I love Boston, and would never dream of leaving.

Cleveland is amazing. It's rusty, old, and worn-in like a pair of blue jeans. Great European architecture, looks like a mini-New York. There are plenty of hip & trendy neighborhoods around here, as well as an amazing music scene. Great food, too. I actually love the weather because I adore snow & I seem to look best in winter clothing. My family & friends are here as well. It's very cheap; I've seen people get by with 20,000 a year & live perfectly fine.

Overall, I love it here and wouldn't move.

It's ok-- I don't love it, but it's perfect in terms of affordability and access.
I can't say Newark without many people thinking that I'm lying, but it offers some great things, and it's definitely improving.

I live in the north ward Forest Hill/Mt Prospect area, which is a historic district with little crime (there's a lot of wealth in the neighborhood too). There's not a lot going on in terms of nightlife, but I can always take a trip down to the Ironbound section (which is probably Newark's most thriving neighborhood), or travel east to Hoboken/NYC. I like that I live so close to what is probably one of the most beautiful, historic urban parks in the nation (Branch Brook Park)- it's where I walk my dog everyday . Mt Prospect Ave is the main street and is also the high rise district, so public transportation is top notch.

I don't even associate myself with anything west of MLK Blvd. That's where all the negative hype thrives. It's improving, but still in need of dire help.

I just moved to the Seattle metro area about 7 months ago and LOVE it here. I came from the midwest and was pretty unhappy there, with the lack of things to do, lack of scenic areas, and cold winters. The weather here is fantastic, the scenery is unmatched anywhere in the US in my opinion, and the city itself is so clean with tons and tons of things to do any time of the year.

I can't complain.....Where I live is in a great location, there's plenty of fresh water, beautiful views, generally safe for the most part, affordable, schools are good for the most part, it has enough to keep from getting bored, but isn't too big and has 4 seasons. I wouldn't call it perfect, but it is an area that offers quite a bit.

Seattle is awesome. And I agree the scenery is unmatched anywhere in the US. If I had to move today I would pick Seattle.

I've lived in Nashville for the past 16 years. I love living here. It's a progressive city that has changed a lot since I've moved here. There are still things that can be improved...but overall...I think it's a great place to live.

This is turning out great. Except for the guy who loves Cleavland. That is some serious positive mental attitude! I'd rather slam my dick in my front door every day than live in Cleavland.

Of course, not too many people rave about Detroit either so don't feel bad. I think all of us rust belt folks would rather be elsewhere.
