Scottville has that rare combination.

I don't like skylines or sprawl, I like a sunset over one of the Great Lakes with maybe a passing 1000' freighter moving like a speck over the water on the far horizon. I want my kids to be raised in a place where they are safe to ride their bikes, and have little league, Cub/Boy Scouts, Teachers that they want to visit on Summer vacation because they miss them. Good Friends that are true friends and could care less what they are wearing. I am NOT willing to sacrifice those points. I am willing to sacrifice Malls, traffic, BMW dealers, 24 hour entertainment, and pretentious people who think any town under 250,000 in population is "hick".
No, tell us how you really feel. I'm just kidding really, I'm happy that you have found the place that you are happiest, some people take a long time to find that place.

I'll make the bland, generic choice. Manhattan or London.

I was born and raised there. It took moving all over the country to see that where I left, was where my family needs to be. Sometimes I can be a tad boneheaded.

I'd spend Summer on the shores of Lake Tahoe and winter on the island of Maui.

I'd have to say Boone, North Carolina because the views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the amenities there, the climate.

An impractical fantasy that I have is to live in Santa Barbara, CA., or at least somewhere in that vicinity on the coast. That or a private subtropical island that I would buy: the biggest daydream of all.
