new orleans? not yet!
but i will make my move eventually...
i spent only a week there (park city, plus other stops), good enough for me. do not miss.
yeah i guess so
moab is a nice semi-boho town, but it’s so not like the rest of utah
neither am i, dance clubs are a horror to me, but i like live theater and innovative bands and good art museums/galleries and people watching and experimental music and lots of migrants and that sort of scene.
In my experience from moving to a new city for work and being all alone, my social life didn't really kick in until about 1.5 years later, and it started getting pretty good by year 3. I'm an introvert though so that slowed things down. My social life definitely came through my coworkers which kinda slowed things down I'm sure.

I think a small town is ... I went to a lot of live music in my younger years.... gardening with the Pentecostals, but it’s weird to be around people who don’t believe in science (but have a cell phone and drive a car?). ...
I can’t speak for the night life, but in a college town there will always be bars and the like.
that is indeed a great option but my sense is he’s sort of fresh out of college and at the point of starting a career, just like his girlfriend.
Uh huh.10meg service... That kind of makes the point. Gigabit is fast internet. I think my dorm room was offering more than 10meg in 1999.

* low pop. density
* access to nature, preferably hiking trails, mountains, forests
* low crime
* nearby grocer or preferably Amazon Prime delivery available
* Reasonable drive and/or public transportation to nearby international airport (this is assuming pandemic/s aren't a new fact of life and travel is advisable again)
i have a friend who loves nature and went to grad school there, but was not crazy about the city’s culture in general. not saying that this applies to everyone, otherwise the place would be deserted, but as @Frita says, every city has its own vibe, and OP’s checklist maybe doesn’t take “vibe” into account.
