Guntersville is great. I've been to 48 states and 7 provinces, and I like it right here in NWGA.

Alpine, Englewood Cliffs, Hoboken and Montclair are just some of the places in NJ.

I'd have multiple homes, in these places:

1. New Jersey (Central, Monmouth Cty probably) - nothing huge, just simple and nice and easy, and close to a shore house as well (so that's 2 Jersey homes I guess, lol)
2. Los Angeles, probably Santa Monica - one of the condos near the beach, in the south part of SM near Venice Beach, so I could live out my fantasy of being Jack Tripper, lol (I lol, but I'm not kidding! lol)
3. South Florida, probably Palm Beach to Fort Lauderdale area - a beachfront townhouse
4. A studio apartment in Manhattan, probably in the midtown area, just a place to crash for those nights I'm out on the town or want to spend a day or two in the city
5. Cabin in the woods near Tahoe
6. Cabin in the Northern Adirondacks - start with a small cabin and then build a bigger one myself
7. A small condo in Palm Springs or Indian Wells, or even a house in the desert near Desert Hot Springs (other side of I-10 from the desert cities)
8. A ranch on a good 50+ acres (preferably 100+ acres) in the Cal-Nev-Ari area, in the mojave desert, "off the grid", with solar and wind power, water supply (preferably spring/well) on property, Satellite TV/Internet, and cell phone service. I would have a home on there but I'd work on building my own add-ons and other buildings (like bungalows and cabins for guests, as well as a big garage/storage building), and one day this complex would be used to host events like special days for sick and handicapped kids, or for inner-city youths, or for the elderly or infirmed, as well as for Church groups - really for anyone who really needs the break to come and enjoy the ranch, I will accept almost any reason to have a group out to the ranch.

**I would also consider building a cabin in the woods just outside Seattle
***I would be visiting Las Vegas and Montreal a lot but wouldn't need homes in either, since I have tons of family in Montreal to stay with and in Vegas I would just stay at hotels, why bother with having a home there

There, now you have my greediest of dreams laid out for all to see, lol...

But it's nice to dream, right?

I would pick exactly where I am. Why do I think that? Because we did have a choice to go anyplace in the US, and this place suits our family best.
