Default good places for young professionals to move to?

I am looking for a liberal-minded community with great weather, that is affordable, has professional sports teams, and is relatively safe. A place that is surrounded by a bevy of entertainment options within a 2-4 hour car ride. What are some cities that fit these descriptions?

Of course, in a Homer move I'm going with Denver.

The entire state aside from Colorado Springs is very open-minded and liberal (especially Boulder). Four professional sports teams and a D-1 college football/basketball team (even though we suck) about 25 mintues away from downtown Denver. The downtown party and shopping scene is crazy, there are bars, restaurants, clubs, and shops everywhere.

Weather is great, Colorado gets an an average of 300 days of sunshine a year. Great ski resorts are only an hour or two away. Forbes magazine also just named Denver the number one city for singles. Everyone is active here and Colorado is one of the healthiest states in the U.S., fat chicks are pretty rare out here.

Move to Scottsdale man. Weather is great year round. You have the Suns, Cardinals, Coyotes....not to mention the Fiesta Bowl each year and the FBR Open which is the biggest party on the PGA tour. You also have an entire month of Spring Training each March. It's a very, very clean city that's as safe as you are going to get. It's like 5 hours (or a 1 hr plane ride) to Vegas, San Diego, LA, or Rocky Point, Mexico. You can drive a couple hours north for a day trip of skiing during the winter (and be back that evening wearing flip flops). Or you can drive about 3.5 to northeast az for a weekend of skiing. Tons of outdoor activities out here and the chicks are beautiful!!!!

I came out here looking to stay a year or two...i'm going on 10 years now.

Are you speaking in terms of primarly just the States only or does your range in travel vary?
