No. I'd have to mix Seattle's upscale urban vibe with Indianopolis' cost of living and Portland's strip club density.

Minneapolis is my perfect city. I'm even getting to the point where I'm ambivalent about the winter. I grew up there, and there's a chance I'll go back, but I'm considering an eventual move to Toronto.

No, I eventually get bored everywhere. Not that there aren't things to do, but I want a change of venue.

St. Louis is my perfect city. I know some will find that odd, but I love it wholeheartedly and since I'm finally moving back, I don't want to live anywhere else ever again!

Nope, doesn't exist. One thing I have learned is that the grass isn't exactly greener on the other side. Whatever drove you crazy in one location, you will definitely find that same thing in another.

Like Portland Oregon but with more sun. This exact city probably exists, but it's probably either in Europe or Australia so I won't be able to live there. Even the Western US itself is way too far, because unlike some people, I still keep in touch with my family.

My perfect city doesn't exist. Actually, I try to just look at the positives of each city I visit. However, one that I am seriously considering moving to is Orlando. My only complaints about it are that it's too flat and lacks more than 1 season. It's also kind of overdone with endless boulevards, chain stores and dense neighborhoods. But I like how it's got a suburban feel overall, affordable housing, and warm weather all year round can be a nice thing, too. It also has a large gay population and many direct flights per day to cities in the Northeast.
