Yup. New York state, California, Illinois, Hawaii, Pennsylvania, and Massachusetts also made my list. It seems like we probably voted them for similar reasons.

However, it is interesting that Nevada, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, and North Carolina are on your list but didn't make my list and that Washington state, Oregon, Colorado, New Mexico, and Texas are not on your list while they made my list.

For California, I would live in San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Eureka, Lake Tahoe, or Palm Springs.

For Pennsylvania, I would live in Philadelphia.

For New York state, I would live in New York City, Ithaca, somewhere in the Adirondacks or Catskills, or somewhere on the southern shore of Long Island such as Fire Island.

For Massachusetts, I would live in Boston, Cambridge, somewhere on Cape Cod, or Northhampton.

For Texas, I would live in Houston, Dallas, or Austin.

For Washington, I would live in Seattle, Bellingham, San Juan islands, Olympia, or Ellensburg.

I wouldn't know unless I actually lived in them...

So, potentially 50.

No, it means I have flexibility and I can learn to get along with my neighbors no matter what state I find myself in, and I can find events and attractions that will fulfill my life, and I can appreciate the seasons and the natural surroundings anywhere.

I can't imagine being locked into a mindset that make it impossible for me to live in any state and enjoy my life there. If you could not possibly live in a certain state, that says more about you than about the state, and it screams intolerance.

The only states I believe I would be comfortable living in are Maryland (SoMd) or Virginia (NoVa)

Okay, but that's a different issue. Most people don't usually move to places that make them wonder if there's a remote possibility they might enjoy some aspect of living there. That's setting the bar pretty low.

People like to live in places that they already have a preference for based on a number of factors.

Any place that did not have a brutal winter. I love Missouri, but even the winters here are getting a little harsher than I would like. Really, only January and February are bad, but they are bad enough to wish I could be somewhere else during that time.
