Portland, ME or Waukegan, IL?
Portland, Maine, it's scenic and has some charm.

Stowe, Vermont vs Brattleboro, Vermont

Brattleboro because it is a nice area.

Raleigh, NC or Scottsdale, AZ?

Princeton, but I'd probably drown in all the charm.

Providence, R.I., or Columbus, Ohio?

Love both, but I'd probably go with Providence for its Old World charm and proximity to so much more.

Santa Barbara, CA or Naples, FL?

Santa Barbara... I prefer the milder weather, location between the ocean and mountains, and proximity to the LA metro. Culturally I generally prefer CA to FL as well.

Here's a 3-way battle for you:

Florence, KY or Florence, SC or Florence, AL?

Florence, KY

It is in the Cincinnati metro area (just 12 miles from Cincinnati). In a larger region than the other two cities and has much more to do and offer. Near a major airport. For a major metro area, the cost of living is reasonable.

Albuquerque, NM or Fresno, CA?

Neither quite honestly, which both have a bit too much of a tourist-dependent economy, but the lesser of the two "evils" for me is New Bern. It's like a mini-Annapolis, MD, but you don't have a major city nearby (Raleigh is two hours away, compared to 30 for Baltimore and 45 for Washington, DC). Swansboro is just another little fishing village. Good to visit, not so good to make a full-time living. I'd also prefer either GA/N FL or the mid-Atlantic for retirement living if I had a choice due to less of a threat from hurricanes.

Fort Bridger, WY or Fort Hall, ID?
