I would probably be fine with any place that isn't the South or the Midwest (with the exceptions of Chicago and Minneapolis). I would prefer to be in or near a big city, and for it to fit my lifestyle and political views.
My top favourite states would be Oregon, Washington, Arizona, Colorado, New York, and California (though my part sucks, I prefer NorCal)

I think I would enjoy, or learn to enjoy, living in most states. I definitely heavily prefer certain states over others, but I think every state offers something great. The only ones I'm not quite sure about about are Alaska, Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, and South Dakota. This is mainly do the extreme weather, a lack of any sizable cities, and geographic isolation from the majority of the population. Beautiful states though. I think I would try out Alaska, it seems like it would be an amazing adventure to live up there for maybe a year or so, but I definitely don't think I could live there permanently.

New Jersey.

I think I'd have a hard time living anywhere else. But maybe upstate New York would be OK, as long as it was within a couple hours of civilization.

Washington, Alaska, Montana, and possibly Northern California.

Perhaps Hawaii in the future, preferably an elevated location on the big island, but one of the above for the here and now.

This actually surprises me of you. Do you mean coastal northern California, or perhaps around the Tahoe area? Just curious.
