Well here are my nominees:
-Denver (currently live here, great state, great teams (except the rockies and kind of the nuggets), greatest scenery in the country with the Denver Skyline and Rocky Mountains, one of the cleanest cities out there, no shortage of big homes (however, be aware of really no property))
-New York City (born and raised there,do I have to mention anything.)

Denver is all right, like yanks said, scenery wise, but northeast arkansas, is perfect. quiet rural life, excellent bass fishing all summer, not a real care in the world. My place to get away from it all.

If you can put up with the heat for about 3 months out of the year, I would tell you Houston, Texas. Houston does have a pretty bad reputation as being dirty, bad quality of air, etc. Where I live in particular (Kingwood) it's actually really nice. Very quiet, clean, nice homes, parks. Plenty of sports teams to go and watch. Astros should be fun this year!
Another city would be Minneapolis. Lived there for 4 years. Only draw back. Too damn cold in the winter.

Austin, TX. Great food, great music, in the Hill Country, San Antone is only an hour or so away (depending on traffic) if you get the need to visit a theme park or go shopping on the Riverwalk, THE University of Texas Longhorns are nearby, Texas state politics, Dell's HQ, Schlotsky's HQ, the LBJ Presidential Library, Trudy's Mexican Food, real Texas country, and Marble Falls and other beautiful areas of the Hill Country are just a hop, skip, and jump away.
Also like Destin, FL; Colorado Springs; Boston; and, of course, Midland and Dallas!!!

Hawaii or South Florida or Bel Air, Hollywood Hills, Beverly Hills,Malibu,Santa Monica, Marina Del Rey, Westwood or West LA, Hollywood (not the skanky part) Hancock Park, the beach cities south of LAX...and if you must choose between the states of Montana and the Valley....I guess the Valley wins. Oh yeah...parts of San Diego.

Hello to all that is from Detroit, or likes Detroit. Believe it or not I'm a fan of Detroit. I know it has its bad areas and crime is pretty high (Usually in the top 5 along with Atlanta, St. Louis, & Newark) but I have always enjoyed my trips to Detroit. I guess I like the whole "Motor City" attitude.
Alright I'll shut up now, I just thought I would share that with you.

I'd say some place like Charleston, SC would. LOTS to do, close to the beach but not TOO far from mountains (about 2 hours away). It gets nice and warm, but you still get the sea breeze. Lots of good restaurant, good tourism industry, decent colleges in town (The Citadel and College of Charleston), lots of history...beautiful architecture. Aviation-wise? Home to Charleston AFB, which has C-17s based there and occasionally sees C-5s and C-141s.
South Carolina - too small to be its own country, too big to be a mental asylum.

A small town in Washington state called BELLINGHAM! I have the choice of living in Vancouver BC Or the USA, I choose to live in Canada but If I had to live in The USA It would definitely be Bellingham (except for the traffic on Meridian) Other than that it is a quaint little town!

I'm a Noo Yawkah born and bred and it is the capital of the world. No other city even remotely like it. I think it is the best place to live in the US even if it costs a small fortune to actually do that.
Outside of NYC,
San Francisco Bay Area- most beautiful city in the States. If it weren't so damned expensive....
Seattle - great scenery, pretty downtown
Philadelphia - pretty downtown, fair amount of culture, good ethnic mix, hot babes at Penn, much better than its reputation.
Note that I can't bear hot weather, so the sunbelt is out for me, unless it is Southern California, but I do kind of like Atlanta.
Dishonorable mention - Binghamton NY, a miasma of despair. Just take about 500 sleeping pills and be done with it. It'll be quicker.
I may be ugly. I may be an American. But don't call me an ugly American.
