My husband. He left Charlotte NC for a small town in Ohio when he was 28.
He loved it. He only went back to Charlotte 3 times before he passed away at the age of 49. The small town was of course way slower paced, than a big city like Charlotte.

I only moved down South years after he died. I regret it, however I do not wish to move back to the climate in Ohio, but there are other places with a enjoyable climate without moving to the deep South. That's what I will do when I finally retire.

Moved from my native South to OH about two years ago - LOVE IT HERE!!!

Specifically, moved from Cobb County, GA (ATL suburb) to Powell, OH (Columbus,OH suburb). LOVE the people, the weather and the economy is not too bad either. Many friends and family in the South are suffering (or know someone who is) worse than we are here.

I miss the South BUT it has CHANGED so much that much of it i don't even notice anymore. Many small towns in OH remind me of what small towns in the South USED to be like.

Our family adores Columbus, OH and we want to stay as long as we can!

Originally from around Atlanta, GA, moved first to Idaho Falls (loved it) then to Denver (really Johnstown) CO, liked it but not as good as Idaho, from there to Iowa, which was OK spring and fall but had Georgia's summer with Idaho's winter temperatures but wetter, clunkier snow (didn't like it) now in Washington State, again OK but maybe not as good as Idaho.

Couple of old-time hunting writers who were always gurus of mine as a boy - Elmer Keith and Jack O'Connor - basically agreed only on the idea that hunting was a good activity, and Idaho.

My brother moved to Ohio and like it OK until, about teh second year of dealing with the snow. bascially having relative that live there :i thnik it was just that he was use to it. But my relatives mostly have since moved away as they retired so I guess as you age it gets harder also.

Default South to north

Moved from the "Deep South" to New England. My wife and kids love it while I've experienced adjustment problems. I would rather live in the south but my family comes first. Maybe later in life I will move back.
