For me, i'd exclude IN, MI, NC, NY, and OH. But that's just me. And for NY, if you're talking about the city area, than take it off my list. Those were just some states i couldn't see myself living in, im not putting them down or anything because ive been to each and each state they're all great

They are all worth living in. Depends on what you are looking for is all. All of them have cities, all have rural areas. Every state on your list has some very beautiful areas as well as some real crap areas.

Personally, depending on what you do for a living, I would seriously look around the Grand Rapids area of Michigan. Close to some truly world class beaches, lower cost of living, close to large cities. Right now there are plenty of people who are very down on the state, but there is no denying the natural beauty of the state. If you have an in demand job, the pay scale is very good and couple that with lower home prices, and a buyers market, it is a good place to get into. Detroit is a pit, but it has been for as long as I can remember.

~200k population is okay though 150miles to real big though indeed ugly (judging from google street view) city Detroit is kind of long way.
Dont think "world class beaches" around there can match to florida, california, chicago or orvirginia beaches...

Right now i trying to think of a state, i leave choosing city for bit later.

Grand rapids is awesome, 150 miles to Chicago or Detroit. Downtown Detroit is good for sports, music, food. But yeah not a place to live or shop in. California beaches ok, but FL, Chicago beaches.....heck no. Check out the sleeping bear dunes, and up and down lake michigan, lake superior, it's very nice.

Well if it were me I would exclude Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Ohio.

Mostly because I don't like cold cloudy weather. which is more prominent in the Great Lakes than the northeast.
But also there's not much to these states outside of the major cities. Big ag industry. And a lot less diversity.

Well, here in Indiana, we'd like for our residents to at least be able to communicate properly ... granted, it's not always the case, but in your case, you can keep us on your list.
