    If you could live anywhere in the continental US, where would you live?

    I'm just wondering what great places there are to live and why they are great.

    In my current job I travel quite a bit, but I have an opportunity to take a job in what seems like a nice city which requires very little travel. There are a billion other factors, but it made me curious as to what other people's opinion of a 'great place to live' was?

    Anywhere South of Tennessee,
    Anywhere in the Mountains
    Anywhere on the West Coast (except LA)
    Anywhere on the East Coast
    Basically, NOT in the Midwest...

    Minnesota in the summers. Michigan in the fall (Michigan has AWESOME falls). North Carolina the rest of the year.

    Evergreen, Colorado. It is in the foothill of the mountains. Its less than an hour from some resorts and about an hour and a half from Vail. It is also a short drive down into Denver.

    I pretty much love it here in South Charlotte, NC.

    I have lived in Orlando and in Pittsburgh. I enjoyed both cities...a lot actually. Orlando was 14 hours away from home so it allowed for me to experience being away from nearly everything that I "know". Pittsburgh is so much like Cincy that most of the time I was there I didn't feel any different.

    This is almost word-for-word what I was going to post. I lived there a while and loved it out there.

    Los Altos California would be my first choice.

    I live in my second choice.

    This seems like as good a place as any to bring this up. The wife and I have toyed with the idea of making a big move to California (kind of have to find jobs first though). So far, we've only looked at the area just north of San Diego, possibly Carlsbad or Encinitas.

    Anyone here ever lived in that area and have an opinion?
