As for me...

I live just outside Atlanta, GA and while I really like the hospitable and friendly people and the food (fried chicken ) I just can't stand the heat... This year most of the country has been nailed with snowstorms but we haven't had any. In fact last night there may have been snow (it was on the roofs). Don't even get me started on the furnace that is summer. And it's humid too which makes it worse. We've been here too many times and visited here so many times that at this point I want something different.

I want colder weather so I'd love to move to Kansas City, which should be similar enough to feel like here but different. It's also got a relatively low cost of living, as far as I can tell and fantastic BBQ . For some reason my heart seems inexorably drawn to Missouri - it just seems "right" somehow so I desperately want to move there.

Aside from that I'm very interested in colder climes - Madison, WI and St Paul, MN to be precise. Beautiful old historic homes in the Twin Cities especially - i'd love to live in one . Find a nice, walkable neighborhood with nearby amenities and easy transport perhaps...

Aside from that maybe the Pacific Northwest somewhere. Still looking into other cities which could work, but I know it has to be colder than here... Cold winters with guaranteed snow in a quiet, out-of-the-way state, friendly people, a grocery store in walking distance, and nearby amenities... one day, hopefully...

sigh--my ideal locale--minus winter weather and having only cows,chickens,etc as neighbors

I don't like my town at all. I am fairly close to Memphis, where I spend my weekends, but I'm not particularly crazy about Memphis either. I do like the climate and I have no problem with really hot summers (I like being warm). I would never, ever live somewhere with a harsh winter. I actually would enjoy moving back to AL, where I grew up.
I would really love to live somewhere close to the beach!
Both my family and my husband's live in the Memphis area though, and we would hate to be far from them.

Whatever my needs are at the moment. I'm getting to the point that I need to be able to live without driving, finding an ideal place is the next challenge

Glendale, Arizona, an inner-ring suburb of Phoenix. Summers are hot, but I'm a busy person, and I just keep going!

I hear you about the heat and humidity, same here in Florida...I'm looking to escape it real soon...Just to let you know that Kansas City, Mo can get pretty hot & humid in the summer, but for a much shorter period of time, it is a nice place...I, too would like to relocate to a nice walk-able city/town with much cooler temps...

best of luck to you in your journey...

I'm in Florida and I hate it here. It's not the heat, it's the humidity! I can only enjoy the outdoors for 4 months of the year, the rest I'm seeking AC to escape the humidity. It puts me in a bad mood.
Not sure where I'd like to move, was thinking Washington.
