Chicago, IL or Washington, DC?
Chicago any day. More affordable and larger city.

Knoxville, TN or Toledo, OH?

Toledo, as it's just an hour from Detroit, 90 minutes from Cleveland and about four from Chicago. It's also cheaper and more affordable. It's also near Lake Erie, which keeps it nice and pleasant in the summer and is on the right side of the lake to avoid heavy lake effect snow, and it doesn't get the extreme cold/heat that is more common in the central/western Midwest. My accent better suits that region, too.

Johnson City, NY or Johnson City, TN?

Johnson City, NY or Johnson City, TN?
Johnson City, TN for its relative proximity to Cleveland/Chattanooga, TN, among others.

How about one of today's big college football matchups...Norman, OK or Tuscaloosa, AL?

Norman for me. The job I work with has a major secondary office there, and I despise anything from AL outside of Huntsville. I also like how OK has some "Big Sky" scenery nearby compared to the subtropical deciduous forests of AL. Even OKC's airport is better than Birmingham's, and its a longer drive there than Norman to OKC! Plus, for major league sports, OKC has the NBA and three hours away is Dallas, which has the NHL, which Atlanta, three hours from Tuscaloosa lacks. It's also right near the middle of historic Route 66 which is always a road I wanted to ride on. OKC also has a better airport than BHM in terms of destinations. It also gets more interesting weather with summers that aren't quite as persistently hot/humid and a better chance at snow each winter due to it being more continental and slightly further north. The tornado threats scare me though, since both areas are known for them.

The South Bronx, NYC vs. South Central LA (the area south of USC, north of the 105, and within a couple miles of the 110)

Neither is a great option, but if it's gotta be a hard knock life, then I'd probably be happier in LA.

Santa Barbara, CA or Laguna Beach, CA?

Tougher than I would've thought... Laguna Beach is one of the premier oceanfront communities in the USA while Santa Barbara seems like a wonderful place to live as well, while being a bit more down to earth and more city-like. Although I like Laguna Beach's access to the rest of the LA metro better, I think I'd fit in much better in Santa Barbara and would still be able to access LA's amenities at a satisfactory amount. Santa Barbara for me.

Cleveland, OH or Kansas City, MO?

Cleveland, OH or Kansas City, MO?
Um, Kansas City, despite its current lack of good rail transit beyond the starter streetcar line. Though this isn't the slam dunk I think some might think it is. Cleveland's nightlife district in Ohio City definitely gives Westport a run for its money, and it may come down to whether you're a rock 'n' roll aficionado or a World War I history buff. But I'll take the Country Club Plaza over Shaker Square.

Washington Crossing, Pa., or Concord, Mass.?

Concord, Mass, it's a beautiful town. It's not hard to imagine what it looked like in the late 18th century with a nice historic stock of real colonial housing. Most of the town is zoned as semi rural with plenty of acreage and a nice pastoral look. Swimming at Walden Pond is a nice benefit in the summer. All within the suburban belt of Boston, nice place.


Nantucket, MA or Great Barrington, MA?

Great Barrington is more up to my speed, considering it's landlocked. Colder winters and more snow too.

Redmond, WA or San Francisco, CA?

Redmond. San Franciscans have their heads in the clouds. Seattleites are more down to earth.

Ames, Iowa, or Rolla, Mo.?
