Where to live in Chengdu.

I have recently accepted a position in chengdu at a language center. The location of the language center is just west of the 3rd ring road. I am wondering where a good place to live would be. I’m a 26 year old American male and would like to be in the mix of everything. There was a position closer to the city center but the terms of this contract were much better. And by in the middle of everything, I’m interested in culture, parks, nightlife, food, scenery. The standard stuff. Suggestions?
