Only Miami is really going to be great for women (the club scene there is very hard unless you have the time to get connected).
I was pick NYC, SF, or Austin TX, LA.
In that order for what you are trying to do (I don't like NYC though, just a personal thing)
I am going to go against the grain and disagree with you about mostly all of those cities in terms of women Chris.
NYC is horrible for dating, very tight knit east coast social circles that are hard to break into for outsiders and I've found that so many girls are chasing the Sex In The City lifestyle to where they want a higher status guy (usually some trust fund baby, Wall Street Douche, or faggy hipster that plays music at a bar).
I think it will be very hard to pull quality in the city because the women that are there for more than a few months get spoiled if they are hot.
I'm currently living in San Mateo (don't come here, is beyond boring), a town like 30 minutes south of San Francisco. I'm lucky that I have family here that let me stay for free while I make money. The rents in the bay area are extremely high and I think it's torture working real hard just to pay the rent. The Bay Area is your place to go if your an IT guy, San Francisco is great in both women and things to do, but like I said, in order to have a comfortable lifestyle you need a good paying job and when you get here expect sharing a room with someone else while you get settled.
Changing subject, I'm planning to live in LA for a while in the near future, I was wondering how the rents are over there and if a job like being a waiter or bartender can pay the bills. My objective is going full force on girls if I go there.
Being in the IT industry, I can tell you the three largest markets for tech are NY, Texas and CA so Chris pretty much hit it on the head with his suggestions. I've been to each of those places but lived in Texas and Austin in particular for many years.
I loved NYC the few times I went, city never sleeps as others have said and buying a fake Rolex and Gucci purse on Canal street from some guy who looked like he was going to mug me was a trip, but I was just visiting and don't have to live there and could see that life starting to wear on you after a year or so. Plus, expensive place to live (second most expensive behind San Francisco if you're talking about Manhattan where all the action is).
If I had no responsibilities or regard for income and could pick anywhere to live on the mainland US, I think it would have to be SoCal. The weather really is as amazing as you've heard and the natural beauty is phenomenal. My buddy that lives in Orange County surfs everyday before work, mountain bikes on the weekends and ski's in the winter, all while driving around town in a jeep with no top. More IT going on up in LA and the Bay area for sure, but also more expensive to live in those places. NorCal is pretty cold in the winter, though if you're Nordic that may not be an issue for you but San Francisco and surrounding area (San Jose) are legit the most expensive places to live in the entire US. You may get a six figure salary, but it probably doesn't go as far as half that would in a less expensive place to live like Austin.
I lived most of my life in Texas and Austin is an amazing town. The humidity and hot summers can suck but Austin is known as the second silicon valley and the second Hollywood. Compared to CA and NY prices for real estate are downright dirt cheap, taxes are low and the night scene in downtown Austin is exceptional. Austin is called the live music capital of the world and some of the best restaurants in the US have recently opened there. Uchi if you like sushi is amazing but better make a reservation unless you want to wait an hour to sit at the bar. Franklins has what is considered the best barbeque in the world, get in line at 7AM if you want to eat there for lunch before they run out, or you could order as take out but it's a 3 month waiting list. And with University of Texas right in the heart of Austin followed by Texas State just an hour south in San Marcos, there are no shortage of college hotties in the clubs/bars or at the lakes/rivers. There are also close by natural wonders like Lake Travis and the Guadalupe/Comal rivers, or even Barton springs pool, which is a spring fed 3 acre swimming pool with a year round temp between 68F-70F. Women can even sunbathe topless there, don't get too excited it's rare but every now and then a sexually liberated co-ed will strut her stuff while all the guys gawk (man typing this is making me miss Austin!).
While I think Austin is an amazing town and great for cost of living plus things to do and while it is the most liberal or left leaning city in all of Texas, coming from a European country you might find some of the locals and politics, "bass ackwards", to use a country boy term. That being said the people are friendly and even if you have a more liberal world view, as long as you are respectful you'll receive the same respect right back in most cases.

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
Kratom is next!
