Too be realistic, I picked Phoenix as number one, due to it's climate and affordability.

Here's the other 4 metros I would move to:

2. Dallas-Fort Worth
3. Cincinnati
4. OKC
5. Las Vegas

Here's my list for if money wasn't a factor:

1. Los Angeles
2. San Francisco Bay
3. San Diego
4. Washington DC
5. Chicago

I pick Dallas-Fort Worth area. Some of my family live in that area and maybe some day it will be my new home.

Um......what do U mean by Phoenix's climate? Good? Bad? Phoenix's climate is only tolerable between NOV and APR. The rest of the year its absolute hell. Similar with Vegas too.

Atlanta was voted as the one most people would want to live in on this poll on this thread. Why is that? Anyone from outside ATL want to give reasons why they want to move here? None of the comments are about all the people that voted ATL as number one on this poll.
