Seattle. Green like my hometown, winters milder than its latitude would lead you to believe thanks to the Japan Current, not blazing hot in the summer, and when the sun's out (five days a year, I hear), absolutely gorgeous. It doesn't look too shabby in gray skies either, and I know I would have to get used to them. Great dining scene too, something I've never heard anyone say about Phoenix.

Indianapolis, Ind., or Columbus, Ohio?

Indianapolis, Ind., or Columbus, Ohio?
Columbus, largely because it's in Ohio, and not Indiana. Columbus does have a fair bit of activity, and affordable housing, but I probably wouldn't live there, either.

Minneapolis/St. Paul or Sacramento?

Minneapolis/St. Paul or Sacramento?
I think I'd be happy in either but it would be an easier transition to Minneapolis. I've spent a third of my life in the Upper Midwest. Plus our kids play hockey.

San Diego, CA or Charleston, SC?

Key West, FL. It's connected to the mainland U.S., better winters, & no state tax.

Harrison, NJ/Kearny, NJ or New Brunswick, NJ?

Harrison/Kearny for its proximity to downtown Newark and NYC proper.

Staten Island, NY or Yonkers, NY?

Staten Island. I'd love to be able to commute to work by ferry for free, and the Staten Island Ferry ride is one of the most enjoyable in the country.

Montclair, N.J., or Mission Hills, Kan.?

Mission Hills. I know nothing about these towns, but would rather be in the Kansas City area than the New York City area.

Tampa, FL vs. Portland, OR?
