Salida, CO. Small town with plenty of outdoor recreation and cultural opportunities. The town is unique in that it remains small, yet has a booming feel to it that is usually associated with larger, growing areas. On the downside, it's my understanding that the job situation is not the best and housing prices outpace wages, but that can be said for many areas n Colorado. Advisable to secure employment first, no matter where you end up.

Thank you so much guys. This has been really helpful 👍 lots of places that didn't come up when searching on my own. This will definitely help us narrow down our options and take some new things into consideration.

You rang? The skiing kind of sucks, but what with global warming the skiing will soon suck everywhere. I recommend Berea, Kentucky. The price is right. It's near the mountains and scenic and it's a college town. You wouldn't have to worry about it being "too alpine," and while Berea has its share of tourists, it's certainly more "real" than a town like Aspen or Telluride. Good bluegrass music and it's my understanding that the local shine is not bad at all. Go East, young man!

My wife and I actually have been to Berea, KY and honestly can recommend it as a cool place. It's between the small city of Lexington, KY and the Daniel Boone National Forest. Lexington is known for beautiful horses and fast women, or is it fast horses....oh well, and the area is also WELL KNOWN for Bourbon)

I've been to Berea, OH, and it's a cool place too, near Cleveland and Lake Erie, but that's a different story for a different forum....

Berea is one of the ten most interesting places in Kentucky. (The others are Lexington, Louisville & outside it, Bowling Green, Bardstown and the Land Between the Lakes, Frankfort, Lake Cumberland / Dale Hallow and Morehead.) It is also a town of 15,000 in a county of 83,000 in a metro area of 450,000. The 2,500 foot hills have plenty of up & down hiking, sandstone cliffs & boulders and life (including secret pot patches) but it is the east and there is a road and houses at the bottom of almost all of the hills and up the sides of many of them. A key to living in Berea would be an interest in Appalachian culture. Not essential but it would probably help. Without that interest, less reason to be there.

Oh it depends on the OP's dream details. KY has good fishing, decent hunting (including on a restored elk herd of 5,000), back roads, small towns. Winter isn't much usually in KY but you can get more in the NC mountains or West Virginia. Environmental science jobs? There are some, certainly great need and probably less competition. Sometimes more threat too though.


Peas grow well there but aren't grown in large commercial export quantities. For pea-picking (by harvester on thousand acre tracks) North Dakota is king.
