Yeah this is easily my answer too.

If we have to give a specific answer, without knowing all that much about the smaller cities of Europe... IDK... here are the ten largest French urbanized areas below the 150k threshold:

Brest
Nîmes
Le mans
Aix-en-Provence
Clermont-Ferrand
Saint-Denis
Tours
Limoges
Amiens
Metz

Except Saint-Denis (on an island in the middle of the Indian Ocean) the rest all look amazing and 1,000 times better than any US option. And that's just France. Never mind the rest of Europe.
