Question New Jersey or North Carolina: Which one would you choose to live in?

If money wasn't an issue, nor were any other problems to hinder you from moving where you live now, which state would you prefer to live in? Why? Also, What part of that state would you move to?

Id choose NC because for the same price I could get a much bigger, better house over NJ. I would live in a small city without the traffic and crime problems.

Well, if money was not an issue, that would be a tough one to answer.

I'd have stayed in NJ if I could have afforded a single family home in Ocean City-a great beach town. Didn't have the million (plus) on hand for that. Now that I'm here in NC, though, nothing could move me back!

NJ gets a lot of negativity, but there are some fantastic places to live. The one negative no one brings up when they talk about things like cost of living, taxes, etc. is the fact that people in NJ isolate so much. I've had 7 homes in NJ. Only in one neighborhood did the children come out and play, and the parents actually knew eachother. Here, I have a hard time getting the children inside-no matter what the weather-and I know everyone on my street personally.

He said money is no issue. So you can afford any house in NJ in this imaginary thread.

A small NC city would be cute, but why don't you like medium cities? Do you like being in the middle of nowhere? I'm not insulting you, I'm sincerly asking.

Ahhh...western North Carolina! Love the mountains and rivers -- Maggie Valley area would be great. I do have a special place in my heart for Waynesville too since that's where my husband and I got married. We spent the first couple of nights afterwards in the Balsam Mountain Inn -- a beautiful and quaint inn from years-gone-by era.

I'd pick NC.

I'd like to be somewhere with tons of tall trees, great BBQ restaurants, thick warm air and thick "hick" accents.

I'd pick NC. Awesome 4-season climate. Great people. I love where I live now (suburban Charlotte). About every other time I'm in the grocery store, someone else or I will just start up a conversation (I love that! People are very friendly). Another great place would be the Asheville area. Sooooooo beautiful !!!!!
