If so, 1.) Where do you live 2.) Why do you love it there?

I don't love where I live, although I certainly love the man I live with (my husband that is). I am hoping that maybe a trend will emerge, i.e. that most people who love their city/town live in a similar region, or there are common traits among those places, i.e. college town, lots of recreational activities, etc. I know it all depends on the person though, so who knows? It should make for some good reading, either way.

In the words of my neice, "I'm not loving it". The novelty has worn off for me. I no longer like where I live. I'm only staying to until I pay off my debt and maybe attend school. After that I plan on moving west to hopefully what would be greener pastures.

Yeah, I love NYC because it's fun. You never run out of stuff to do. On one block, you've got Italian, Chinese, Greek, Mexican, Vietnamese, Japanese, Russian, French, and American restauarants. You've got great shopping. The history is awesome. We've got historic hillside villages within an hours drive of the city. The diversity of NYC is impossible to beat.

I LOVE the area where I live (mostly). Immediate neighborhood not so much.

Unfortunately I can see the writing on the wall, and we will be driven out by high taxes in our retirement years. Can't see paying $10,000 a year on a fixed income. We will likely take up tax asylum in a southern part of this state or another southern state.

I love the place I live in mainly because of it's prime central location, but also because it is a city that feels just right in size. Everything about St. Louis to me strikes as being just perfect. Topographically St. Louis is very interesting landcape-wise. In the northern half of the MSA, St. Louis has gentle rolling hills and is flat in the northern parts of the MSA. In the Southern half of the MSA, generally along I-44 and I-55, the landscape is much hillier and cliffier, mainly composed of the Mississippi River bluffs. Though our climate knows no limits, we generally do not get the worst of the worst weather. Great places to eat, safe suburbs, affordable cost of living, decent transportation, efficient interstate highway system (well it will be anyway once I-64/U.S. 40 is upgraded to a modern interstate between Vandeventer Avenue and I-270) , and we also are situated on two great rivers which give a lot to do. Not to mention, we have as many cities as Chicago within a day's drive from us, including Chicago, Milwaukee, the Twin Cities, Indy, Detroit, Louisville, Cleveland, Kansas City, Tulsa, Nashville, Cincinatti, Columbus, Memphis, Atlanta, etc. St. Louis likely has the best location in the country....had we chosen to use this to our advantage we could have been as large as Chicago is today.
