They did when I lived down the road. Wonderful people. So broad-minded.

Beautiful in the fall,happy in the spring,funny in the summer and melancolic in the winter.

Please,some ideas?? And dont say anything about sperling best places or money magazine.Just for people that have been living in one of those places.

THAAAANKS!!!
Isn't Fresno perfect?

You didn't define "low" taxes, or "little bit" of snow or "veeery low" crime, or "affordable" houses, or "close" national park or "beautiful" or "happy" or "funny" or "melancolic" seasons. There is an ocean and a lake.

Fresno must be perfect.

now, as for best place in the good ole USA to live; there are so many, most places are as good as one chooses to make them. Because I hate humidity I can not choose anywhere in Florida though I think there are lots of good parts of Fl and I wouldn't choose the Carolinas for the same reason: I would go with somewhere north of Albuquerque (maybe Sante Fe) Possibly I would put some areas on Colorado on my list as well. Of course none of these places have beaches. I am not certain any one place totally fits the OPs discription of perfect. Ocean areas normally are not low cost of living and always have high humidity plus little or no snow. Areas with the seasons will not have beaches. If I were to choose a place in Ca that has most of the requirements it would be Placerville or Paradise probably.

Minus the humidity and the ocean there are lots of awesome areas right here in the Ozarks, both So Mo and NWA AR. The cost of living is low, the scenery wonderful, no ocean but because of the lakes, there are lots of beaches and we have all the season changes without any being savere.

Does "perfect" mean lots of jobs too? If so, how many places mentioned above are perfect? People don't live in high cost, high density areas for nothing.

Everyone's idea of 'Shangri La' is going to be different. Personally, I want to be near the ocean, NO SNOW, low humidity and lots of natural area surrounding me. Since I like to fly, good weather nearly all year round with almost no real severe changes is a plus. I believe I've found that in San Luis Obispo.

Yeah, it's a bit expensive (although I live in Los Osos, so it's a big more manageable) and the college kids are irritating, but in general I can't ask for a more lovely area. I have Montana De Oro state park up the street, the Elfin Forest in my backyard, it's quiet (well...except for my douchebag neighbor, but even that's tolerable for the most part) and very dog and pedestrian friendly.

I don't do 'nightclubs' and I'm not a huge fan of 'shopping' and I prefer taking a walk by the estuary to dressing up and going bar hopping.

So yes, I have essentially found my perfect place.
