If you could move to anywhere within the US, where would you move to and why?

Well, I love Chicago, but I consider it one of my two homes in the US, so I guess I cant say Chicago...either Milwaukee, because it's a lot like Chicago and I'd still be close to my family, Nashville because it's just a nice city and I love country music, or probably Atlanta would be number one because I have some family there and I just absolutely love visiting Atlanta.

Eastern Tennessee. Of all the places I've been, that place is the best overall. What more could you ask for? Cheap cost of living, beautiful scenery, 4 seasons, close to many large cities, friendly people, and any store/restaurant you want.

The Northwest, either Washington, Idaho, or Montana. Awesome scenery, relaxed people, fresh air, decent prices.

New York City.

The most multicultural place in the country if not on the planet, and has all the shops, restaurants, and events that you will ever need. Oh, and three major airports Big grin

I'm actually thinking about Santa Fe, NM. It ranks fairly high overall. I love the Northwest, but I think 350 sunny days a year, 4 seasons and mountains nearby might be a nice change. Its also full of culture, and the people are very nice and fun. The main downside is real estate is fairly expensive, but I live in dowtown Seattle now, so I don't think that'd change much for me. The skiing is very close in proximity to the town as well. There's one place 16 miles outside of town, and then Taos is 50 miles away as well.

I'm right there with you, Damirc. I live in Northeastern NJ (Bergen County). The area I live in is great because you have access to all the features of NYC (plays, restaurants, shopping, etc.), yet the suburbs are extremely nice and are separated from the crazy lifestyle in Manhattan. Most of the people in my area are all very educated (college and grad school are the norm), it is generally wealthy, and we have the Jersey Shore just an hour or two away, depending on where you're going. The only downside of my area is that the cost of living is very high - Bergen County apparently has the third or fourth most expensive real estate in the nation, behind Orange County, CA.

I could never handle living in NYC - I like having a yard and peace and quiet too much.

Never been, but I hear it's beautiful. When I was working in the pharmaceutical industry in the early 1990's, I heard that there were Ph.D's asking people "Do you want fries with that?", since so many people wanted to live there, and the job market was tight.

As for me, I wouldn't trade Boston for anywhere else in the country. That said, I'd consider living in Europe for a while, say on an island in the Aegean sea, Amsterdam, or London. Another choice would be Reykjavik.

Boston, I think its the best city in the whole US. Tons of stuff to do, places to eat, and lots of diversity.

The company I work for has an office in Boston and if I get the chance to move there, I am gone.

Usairways757: Judging by your profile, there is a lot here for you. We do like to drink and hang out with friends, watch the Patriots, and slack off when we can. Just make sure you get a decent raise before coming here. An outhouse in Boston goes for a cool half a million.

boulder, co is an AMAZING place. spent my formative years there, and couldnt imagine a better place.

of course, its not exactly right for me, but it is fantastic.

i need the stimulation of the city life. i'd prefer living in SFO, over NYC.

I am happy here in San Francisco.

Other place I'd consider would be Duluth, Minnesota.
4 intense seasons, hills, forest, on a huge lake (practically an ocean), low cost of living, Democratic leaning state, close to Canada, lots of ice fishing, camping and other out door activities.

Probably Boston or Philly, so I'd have a chance to adapt to something inbetween of Europe and the US before moving somewhere else that's got less European influence.

I'd go with Manhattan...but only with deep pockets.
Admittedly most of my travel outside of Canada has not been to the USA, so I can't say I've been all over, but my trips to New York always make me consider moving there.

Colorado Springs...lived there for 4-5 years 20 something years ago and I'm still homesick for it. Left there for New Hampshire..figured I'd only be here for
a few years and go back..no sir..didn't work out.


If not Colorado Springs..Atlanta area or Eastern Tennessee..I have 2 sons
and a granddaughter in the Atlanta area, I like the area and it wouldn't take
much to get me there..right now my youngest stepdaughter is in highschool..when she's done..we're probably gone to Georgia.


Then again..I lived in Phoenix for a year and loved it there, too..

I live in the burbs northeast of ATL and I really don't have any complaints other than missing snow for skiing. If I had an unlimited bankroll I would ditch living in ATL in a heartbeat to move out to a Colorado mountain town. I could easily call Aspen home. My folks are retired and rent a place in Aspen each winter. (You cant beat the rides into or out of ase....or even ege.....talk about fun)

.....Crazy lifestyle of Manhattan my a**, just because you can't handle New York City and you need your yard and porch and EWR doesn't mean Manhattan is a crazy lifestyle!  Smile

I've been to many other cities and I go to college in Washington DC now, but I can not see living anywhere else but New York City when I'm older. It is the place to be in this world. It is the capital of the world.
