South has a lot to offer and is my first pick. Followed closely by the west, then distantly the northeast, with midwest following closely.
Having relatives from both sides of my family comment on this, all of whom have lived there for 40 years, I would not consider DC to be the south. Today it is part of the Bos-Wash corridor, or the Northeastern seaboard. It has a pace, culture, dialect, and demographics I would expect to find in Philadelphia vs. Richmond.

Maybe off topic a tad, but what kind of state is Florida, really? I mean, is it like Maryland's always been: a Southern state, occupied by Yankees??

East Coast... we have great beaches, we have the highest % of educated people, the states with the highest income are all eastern states. We have variety of weather- it's not hot all the time or cold all the time, the architecture is very european-style. It's just great living here- northeast especially.

Boston is my fave city in all of America. It is so beautiful, I just feel like I cant have a bad day in Boston. (I live in NY and it's full of grumpy people lol)

Yup... home to the fattest people in the country. What an honor!

West coast all day long......and this is coming from a native of the east coast by way of NC....The lifestyle and way of life is just totally different than the east coast...People here "live to work" as opposed the west coast, whom "work to live".

Hmmmm....this is a tough one. Although I was born and raised in the Northeast, lived in the Southeast and now live in the Southwest I can't decide. Love the culture and history in the North and Southeast, but love the lifestyle in the West. Hmm....

The West Coast puts every other coast to shame with it's scenery, weather, geography, and lifestyle.
