Bump
Near ocean with mountains within range of wheels, and water not too cold - would be ideal

I don't want to live on the coast, but... Rockland, Maine would be tolerable.

I think any place on the east or west coasts would be a nice place to live. Beaches, seafood, etc. The east has beautiful architecture, Cali. has beautiful weather and great surfing.

East Coast--Maine on down through to Connecticut.

West Coast--Monterey, CA. up to just below Seattle.

And the Baja, particularly around Rosarita.

This looks pretty nice

besides Florida, does anyone have any East Coast oceanfront town examples they like? With older, quaint towns.

Best city with ocean and mountain proximity? ANCHORAGE! ANCHORAGE!! ANCHORAGE!!! But then it says not cold. Hmmm, Seattle perhaps. But although it rarely freezes here we do get a ton of rainy days and it is cold rain too. Average winter lows get annoyingly close to freezing, without getting that extra degree or two to make it freeze. Come summer though it is warm to hot and gorgeous around here!

Rockport, Massachusetts, and the rest of Cape Ann.

The Blue Hill peninsula in Maine (Blue Hill, Castine).
