I voted for NC, and considering its natural features it was an easy choice. Where else in the southeast can you find as many mountains and beach all in the same state?? North Carolina is a beautiful state, and its blessed with Southern culture. Virginia has all these things too, just in lesser amounts. Their mountains are not quite as tall, they have less beaches and less Southern culture. That is why I chose NC over VA.

Massachusetts??? Pretty state with some serious history but its too cold, too northern, too liberal etc for me to vote for it. Others would see all those things as positive attributes I know. All of this comes down to personal preference. Nice place for a vacation though.

Texas by far, in the Southeast part of the state (where I'm from) or in the cities of Dallas or San Antonio.

Virginia is a distant second, and it would have to be in the Hampton Roads. I like DC but wouldn't want to live in NOVA.

North Carolina is third, and it would absolutely be in the Charlotte area.

I don't see myself happy in Massachusetts at all. Beautiful scenery, though.

Leaning more to VA and NC. Close to back home and weather is fairly mixed. I mean may think New England school's are all that some can be a bit sketchy so heard good thing's about VA/NC school's.

We like Raleigh a lot because fiancé is into Wicca and into Metaphysical spirituality. I am a Buddhist the areas has a few places to worship and meet up. Also has a paranormal investigation group that is pretty interesting in Raleigh.

Housing prices are really good.

Since we're hoping to be nurse's though doesn't seem to be many options for hospitals. Have to keep researching the area.

I live in MA but voted for VA because of the weather. MA would be my 2nd choice. NC would be a very distant 3rd choice. TX would never be a consideration.

Since I live in Maryland, I would try Northern Virginia first since there isn't that much difference and I'm already close to it.

North Carolina seems like it could be a good place for retirement.

If they could physically move Texas to some place cooler, I'd pick there.

Massachusetts. It feels more like "home" there, and I'm not much of a fan of Southern states.
