I guess Williston, North Dakota is paradise then, eh? 40% population growth over the last 5 years.

You couldn't pay me enough to move to Atlanta.

Coming from Miami I know all about heat and humidity. It blows but I told the bf we have one more year here and then we are going east coast again. Maybe not FL but maybe back to NC or somewhere in GA

I moved here from SC. If we ever moved back there or the east coast, I am dreading going back to the heat and humidity. Chances are we might after a few years though, a promotion is in line and their corporate office is back east, though not SC. A main factor of relocating again is related to this thread, we were outbid a few times and lost interest in this highly competitive market. I am staying out of the market because somewhere I would like to live is too expensive and we aren't even sure this is were we'd like to plant roots. Love it here, though it may just be temporary.

I love it here in the Denver Metro area and Colorado in general but if I ever could make it work we would move back to San Diego in a heart beat. Although it is getting expensive here my money still goes farther here than it does in Southern California. For now it is a great vacation spot twice a year.

Denver has a lot cheaper housing than Southern California

its winters are far more temperate than the mid-west; and Atlanta summers. . no f'n way I would consider that humidity death trap mold fest.

to each their own.

For the record, Atlanta has a better climate than Denver (not must my opinion, but according to statistics.) I'm not trying to bash Denver (I was born there), but only to show some perspective.

well said, to each their own.

Denverites, enjoy your freakish May and Septemer snow storms, frequent damaging hail, radon, expansive soil, and all of the rest of the lovely things to boast about your town. Well, the mountains are pretty backdrop at least

Oh, for goodness sake, I grew up in a God-forsaken southwest Ohio city not far from where a F5 tornado wiped out an entire town, suffocating summer humidity is relentless, and winter ice storms take down power lines and bring the entire place to a standstill for a week at a time. But the fall leaves are pretty, and you can buy a 100-year-old death trap of a "house" in the ghetto for $5k.

Denver is freakin' paradise!
