Default The best state and city to live in the southeast

My wife amd I are exploring many options right now on where to move too and live. We both like the southeast part of the country. I like it all the way over to Alabama even parts of Mississippi. What are some of your thought and opinion's on this?

Check out "the Ham," Birmingham. Small city, not hard to get to know a bunch of folks. Lots going on...concerts, art, symphony, ballet. A funky vibe, with historic neighborhoods, or suburban living, according to your desire.

I like Alabama, a lot of family from Florence. My grandparent's are from just across the state line in Savannah TN. There seems to be a lot of jobs in Huntsville, especialy in the skilled trade's.

It depends on what you define as southeast. While it's physically southeastern, but usually not included in that area, I would say Houston. To be more correct, I would say Georgia.

Hmmm...several I think tie for this one. Atlanta is definitely one of the cities I would pick. I'd also be inclined to select places like Charlotte and Asheville, SC. Savannah, GA is also nice. Richmond, VA is another good one.

I'm madly in love with Athens, GA. I'm also fond of Asheville, NC, but it has some strange problems --- the layout of the city is very awkward, they have bad air pollution and lots of fog/haze, and they're more isolated. Athens has the advantages of a vibrant downtown, beautiful neighborhoods, and easy access to Atlanta.

I wouldn't want to be in a big city I don't think. To many people and the traffic. I'd like to be close to water, lakes or ocean.

Compared to North Carolina, South Carolina is completely different in appearance, and its cities from what I understand are not doing as well as other major cities in the South, though like the rest of the South they definitely are growing. In short...South Carolina to me is better for a tourist destination than it is for a permanent living area. Charleston, Columbia, and Hilton Head are good for a visit...lol...ok...actually...what am I thinking, scratch Hilton Head from being just a good place to visit...THAT is a place i would definitely LOVE to live
