I love where I live. Four seasons, close to NYC, Boston, beaches, mountains, more than 5 international airports to choose from, excellent education, foliage and character.

I have considered moving to California but you can't beat what this area has to offer.

Extremely satisfied. Born and raised here and have never wanted to live anywhere else.

I am probably between "Somewhat unsatisfied" and "unsatisfied"...based on my own internal thought process, somewhat unsatisfied would be a more appropriate term, but based on your definitions after the term in the poll, then probably more unsatisfied.

I live in the inner-ring suburbs of Milwaukee, WI and I returned to live in Milwaukee recently because it is my hometown. It isn't bad at all here, and is a nice enough city/area.

However, my heart lies in Albuquerque, NM or El Paso, TX (or, if neither of those two worked, I would settle for Tucson, AZ or even possibly San Antonio, TX) and thus would move back to one of those areas in a heartbeat if a job worked out down there.

Somewhat unsatisfied.
I like my job, some of my friends and family, "affordable" (though occaisionally unreliable) health care, some of the restaurants and attractions here.

I dislike the abundance of street lights; most American cities are much darker.

I also dislike the climate:

*Springs here arrive late and are typcially cold-to-cool. I usually wear gloves in the morning.
*Summers are the best season, though "chilly" for my tastes (under 85 F )
*Falls are typically cold, soggy, dark and windy, lasting 2-3 months. I wear gloves at least half the time.

*Winter starts in November or December, lasting until late March.
My fingers can hurt 95% of the time, should I choose to remove my gloves.

Fairly well satisfied with Massachusetts living by the ocean. Close to NH and its mountains and woods and tax free shopping, close to Maine and its rocky coast and sparse little towns, and lobster for those who like it.

Loads of culture here and lots of great architecture and history, pretty towns and villages, safe, very picturesque scenery whether it's in the Berkshire Hills or the river valleys or the woods or meadows or sandy beaches. Cape Cod and the islands are in reach. Oh, and Boston too for city lovers--it is attractive for a city and it has great restaurants and loads of educational facilities, great hospitals and a progressive feel to it.

Negatives=EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE to live in, even for the smallest house or apartment. Winters are LONG. Summers are HUMID.
