You beat me to the punch, as it popped into my mind after reading the OP's second post.

I just always wanted to go to north California it seemed/seems really nice. I would like to mention that I wouldn't mind too much on moving to the Mid-West or New England areas, my wife and I just want to find a good place to start off and a good place to set roots, I guess. I've been looking at all of the places suggested to us, and I would like to thank all of those that have posted, it has been a great help, and you all are very insightful.

Does anyone know of any nice places to live in Oregon and Arizona that also have good economies?

The advice you have been given here is really good. The best advice I am going to give you is to look at how the employment figures are going in whatever city you are interested in. Look at the cost of living. Those are the two most important "do's" to consider.

Don't be a sheep and go where all the other young sheep are going. Don't go by what you may hear about in the media. Often that information is dated, incorrect or simply PR hype. Chances are what you are hearing is false. Take advice from people who seem knowledgeable about places the best being from those who live there.

If at all possible, visit a place before moving there but not as a tourist. I did that in searching for places to reallocate. I took public transportation and chatted with people about their city. I talked to servers at restaurants they are great sources. People love to talk about where they live both good and bad.

Good luck in your relocation plans.
