance Fair in Bristol, IL -- if you've never been, you don't know what you're missing!

Southeast Michigan:

Best of:
+in the right areas there are a multitude of ethnic restaurants
+Fall is gorgeous where they haven't hacked down all the trees (mainly north of here)
Unfortunately I can't think of too much else

Worst of
-job market sucks
-too much stigma on the muslim community in DB heights
-the big 3 screwed this state hard, and left before we woke up
-music scene is sophmoric
-not enough diesel enthusiasts
-not enough eco-enthusiasts (ie. burn your trash, throw it out the window of a moving car, throw it out period)
-6 months of winter/ 6 months of road work
-poor to no public transportation
-state income tax
-murphy's law is amplified in this state for some reason, especially in the winter when you don't have time or tools.

I'd move if my fam didn't live here.

Boy, post #1 was a kinder, gentler individual wasn't it?

Tulsa

Best of:
+ Well-kept secret.
+ Grade "A" place to raise a family.
+ None of that big-town (cough DALLAS cough) snobbery or fake titty obsession.
+ Good infrastructure - easy to get around, short commutes, decent airport, etc.
+ Built on oil money = big-town amenities. Arts, fine dining, recreation, etc.
+ Close to lots of bigger cities. Dallas, OKC, KC, STL, Austin, are all a short day's drive.

Worst of:
+ Bible belt. Churches here are what corner bars are to St. Louis.
+ Shoddy state & local government. Way too many taxes, poorly run.
+ Allergy capital of the universe.
+ Employment. Hit & miss...largely because of item 2 (shitheads run the place).
+ Lots of people who reinforce the dipshit redneck stereotype (easy to spot, they all drive Fords with OU stickers or license plate frames.
