I pick Nashville since my parents live 2 hours south of there. Hopefully sometime in the future I'll move there.

Of the large metro areas I've visited, I'd live in Raleigh/Durham hands down. I lived an hour from there for two years and loved the area. but I would like to see some of the mountain west--Salt Lake City and Denver especially.

I used to live an hour south of SLC in Provo, Utah. Really beautiful country up there. Mountains, mountains, and more mountains!

I'm in the New York City Metro area and I don't have much desire to leave the region at all. If I were to leave then maybe I would try out Oklahoma City.. I hear good things about it.

New Orleans Metro also has some appeal to me but I think more needs to be done before I would realistically consider it.
