I just moved back to Houston so for now I would not move anywhere.

When I was back in San Antonio I would probably have said anywhere.

But places I wouldn't mind moving too would include:

Seattle, Portland, Vancouver, Denver, Albuquerque, Atlanta, NOVA (for work reasons) a few other east coast cities

I like many cities in terms of visiting, I respect them all. There are millions of hardworking people who build upon their cities, to criticize the work of those people is a form of disrespect, my mother and father always told me to respect what others have and never make yourself out to be something more than anyone else.
The instilled the idea that if you can work hard, you can do what you want, both my parents have, my mom manages her own company, while my father is a consultant, they created a life in which they instilled the values into their children, and they made our lives worth it, I thank them quite a lot for that, for everything I have.

I have been to many cities and many places, not even one seemed like it wasn't worth it. I have liked them all for what they are, I do however like some more than others.

If I could live anywhere in this country it would be in the following cities and I'll even give the reasons why:

Tucson, Arizona: Part of me strives for peace a d solace, and I want a quiet life in a city that I can get the basic things in, the food, the shopping, just the usual things. Tucson has one hell of a great scenery location, not too far off from San Diego, Phoenix, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, so I like it's location. It is a safe city.

Seattle, Washington: Just like Tucson the natural scenery is what draws me to this place. I like everything the city has to offer, and I like how the PNW sub-region is a bit isolated from the rest of the country. I strive for that, and I really want that a lot. And it's only a drive away from Canadian border.

San Diego, California: The city itself is beautiful, I am very much into Southern California. I like the city and all it has to offer, it's proximity to Los Angeles, it's athletic sense, the weather, the scenery, the things to do. All of it screams winner in my book.

Houston, Texas: I find myself liking this city more everyday, and it's getting to the point where I can see myself living here when I have a family of my own. It's a wonderful city, friendly people, gives me space and gives me city lifestyle, depends where I want it. I edged it out from Dallas because it's near the coast, I like the coast setting a lot, Houston's beaches and boardwalks are decent, they aren't spectacular but they aren't bad. They are good for what it's worth. Very relaxed city, and I like that.

Chicago, Illinois: The city life here is beyond amazing, the beach, the dense vibrancy, the great views, the amenities, the food, the bars, everything is so close, the city itself gives you a feeling that you know it and you can still explore it. The city is simply fantastic, the architecture is wonderful, and there is always plenty to do.

Los Angeles, California: I like Southern California (as I already stated), Los Angeles draws me, the mountains, the amount of fantastic things to do, the beaches, the type of lifestyle where things are so spread out yet so lively (in many places), the natural surrounding, the entertainment options. This is a city that I like a lot I could see myself living here quite easily. I can get solace and peace when I like and can live life to the fullest with the amenities offered, similar to Chicago in that sense. (besides the peace and quiet part)

Dallas, Texas: I like this city a lot, and it's obvious because I am a very selective person when it comes to "where I want to live" I only like elite standard of living options in which Dallas matches Houston. The only reason I gave Houston the edge is because Houston is near the coast, otherwise both cities are practically the same. I have lived here, I would know. Dallas offers all the big city amenities and a great opportunity to get ahead in life, especially for business owners and entrepreneur. It matches Houston in every other way, so see the Houston option for more information. I do give Dallas the better shopping scene than Houston, Houston is pretty good itself (top 10) but Dallas is better.

Denver, Colorado: I like to snowboard, and I like a city called Aspen. I would like to live in Denver because of it's proximity to both. The most fun I have ever had as far as bar hopping and things like that has actually been in Denver. Denver has beautiful landscape and offers a great economy (just like Houston/Dallas do) and it can give me that isolated peace that I am striving for as Denver's location is quite isolated.

Buffalo, New York: I know people are going to turn heads and go like, HUH WTFFF why did he put that city there. Well this is why, the proximity to Canada, the standard of living, the location near one of the most beautiful natural landmarks in the world (Niagara Falls) and it's own unique blend of food set the sail for me to pick the place. I like how great this city is, and how humble it is as well. It's had it's downer moments in history, but I would easily take it as a place to live, if I were offered the chance.

Washington DC: I would very much like to live there, it's beautiful in an architectural sense. It's spread out and dense, it's got great food, and it's diverse. It's got so much history, and it's where the federal government is- which somehow is appealing to me despite the fact that I hate politics. The location is wonderful in that it is not in a state but it's a district of it's own. Honestly if I were to live here it would not be the suburbs, it would be in a good area inside the city. This is where my parents draw their history back to, where they lived before Chicago and before I was born, and where they lived after New York City, where my dad grew up. I love the city, and everything about it almost.

Honorable Mention:
Phoenix, Arizona
Miami, Florida
Austin, Texas
Fort Worth, Texas

That is all, those cities and the honorable mentioned cities are the ONLY places I would ever live in this country. I like to visit any city and would like to see them all, but those sum up all the ones I would actually live in.

I respect all cities for what they are, and the people who work hard there and have contributed to those cities and how they have grown. It ticks me off when people disrespect and generalize a place, that is insulting to those that actually work harder than the bum who bashes the place. I do not put up with that kind of attitude ever, when some has that, "I come from a place better than you" type of thing. No one city makes America, takes them all drive the country- try to grasp that people.

Lived in Tampa a long time no much crime and no good bbq lived in Tulsa Ok wonderful people great bbq good drivers enough rain and trees not as much lighting as Tampa. Now, down in Biloxi Ms crazy drivers expensive prices for food and gas but you pay near the ocean. lots of casinos which is nice if you gamble. you can drink in a bar 24hr a day here. strange but true Went down to Douglas AZ for awhile in 05 hot. but no grass to mow.If you like history Tombstone is near. expensive gas and food prices more than east coast. but the people are nice Amarillo I've lived awhile too. hot and dry but nice folks. Jonesboro Ar is a great little town but very hot in summer. easy to get around. Now, I'm going back to Tx try Lubbock this time. been looking for a house to buy and see if I like it never lived in a state that had two license plates before. anyway, out of all Tulsa was the cleanest and nicest city.
