I dream of living in Vancouver. I love that city. I would also love to live in a place facing Windansea in La Jolla or anywhere in Del Mar.

Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, Burlington Vermont, Portland Maine, Durango, CO. Those are some of my current dream places.

Denver, CO

I like the live and let live attitude, I like the more relaxed outdoors-y vibe, I like the size of the city and I like the people I meet here.

As for weather, I like low humidity and hate rain. I do well in all temperatures as long as it's not extremely humid and love snow and sun. Just hate the rain, and hate gloomy days.

As for terrain I love the mountains and the different options they bring. It really is the great outdoors. We do a ton of hiking, jeeping, horseback riding etc. and love our options here.

Seems like Denver fits the bill don't it?

The only thing I miss - I always lived in the ocean and will forever miss having an ocean nearby.

Since this is a dream, can I split my time between Vail and Key West?

I mean technically you can split time between Mars and the Marianas Trench if you like It's YOUR dream after all!

This is true. A slightly more serious answer would be the San Francisco area. I'd like to try that out for a while, but wouldn't want to go there unless money was no object, and that's mostly for the food choices.

I used to live there. The food is GREAT! But if you want to go hiking you have to stand in line at any point in the trail where there is restricted flow like at any place where you climb up or go up rock stairs. And I mean you literally stand in line. There is just too many people in the bay area for the available outdoor activities that are convenient to drive to.

Then I moved to CO and was amazed that sometimes I would see no one on a trail. Not one single solitary person. Then I got a dog because being by myself on the trail all the time with the mountain lions and the bears was kind of creepy.

I love Denver. I really do. But like David A. said, I don't feel 100% ME here yet. Maybe it's because I've only been here 7 months, but I find myself longing for Phoenix again. I had lots of friends there, so I'm sure that's part of it. I also miss the beautiful winters there. That said, I've always felt most at home in the PNW whenever I've visited. I don't know why, but maybe it's all the green, the scenery, and the laid back vibe (even moreso than here). I find it stunningly beautiful. I'd live in Portland or Seattle in a heartbeat if given the chance. The only thing stopping me would be distance to family and the fact I don't really know anyone there. That's something important to consider, no doubt.

That said, I'm definitely going to give it a few more years at least before I decide if this is where I'm going to stay for a while. I do love the mountains being only 20 minutes away and all the opportunities for recreation that entails.
