Brookings, Oregon

One of the most scenic coastal areas, and the biggest coast redwoods are about 1/2 hour away.

Wow. Brookings, Oregon looks gorgeous!

If I could pick anywhere in the U.S. to live, it would certainly be a hard choice, that's for sure.

Las Vegas, NV
Miami Beach, FL
Chicago, IL

..are my top 3.

i'd live where i can be most myself and meet someone good for me. i just moved from western north carolina. unfortunately it was a little (well, alot) too slow for me. there's way too much poverty and it's a very dismal and negative place. yes, it looks beautiful. the scenery is nice. i'm a realist. i'm interested in the people factor. so, i moved to the denver, co. area. the altitude calms my rh symptoms, the people are health conscious and kind and the weather is great.

I would move back to Seattle I miss my apartment in belltown. It was great always somthing going on the energy was amazing. I loved all the water I biked everywhere.Then I would want a house in the sanjuan islands so i could take a ferry out to my house from seattle. I would have secluded island life and when I got bored I would stay in Seattle.

East coast all the way --> Washington, D.C. to Boston is the most urban, developed and historical stretch in the U.S. And it will always be home for me.

It will be very hard for any of us to compete with the Pacific NW. The further north you go , the better it gets. BC and SW Alaska is the top of the list, for should be , for anyone..... Not always practical , but otherwise , well , having a home on a remote Island in the San Juan's , or on the Olympic Pen. or Sunshine Coast/ Inland Passage....well those of you who have been there can understand.

If I was looking to live in a fantastic natural setting, then PacNW or Colorado would be my choices.

I ruled out long ago the Pacfic NW , mostly because of the time zone , and distance from the Midwest, for business reasons.... Nature wise , you are right on , its very hard to compare with anywhere else.... I found the best alternative here in the Upper Michigan, namly Marquette County.... Three years and not counting, we love it here. great place to retire. With Lake Superior at our door step , its a lot like Pacfic NW , and or coastal Maine.
