The Upper Midwest, West, or New England. Cities like Seattle, Minneapolis, Portland, Burlington, are higher on my list due to the fact that I don't like much heat, humidity, or a brutal sun angle that is found in far too much of the US at low latitude locations.

OP used the same regions that the US Census uses. Since no method will please everyone, this is probably the best way to divide the US.

Frankly I'd like to have a word with the U.S census. Putting Maryland and Delaware in the same category s Texas and Oklahoma but not in the same category as Pennsylvania and New Jersey is just plain silly. Have these people actually spent time in any of these states? Pretty sure people from Maryland who move to Texas are still considered "damn Yankees" Doubt the same would be true if someone moved there from North Carolina or even areas in Virginia.

Thank you. While I kind of think the Mid-Atlantic should just be its own small region. I don't see how anyone could say Maryland and Delaware have more in common with Texas than they do Massachusetts.

Especially since Wilmington, DE is a short drive away from Philadelphia, PA.

The Midwest or South... If you can find a decent paying job you can live like a king. The west is mostly really flat, brown, and boring. The parts that arn't boring are quite crowded and expensive.

If it weren't for health issues, probably the northeast, since I am most culturally comfortable with that area. As things stand, it will be the west. Incidentally, I think what's being defined here as the west contains so much variety that it gives it an unfair advantage in this poll.

Very tough to choose between the Northeast and West.
