As with any city you are considering moving to, investigation is critical: visit, talk to locals, walk the city and neighborhoods, check housing/supermarket prices, talk to more locals, and do your due diligence whenever you can. And be ready for them: The economy still seems largely service/hospitality oriented, and you will likely not be paid well. Perhaps it's outdoorsy types more content to scrape by on less - or, again, the aforementioned wages/economic situation, who knows.
