The problem with holding vegas up as an example is that if every place were like vegas it wouldn't work at all. Vegas only functions because it is so far outside the norm from the rest of the country in terms of personal freedoms.

Depending on how long you've lived in California, you may have been indoctrinated instead...

Either the Portland, OR or St. Louis Metro areas. I currently live in the St. Louis area and it is really nice here.

Then good-luck paying high state taxes on top of federal taxes

In Nevada, I don't pay state tax That gives me a bit more purchasing power to buy things whatever I want.

San francisco.

-Gorgeous, intelligent human beings
-Miserable human wastes of life, crack-heads and speed freaks. (SF is really hit or miss i suppose.)
-Music scene
-People seem to be more confident with who they are, and are far more expressive(From my personal experiances anyway.)
-Endless perspective, creativity, art & culture
-Architecture(Victorian style homes)

I wouldn't mind living in Seattle though, i dig the foggy rainy weather 24/7 thing.

Just remember.

The easier the state is to draw, the harder it is to live in.

Live in Northern Idaho. Lovely place to live. Plenty of water, plenty of electricity, plenty of everything. Plus, lower cost of living than the Washington neighbors, so if you get a job in Washington and live in Idaho it's minimum wage heaven.

I guess it depends on your taste.

I'd be bored as hell living in somewhere as Northern Idaho.

If i live in a small town it's gotta be near a big city.

Coeur d' Alane and Spokane are big cities.

So you know...

Spokane is obviously in Washington but it's right on the border with Coeur d' Alane (Very lovely place) and a smaller city between them.

Yet more information for anyone that wants to settle in the Northwest. Bellingham, Washington is a nice place too. I liked it.

Edit: Oh, if you love winter and wintersports... Yeah you should probably come up here. Plenty of places to go! =D

Because of the fact that tons of my friends are there and that it's a place that rich people live.

THey know that if they stop acting normally and stop buying things, saving up money to use in a bad economy, is actually why the economy would go down. So, while the rest of the country is in dispair, it has an almost perfect economy where the unemployment rate is very near to 0%. Which means that I will have a job and that I will live in atleast a good place.
I'm gonna have to disagree with living there...It's near Microsoft = lots of technerds = lots of males = disaster!

This is a pretty strange thread because the answer is going to depend on what is important to the reader.

In general, I prefer almost anywhere on the US West Coast with each portion of the coast having advantages and disadvantages.

In general, where ever I would live would need:
1) a superb mass transit system
2) a diversity of job sectors (no "one company" town).
3) access to well-funded education from K-12 through university
4) cultural and racial diversity (heck, I enjoy festivals from any part of the world).
5) a balanced tax system that supported a safety net system of services.

As you can see - basically nowhere satisfies all these requirements on the West Coast (or anywhere else). Portland, OR comes pretty close too meeting all five but is far too provincial for its size and a bit too "white bread" though its improving.

Now thats one reason I love living in Milwaukee. We have a multitude of festivels all the time it seems. Music, cultural, you name it. Not to say other places don't have a lot of festivals, but it seems there is always a great variety around here. In fact I'm going to a Jazz festival soon and probably an Asian cultural festival.

4. A place where the arts and sciences flourish

5. A place where the age ratio is balanced out


yep...and its a bit hard to find places that meet the first 3 here in america XD
You can't find trees in America? Where do you live, a basement?

That is not what he said.

He said that he'd prefer to live somewhere where decent forests were within reach. Ever been to Los Angeles? If the forest must be within an hour's drive, then I could make a very long list of cities which fail that requirement.

I recommend Compton city, along with Brooklyn, Bronx, Harlem, Atl. City, and Miami.

Lol I'm playin'.

In all seriousness, I don't know much American geography, but..

From what I can obviously guess, uhh Arizona, Washingston state, Utah, N/S Dakota and stuff? The obviously less populated areas.

Or there's always Alaska



But honestly, forget America.

Canada has all the land you need! Come over to the dark side. We got cookies.

I would say that DC is a great place to live in (opinion is completely biased since I live here). It's not a big city like New York, it's also called an arbor city b/c of Rock Creek and Chevy Chase, and it has great neighborhoods like Dupont and Georgetown. The people are great and intelligent, and you'll never see a Walmart (for some reason i developed a phobia with walmart)

Frankly, I don't know why people wouldn't want to live here except that we have no representation .

Anyways, DC is a great city, but I'm ready to live in other great cities which I will visit this fall.

It takes about half an hour to get to the outskirts of New York City, which is pretty much surrounded by forests. Hell, most of the country is pretty much untouched by civilization. It's not like a tree is something that's hard to find.

It really does suck how some old guys from Mississippi have say on what goes on in your city (This is really happening right now)

Which neighborhood you live in? I live in Fairfax County, right at the very edge where it meets Alexandria City Proper
