A Amazonian like tropical rainforest as an option somewhere like the highlands in central Columbia. Tropical rainforests offer almost perfect conditions for Human beings.

As a Floridian, I am jealous of mountains along the coast, but I'm unwilling to give up a warm water sea to get them.

The glorious mountains in the Pacific Northwest.

I wish we had some of those in the Appalachians.

- Denser development in towns and boroughs (like you see around suburban DC)
- Less restrictive/confusing/stupid alcohol rules (like those found almost everywhere else!)
This.

Philly should definitely expand its subways into West and Northeast Phila, and bury that horrendous Roosevelt Boulevard into a below grade expressway like the western end.

It would make Philadelphia more attractive to people if it was investing in Public Works and Transportation.

The other thing I am jealous of is the length of our summer. I wish it was 6 months long vs. 3. on the other hand I love all 4 seasons so that really isnt possible if you still want to have a "real" winter.

One thing I really liked about the pacific north west was how at lower elevations you had a very moderate winter that never got super cold, but if you wanted feet and feet of reliable snow all you had to do was drive up into the mountains.
I just wish the tallest mountains in the northeast IE. Mt Washington in New Hampshire and Mt Marcy in New York, were tall enough to have snow-capped peaks all year. They are noticeably white through April and part of May and traces of snow can exist through June, but then the next snowfall isn't until October or maaaaybe September?

At least they have the glacier-scoured peaks unlike the tallest in Virginia/North Carolina, but I just wish they were more like 8,000 ft rather than just 5,000-6,000. I've also read that the western ranges (gasp) may be getting taller (cries in depression), while the Appalachians are clearly only eroding away.

For me, I would have to say that living in New England, I am jealous of the South and Midwest for having lots of high speed U.S. divided highways where you can cruise for miles and miles at 65 mph. We don't really have any of that here in New England. Everything here is so compact, cramped, slow, curvy and full of intersections, traffic lights, etc.
I am jealous of Oklahoma having Braum's.

I must say being on a boat on the beautiful Annisquam river in Gloucester, MA in July going over to dock at some long-time family friends house for a lobster and clam bake with the fire flys in the distance makes me think I am living in a novel and is definitely a quality about New England that I am jealous of.
