I do not travel too much, but I know there are plenty of walkways. Traffic does get congested however. Parking is typically easy to find except if an event is happening. I do not use public transportation so I cannot really comment on it.

Entry level jobs are plentiful, but it can be difficult to find good employment without knowing someone.
It really depends on the time of day. At noon it feels like death, but mornings and afternoons are pleasent.
