most people do very well with 50-60k and the ones who don't are simply the people who don't know how to budget their money.

to answer the op, if i could go anywhere i'd go to miami and live there. It is without a doubt my favorite city in usa. Lived there once and can't wait to move back.

I would live in Asheville, NC or some smaller city in the South if I was able to move. I have a telecommuting job now, but unable to move anytime soon. If I could live anywhere, I would choose a very rural area in the mountains (East or West coast), but with needing broadband access, I would have to stick with some towns that are somewhat populated.

It would depend on my family situation: Single, married, or raising kids. About 90% of my decision would be based on that single factor.

Singlle: Fairly large city with lots of knuckle-dragging mouth-breathing men to compete with for the choice women. I won't mention any names here. Maybe a state capital, attracting lots of career working girls.

Married, no children: Wouldn't matter, but would go for low cost of living and easy access to the countryside.

Raising kids: As far as possible from an urban metroplex, in a town of less than 5,000, preferably much less.

My wife and I both telecommute and can work anywhere as long as we can get telephone and high speed internet.
We live in CT now but are starting to investiagte other areas for a possible relocate.

I think you have to write down some things that are important to you, such as what kind of weather you like and what kind of activities you like to partake. Make sure to visit places.

Since we can move with our salaries, moving from CT to almost any other state will save us some money.

I would live in a very rural area. North or South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, or Minnesota.
