Allentown, Pa., or Tulsa, Okla.?
Allentown... mainly because I think the Lehigh Valley would be a better fit for me culturally than Oklahoma. Proximity to Philly, Northern NJ, and NYC is a big plus too.

Dover, DE or Dover, NH?

Dover, DE or Dover, NH?
Good one. They both have their advantages, with Dover NH being an hour and a half from Boston & half an hour from Portsmouth. Dover DE is under 2 hrs from Philly and Baltimore, & an hour away from Rehoboth Beach. Even though Dover NH has the advantage in terms of proximity to the cities I mentioned, I choose Dover, DE because of the much lower cost of living & no sales tax.

Speaking of Dover...
Dover, MA or Portsmouth, NH?

I know a dear older couple who are friends with my parents in law who live in Dover, MA. Pretty area west of Boston. But I'll take Portsmouth. A little more affordable and closer to the ocean.

Tampa, FL or Minneapolis, MN?

Tampa. At my age, I have no patience for cold weather, and there is tremendous momentum occurring in Tampa right now.

Natchez, MS or Beaufort, SC?

Definitely Beaufort. Natchez has an abundance of historical charm, but it is in a much more isolated, economically depressed region compared to coastal South Carolina.

Winchester, VA or Westminster, MD?

Winchester, VA. I travel through there a good bit an really like the town and surrounding area.

Super Bowl match-up: Boston, MA or Los Angeles, CA?

Los Angeles. Even though it has terrible traffic and Boston is more urban & historical, I like LA's culture and geography more, plus it's more of a different feel as I'm used to the East Coast. Also it has a better metro, weather, nightlife, and economy.

Last year's Super Bowl Matchup:
Boston, MA(Even though the Patriots play in a nearby town) or Philadelphia, PA?

I'd pick Philly. This is a great comparison, in a good way. Two great cities and metros. But Philly's much lower cost of living and really close proximity to both NYC and DC, puts them over the top for me.

Atlanta, GA or Seattle, WA?

Atlanta because it is a larger metro and is affordable.

Indianapolis, IN or Nashville, TN?
