lol...yes....Town and Country....suburb is located just west of the I-64 and I-270 interchange in Missouri. Luckily our suburbs have a bit of variety to their names though...Town and Country...Clayton...Ladue...Chesterfield....Hazelw ood...Bellefontaine Neighbors...Charlack...Sycamore Hills....Webster Groves...Fenton....Eureka....St. Charles...Weldon Spring....Bridgeton....Woodson Terrace....Olivette....Creve Couer....Oakland....Oakville...Mehlville....yea and the list goes on....I'm the person to ask if you want to know all the suburbs of the St. Louis MSA. generally I tend to include the St. Charles County suburbs along with the St. Louis County ones....since St. Charles County is essentially a part of St. Louis overall. I could probably even list most of the St. Louis suburbs in Illinois as well...generally we would include Calhoun County, Madison County, and St. Clair County.

I LOVED both assignments...go figure. We ended up in the Dayton, OH suburbs by happenstance and I'm glad we did. We love the cost of living, our jobs and the area. Yes, we miss the mountains out West. And we love the hustle & bustle (and abundant entertainment options) of the East Coast. And we enjoyed Texas. And every other place we've been. We can always visit. We don't think we'll ever leave OH (we'll just buy a Tuscan villa as a second home if we win the lottery...)
Attitude trumps stats

I live in a suburb of Phoenix and I love it! It's a beautiful place to call home with both natural and man-made beauty. It's about 7 hours drive to San Diego and about 6 hours to Las Vegas. The Phoenix metro has just about anything you want to do from a symphony, art galleries, museums, concerts, golfing, hiking, biking, world-class resorts and restaurants, etc etc. It may get hot in the summer but 8 out of 12 months of the year it's GREAT.

I love NE Ohio, but i know many around me disagree. I think most people have a bad attitude about this area because they A) Hate the weather or B) can't find a job.

I live in Austin, TX and I love it. I've been here for about 12 years now. Of course like any place, it isn't perfect. The summers are long and hot, I hate fire ants, and traffic keeps getting worse.

I love the diversity of people. There are things to do for just about everyone. I love tennis and being able to play year round. I love living in a liberal city and it's accepting attitude toward gays (I'm gay). I love the size of it, being able to know most of the town but yet being surprised by new things all the time. I love the optimistic attitude of the city, and for that matter, the state. I love the growth and newness of the city, and being part of it's transformation from over sized college town to decent sized metro area.

Austin isn't a major city and doesn't have the world class options which go along with that, but what it does have are little slices of the best of other places.

We like/love living in South Florida. We have lived here for approx 20 years. Whenever we feel like seeing mountains, we hop a plane to see the mountains or hop on a plane for just a change of pace.

We are in central WI moving from Chicago 20 years ago. I love winter so this is a great place to live. I miss Chicago but we go down quite a bit. Don't miss the traffic though.

I like northern CA, because my favorite city is San Francisco. It's a place that fits my violin playing, my writing, and my transformation from a software engineer to a lawyer. My family is thriving here as well. Been all over the country, and I think this is the place I will settle.
