I like Wichita because it's got the small town feel with most of the city amenities and culture.

The cost of living is very affordable. A family can easily afford a house from the income they make from the aircraft industry. The bad side is that it could be a bit boring (really dependent on your interest). On the bright side, Vietnamese food is really good here.
