Twenty miles from what point? From the city center, from the city limits, from the defined Metro Area, which Metro Area designation?

If I had to spend the rest of my life within 20 miles of an American city with a million people, I'd kill my self and choose Hell.

from city limits.


Holland Tunnel to Newark is only 9 miles.

Florence Ave/Rio Hondo to Disney is only 18 miles.


City doesn't need to have a million people, a half is enough.

In that case, I'll take Jacksonville for winter, and Anaconda or Butte Montana for summer. You make the rules, I'll play by them.

Nice you can still travel to Amelia Island, Ponte Vedra Beach, Sawgrass and the Northern half of St.Augustine.

Why not go from Portland to Seattle to Spokane to San Francisco to LA to Riverside to KC to Chicago?
Portland and Seattle both need to be in the middle of the year, as both of their climates suck non-summer. I'd have Portland in May, because it's not quite hot yet, and will have better weather than Seattle in May. Seattle's best months are July and August, but it wins out in August over LA, because LA has a better chance of being too hot in August, and LA is too gloomy in June, hence July. San Francisco's blissful weather tends to hold through September.

Spokane has to be in winter. I'm going to spend my winters in snow, but not in biting cold a la Chicago. I'm not doing any of the Midwest in the coldest/hottest months, I'm pushing it with Chicago in June as it is. I could just as well flip Chicago and Portland.

Riverside gets November because most of the heat has passed (though fire season could still be lingering), and there is a chance I could spend some time in the mountains as well (for an early taste of winter).

The only times I'm too far from my home bases (places I've lived throughout life) are when I'm in Chicago and Kansas City. It's good to get out every now and then.

Maybe if you're walking. That would mean that If I were in Miami I couldn't visit the Keys. While in Portland, OR, I wouldn't be able to go to Seaside or Mt. Hood National Forest. Where's the fun in that?
