I've lived in St. Louis my whole life and I like it. The arts, entertainment, food, music, even drives in the country are abundant and accessable. The cost of living is lower than many cities which means I can own my home and not fork over 40+% of my income to finance it. That along with living in the midwest allows me to travel all over the country.

Well, it's not the place I live that's the problem; it's the fact that my family is 3000+ miles away from me.

Does a love/hate relationship count? I live in Los Angeles, where I've been all of my life. There are many things to love about this city, like the sheer variety of things to do. That is, if you can get to them. See? Love/hate. Housing is certainly expensive, but on the other hand, not every activity is expensive. There are many free concerts in the summer, for example. And our weather is perfect (well, for me, anyway!).

Still, I dream of moving out of here, getting away from the elbow to elbow people, the "all flash and little substance" exhibited by many in the film industry, etc. I still have at least two years before I can begin exploring other areas (my 19-year-old son is still at home).

Most of my traveling has been to the east coast to see family, but since humidity is on my "No" list, I'm exploring options in the west. Since I'm only 43, I have a few more years to work, so I'd like to transfer with my company, which limits my choices just a bit. Still, who knows what may happen?

I do, I like it a lot. Lived in 4 different states, and five cities. I would choose the one I am in right now over all the rest. St. Louis, MO.

Note to you, I am not saying it is the best, just saying I am currently happy with my City.

I honestly love where I am at in Texas. It is the ideal place for ME. For others, it may not be, but I truly like it and most likely wouldn't move anywhere else that I have been to so far. Everyone has their own views on the "ideal" place...

I don't mind where I am.....we have everything we need and our leaders are always trying to push new businesses into coming here. Only 3 1/2 to 4 hours from the nearest major city.....

I don't like or hate the area I live in. I just don't care about it.
