Mobile. More Southern charm than Birmingham, and it's just off the Gulf.

Brunswick, Me., or New Brunswick, N.J.?

New Brunswick... While NB as a whole may have more quality of life issues, the area by the university in particular seems alright, and I'd prefer to live in a larger, more urban region with a warmer climate.

Washington Island, WI or Beaver Island, MI?

Washington Island, WI. Wisconsin is a very beautiful state.

Harlan, KY or East St. Louis, IL?

East St.Louis, by the St.Louis border. More amenities.

Let's Do The most recent places that I've lived:

Rahway, NJ or Somerset, NJ?

I’ll take Rahway. It has a little downtown area and good train service. Love some of the older Queen Anne and Victorian homes too.

South of the Border, SC or Wall Drug, SD?

Wall Drug, SD

Lol. Those are two kitschy, but popular tourist stops. Wall is very small, but it is reasonably close to Rapid City (55 miles), Deadwood, the Black Hills and Mt. Rushmore. I also know people in neighboring Minnesota where I grew up and am familiar with the region. Were it not for that, I may have chosen South of the Border, SC despite the heat and humidity.

I'll copy ASJackson814: the two most recent places I've lived...

Salinas, CA or Sunnyvale, CA?

Salinas for me, assuming I don't have to commute anywhere.

Copying the pattern, two most recent homes:
Jersey City, NJ or Montclair, NJ?

Having now been to both, Montclair. It's one of those suburban downtowns that's hipper than it looks.

I'm going to have to narrow my focus to participate in this variant, and I'm editing out two neighborhoods in order to get a city vs. city comparison:

Watertown, Mass., or Philadelphia's Germantown section?

Germantown. Historic and well-located, but not overly gentrified...which I like.

Carrying on the current theme, Atlanta or Miami?
