I really just love the tri-state area.
If money was no issue, I'd probably go with Hoboken, NJ.

Other cities/towns I'd love to live in (If I could afford it)-
Tarrytown, NY
Stamford, CT
Little Italy (Manhattan)
~

If I had to be realistic.

Syracuse
Baltimore
New Haven
Philadelphia

I basically don't want to be too far from family (the majority of my family is in the tri state area). If I didn't care-

Denver
Toronto
Minneapolis

Sometimes (usually on my way back from the beach) , I think if i were to go back and start over again I should have settled in Greenville SC, because it is close to the mountains and that much closer to the beach. Plus I lovelovelove that waterfall in the middle of town. But I've driven around a bit and never saw a neighborhood that called out to me. From reading the sign, I think I would have wanted to live in the shanty mill town that was torn down to build the waterfall park!

Besides, 30+ years ago when I was starting out, Greenville was too country for me - now it seems too futuristic. Driving down I-65 at night with that wall of lit up office buildings reminds me of the space cities you see in scifi flicks.

I live just outside of Hilton Head S.C. and I really like it here, and I have lived in 20 different states. The only killer is the humidity, but that is what they made pools for.

I think you mean I-85.

Carmel/Monterey/Gilroy California

Hopefully when I can afford to live in a beach house in Carmel the "big one" (earthquake) will not happen until I'm gone.

Being in the Air Force I move often. Right now at the top of my list is Seattle, Couldn’t get enough of the place when I visited late last year. It met/exceeded all my expectations, from the city itself to the natural scenery. Also on my list would be my hometown of San Antonio.

Seattle is a great city I just could not take all the rain and winter. A great and beautiful city though.

Back home to NY, or the Tri State Area. If not there, either Vermont or Maine. I am a cold weather person.

I am happy with my job, I have a lot of family and friends here, I grew up here, and I love the city, so I don't plan on leaving New York anytime in the foreseeable future. If were to move somewhere though, the following are all cities that I think would be great to live in for various reasons:

Chicago
San Francisco
Boston
Los Angeles
Washington DC
Seattle
Philadelphia
Miami
Honolulu
Minneapolis
