1. New Hampshire - Home, perfect balance of everything for me.
2. Hawaii - Beautiful place, not sure I could make living there happen
3. Washington State - Another Beautiful place, living there could be a real possibility but a little too liberal for me.
4. Maine - Very similar to NH but just not as good!
5. California - Another Beautiful place, living there could be a real possibility but a little too liberal for me.

Most people want to leave. Statistic wise, NY is loosing people left and right. We are in the process of trying to leave as well
The Adirondacks, Saranac Lake, Lake Placid ... it's beautiful! And NYC is my favorite place to visit!

I used to love North Carolina. Amazing views, Blue Ridge Parkway, so scenic, lush, Asheville, Waynesville, waterfalls. But life on the Gulf Coast ruined me with hurricanes, poisonous snakes and extreme heat. Getting out of the South.

Maryland (This has been the state that has most impressed me. From the coast to the bay to the mountains and its surprisingly very wealthy areas. America in miniature)

Tennessee (East TN in particular)

Virginia

Pennsylvania

Arizona (Never been to AZ but the landscape intrigues me)

Harder question than I thought...

New Mexico, where I live -- best spot for me.
Missouri, Gasconade County (once Plan B) or St. Louis (home town)
North Carolina, coastal only, not outer banks.
Colorado, western slope only...
Montana/Wyoming (Yellowstone area)

When I win the next big lottery jackpot I'd stay in NM but have homes available in the other spots and probably in Umbria, Italy, and Caribbean.
