Same city I live now probably, Los Angeles, over by Macarthur Park. I like it there, more diverse than my fairly homogenously Mexican enclave. I like the Central American and free market character of the area, lots of street vendors. Or maybe Downtown, Historic Core area. Or maybe the city of Huntington Park area in Southeast LA County, I like all those areas, but I'll probably go with Macarthur Park area and hope the yuppies don't ruin it too much. There's no real Native American Indian enclave in Los Angeles but with that sort of money maybe I can make one, that'll be something. And those are good candidates, HP got the American Indian resource center in the library, Macarthur Park is close to downtown and has Latin American Indians like Zapotec and Maya in the area, Historic Core area has Indian Alley, probably why I like these places.

I would split mine this way:

Summer- I would live in one of those enormous, gorgeous Painted Ladies on Mackinac Island that face the Straits of Mackinac with a view of the Mighty Mac Bridge.

Winter- I would live in one of those three story Colonial era mansions with the piazzas on the Battery in Charleston, SC.

Spring and Fall- I would live in a state-of-the-art log cabin home with a sweeping view of the Great Smoky Mountains.

LOL about people who say they would live here or there to avoid state taxes. Most of us have such a built-in economical, working class mindset, don't we? I mean, if you had $250 million, who cares if you have to pay state tax? You couldn't spend that kind of money in two lifetimes...unless you're Mike Tyson or Michael Jackson...
