I would probably stay in New England area. The rest of the country just isn't as progressive and educated as New England. New England is a matured, developed society that has reached peak growth. The rest of the country is still growing, building highways, building neighborhoods, etc. We get a fair share of all four seasons. You don't have to go to church to get accepted by others and gays can get married (in most states). And it's got the oldest, most authentic buildings, homes, stone walls, covered bridges, and is just loaded with character that the rest of the country lacks.

Anywhere in East or West as long as it's not Midwest, LOL. Actually cross California off from the West coast. Well, so far.. I have Portland and Seattle in my mind...I haven't done much traveling yet, but I am a very outdoor person (if given the chance). idk.

Santa Fe, NM - I love that city!
San Diego - the weather is so wonderful
Ft Worth - nice sized city - proximity to family
Houston - feels like home

I'll probably end up staying in Lexington's SW side just because I'm so use to it. I've been eating at the same restaurants there since the mid 1990s when I first moved there at age 11.

Well for right now, I am headed back to Washington DC while I finish up my undergrad degree. After I am done with that though I would really love to live in eastern Iowa (strange place to pick I know).

If money were no object, I might pick NH, ME or VT; but Iowa has an easier cost of living for me and seems to still offer some of the things I love about New England. Plus, I have a son and Iowa seems to be a bit more family-friendly than other places I'd want to live if it were just me.

I'd head to Pittsburgh. I'm too tired to list all the reasons why, but off the top of my head; geography, architecture, people, character.
