Well, I come from New York City (born in Brooklyn ; lived in Staten Island and Queens) and I lived there for nearly my whole life. I moved to Charlotte, NC with my parents and sister in late October of 2008.

I honestly love the South so much more then New York. I love the culture, the people, the weather, the attitude, and the politics in the South.

Although, I do miss a lot of aspects of NY culture, I moved on and love it in the south.

I prefer most places to where I came from.

Where I came from (MA) vs FL where I am now.

I pick MA hands down.

Oddly enough I prefer living in Ohio to Sacramento, where I relocated from. Dayton does indeed suck in many ways, but I like the "older" patina and character of Ohio, and the seasonal weather. Cincinnat (and, to a lesser extent, Columbus) are to Dayton what the Bay Area is to Sacramento...but they are considerably closer and cheaper to visit in terms of going out, things to do, etc.

Washington over Colorado

Colorado over California (where I'm from originally).

I moved from Cleveland to the Detroit/Ann Arbor area years ago. Not a big economic, cultural, or climate change but I much prefer Michigan, even with its current economic condition, to Ohio. There is more to do, faster pace, prettier landscape, and the people are more genuine (for good or bad).

I moved from Michigan to Minnesota and it's really, really close, because I love both places. I would have to go with Minnesota, because I love the wide-open spaces of the Great Plains, the sunny weather (well, sunnier than Michigan) and the better economy. I still love Michigan - it's one of the most beautiful places on earth.

I grew up in upstate New York but have lived my adult life in Minneapolis. I like Minneapolis a lot better; there is more to do, the culture is more dynamic and cosmopolitan and the people are more openminded.

I grew up in TN, moved to MA, and am now in CA. The weather in the Northeast was a killer for me. California is great- great weather, lots of jobs, but the cost of living is awful. I want to move to TX at some point. Hopefully that will hit all of my requirements: Not cold, good jobs, affordable.
