Well, it is quite tough to choose 5 places that I would live in if I were independently wealthy, but I'll do my best.

1. Portland, OR
2. Seattle, WA-For the gorgeous scenery and clean air
3. Michigan-For the scenery as I have seen pictures of it and because I am a big Detroit Red Wings fan
4. Minneapolis, MN
5. Los Angeles

EDIT: Sorry, some minor edits to my post

1) Salt Lake City, Utah - This would remain my main home as I love this place. I would especially visit often in winter due to the snow. Great natural sights as well.
2) Anchorage, Alaska - This would be my vacation home. It serves as a great jumping off point for many spectacular natural sights. Alaska is incredible! It would also be great in summer.
3) Seattle, Washington - I love this city and it would be great in summer.
4) Chicago, Illinois - Probably would be the best really large city to live in. I need my cosmopolitan cravings every once in a while. Also would probably satisfy my severe t-storm cravings.
5) Eureka, California - My small town retreat, and would be close enough to the rest of California for my tastes with many great beaches nearby. Would be great in summer.

Honorable mention: Denver, Colorado - because I also love that city
