Harrisburg, PA. I like the topography and also it's proximity to the Northeast Corridor. Tallahassee is too isolated and not in my preferred half of Florida.

Bethesda, MD or Sandy Springs, GA

Bethesda has a much more appealing town center, but Sandy Springs is working on it.

Portland, ME or Olympia, WA?

ESL. At least it's right on the edge of a major city.

Providence or Manchester, NH?

I like both cities, but I'll say Providence since it's cheaper and imo more fun.

3-way
Cairo, IL , Monowi, NE or Barrow, AK?

Rank in order of most likely to least likely

Cairo, IL is the most likely. Much larger than Monowi and less remote with milder winters than Barrow.

Monowi, NE has a population of 1. Lol. Ranked it 2nd. Closest of the 3 places to people I know in MN.

Barrow, AK is the least likely. Very remote and the winters are long and bone chilling. Sun disappears for most of the winter there.

El Centro, CA or Faribault, MN ?

-Y'all must really hate Alaska, a semi-isolated city with one person & a blighted, sketchy, somewhat isolated city are apparently more appealing to live in than Alaska.
-Yes Alaska is isolated from the rest of the US and cold but is it really that bad?
-It seems like Alaska never wins on this thread.


Even though El Centro is not that far from San Diego and larger than Fairibault, I'll choose Faribault, MN since it's cheaper, closer to Minneapolis than El Centro is to San Diego, & looked nicer from the images I saw.

New England Showdown:
Portland, ME or Manchester, NH or Burlington, VT?

1) Manchester. Largest, close to Boston Metro.

2) Portland. Summers must be nice. Maine isn't too appealing to me otherwise.

3) Burlington. Seems like a nice town but too isolated and probably gets the most snow.


Anchorage, AK or Williston, ND?

Anchorage. The oil boom is over in Williston, and crime and cost of living are still very high there. Plus, I've never been to Anchorage.

Deadwood, SD or Eureka Springs, AR?

The climate in quaint Eureka Springs would be closer to my comfort zone. Both seem pretty nice but I'd stay south for year-round climate.


Amarillo TX or Pueblo CO?
