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.
Not me. I live in Michigan and LOVE it. Moved away for years and couldn't wait to get back. Where in Michigan? Mason County in the Ludington area.

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.

I completely agree with the ^ above posting. I'm from Cleveland originally, now I live in Columbus. I love and adore both cities!
Cleveland is a truly remarkable city for soooooooooo many reasons, I share the OPs love and adoration for the cities beautiful architecture, quality of life and amenities. Meanwhile, I've also grown quite fond of Columbus ...
Ohio is "HOME, SWEET HOME"

Yeah, OK, sorry. I should be a total pessimist and whine & moan about where I grew up and spent most of my life, right?

Sorry that not everybody can afford to live in LA or NYC. No way am I going to ditch my family & friends for congested traffic and ridiculous rent. Is Cleveland the best place ever? No, but it's better than, say, I dunno... a third-world country where I actually WOULD rather slam my dick in the front door everyday than live?

I absolutely adore Orlando. I never thought I'd choose it over NYC, but at this point in my life- hands down. I'll be one unhappy camper when I leave again in September.

LOL! Well, if you lived in Cleavland all of your life nobody would blame you for complaining!

But I have to agree with you on the fact that it is a lot better than living in a third world country.

Truth be told, if I wasn't wearing a pair of golden handcuffs I'd be out of Detroit tomorrow. Ah but maybe this year I will be able to do the snow bird thing.

Palm trees baby, palm trees!

I live in a relatively small township on Long Island NY (duh), as if you couldn't have figured that out for yourself. Life is comparatively good here although
on a relative QOL issue, if you need to find work, there are fewer opportunities here than there are in other places. I never forget that there are always
and certainly, worse places than here.

As many of us see, there have been so many societal changes to consider when offering an opinion as to, "loving" where they live and without understanding
the length or the quality of the love that they have, is a very relative aspect of that love. I've lived in this town for 36 years and have enjoyed the best of
blessings here, but as most of us have seen, the times and the people are changing and I only wish that I could say, for the better. It is good though, that I
do like my little town. The deflated housing market would not allow me to be able to sell my house and yet afford to move elsewhere. I consider myself fortunate
because I have no more than whatever it is that I can afford to have and thankfully, no less. I'll end on this philosophical note:

"Blessed are those without great expectations because they have fewer disappointments".
What is this the Miss USA pageant? The taxes here suck. I am moving to Dallas.

You'll be surprised at how high the taxes in Texas CAN be. In some parts, the taxes aren't that much different than parts of Upstate NY. I'm just saying......

I am not sure. I know they have no income tax, 3% property tax, and no sales tax on food (like NY). I am not sure about all parts of Texas but Southlake seems to be good. Plus the cost of living and quality of life there is nice. Our new house has a pool which can be used more throughout the year than here and since we are having children it will be nice for them. I am also very health conscious I like to lift weights in the backyard instead of inside and I like sports which the weather is nicer in winter than NY to do those things. The town is really nice I could not not pass it up. I will be working withmy son to play hard in football and training with him nonstop because in a football system like theirs chances to get noticed and go pro are a beautiful thing!

I love living in Seattle, Washington right now.
I also loved living in New York City.
I also liked it when I lived in New Paltz, New York for a few months.(a small liberal town 2 hours north of NYC).
