Well wow!!! Thanks for the responses. I have to admit I live next door to the dakotas and I have never been in either state. Not too good huh? I should get to know my neighbors. I know they are as cold as Mn.

To a degree poor people in warm climates are often deemed, or appear, "laid back." Particularly if it's poor, but not high crime. So maybe El Paso? I mean it has a fairly high poverty rate, but the crime rate is low and it's presumably hot.

Another thing often deemed "slow" is small towns in the South that drew few migrants. So maybe Winona, Mississippi is laid back.

Or maybe Lahaina, Hawaii. It has a fair number of people commuting by bicycle and it's in Hawaii which has an image, if maybe a false one, of being relaxed.

I was going to suggest Minnesota, but then I noticed your location bar.

How about Northern Michigan? It's peaceful, slow-paced, and friendly - just bring your own job. North Dakota would also be a good choice.

Louisville, KY. A very laid back city. Even the Downtown seems sort of laid back.

Well growing up in a very rural area and had to walk to country school. (1 teacher for 6 grades) was very laid back and now I live in the big city. I can honestly say I hate it. I am laid back but living here is just too fast paced for me. I would love to change it but I am just plain chicken,

I grew up in Southern NJ, which is definitely laid back. I'd venture to say that North Carolina is also fairly laid back from what I've heard from friends who moved down there.
