mmm Where to go now?

So, I'm looking to move. Anywhere in the U.S. is open to me. So tell me, the best thing about where you live, and the thing you like least about it. Give me some ideas of where to move.

truly, don't read and not comment, lol. I need the help.

Virginia Beach, VA......nice place to live. But it's getting expensive here just like everywhere else.

Well darlin', I'm in Houston. I love living here. You have access to just about anything you'd want. It's a very diverse town. It's 45 minutes to the beach and 3 hours to the casinos in Louisiana. You have to like hot weather because we don't have a winter here. Maybe one month a year runs from cool to cold (40's to 50's is cold for us) Summer, of course, can be very hot (95 to 103) and humid, but it's great if you like being at the lake, pool or ocean. If you like camping, that's about 1 to 1/2 hours from Houston. If you like tubing down a river, then that's about 2 1/2 to 4 hours from Houston. We have great clubs, restaurants, museums, etc... If you don't like being in the middle of a big city, then some of the smaller cities adjacent to Houston are great too and you still have access to the great things Houston has to offer. As far as the cost of living here, it varies of course. However, I believe Houston is one of the more affordable cities to live in.

Hope this helps darlin.

Well not in the US but I like where I live.. It is a city but with a small town attitude. There is lots to do and places to go but the people for the most part are friendly. I would be your personal welcome wagon. lol.

Hope you find a great place to go...

Well, I'm a hometown girl, so I'll promote Albuquerque.
Mostly good climate.
Interesting state with a long history with ties to Spain, Mexico, and the Civil War among others. Art history is damn fine too with 3 "schools" of Art (centered in Albuquerque, Santa Fe and Taos)& most prominently, the Taos School. We're a technologies forward state and have had a strong connection to the national laboratories system since the 1940s as we are home to two - Sandia National Labs and Los Alamos National Labs; we have several technologies and business "incubators" geared toward developing technology applications, inventions and processes as well production.
Albuquerque is considered in the top 10 American cities for health & fitness- our climate and landscape is condusive to outdoor sports including bicycling, running, mountain climbing, skiing (downhill & cross country), river rafting, roller blading, soccer, softball, golf and more.
We have a AAA baseball team - The Albuquerque Isotopes which is the farm team for the Florida Marlins. They're both a bit better than average, and not as bad as some. The Lobo Women's Basketball program is VERY good and Very Popular. The Lady Lobos are better than the men's team.
From the Albuquerque Visitors & Convention bureau: "The Greater Metropolitan Albuquerque area has a population of about 753,988 people with a median age of 32-33 years." (It maybe higher) (When I graduated highschool in 72, our population was less than 100,000 people.) Forbes Magazine recently (5.4.2006) rated Albuquerque as it's #1 pick for Best Places for Business and Careers.

I've lived here almost all of my life - leaving only when I 1) ran away from home when I was a teen and landed in California for 2 weeks before running back home; 2) joining the Air Force and being with them for 5 years and 3) honeymooning for 3 years in the Northern NM town of Red River while running a guest resort so I keep coming back! It's a love thing!

So that's WHY I think Albuquerque is a good place to relocate!

You're so welcome! Yeah, the spelling is a handful - and that's after dropping an "r" out of it. It used to be Alburquerque. Hire me to promote this place? Nah -- like I said, it's a Love thing - I give it away for free!

Nope... Modern spelling is Albuquerque. Old spelling is Alburquerque. The first R is after the bu.

Well I live in NE Pennsylvania, Allentown to be exact. Bad thing about living here is the winters are unpredictable but you do get the four seasons. But it is getting expensive to live here like everywhere else. Lets see on the good side we are two hrs from NYC, an hr. from Philadelphia and a half hr from the NJ border. So lots of people live here and commute to one of those areas for their jobs because they can make two to three times more and live in in an area where even though expensive is still less than where they work but ther traffic in this area is terrible. We are about 2 hrs from the ocean if you like the beach, there is a huge amusement park right here in the city and we still have some farmland around. Hugs, Jazz

Penn. is a very beautiful state too! But you're right about the traffic! Horrendous.

I live in Spokane Wa. Its not to costly to live here the mountains are close. There is a ski resort about 30 min. from tow we have four seasons. The summers don't get much more than 95 tops the winters can get cold down to 0 and we get snow some times alot.
I love it because we have some of the best golf in the country and it is cheaper than most places. I don't care for the cold but you can't have every thing.
