I would move to Vegas if it weren't so hot. I love just about everything else about that city, checks every box for me.



How about you?


I have an obvious one:

I would move to SF if it weren't so expensive.

So you're basically asking what's the one big dealbreaker that's keeping you from wanting to move to a particular place?

I'd move to Chicago if it wasn't so cold in the winter.

I'd move to El Paso if it had the jobs I want.

I'd move to Houston if it wasn't so humid.

I'd move to Seattle if it wasn't so cloudy all the time.

I'd move to LA if it wasn't so expensive.

I'd move to Portland or Seattle if winters weren't so gloomy.

I'd move to Virginia if I had any family close by there.

I'd move to Texas if...wait, I already live here.

I'd move to Louisiana if it wasn't the craziest state in the union.

Overall, though, I'm happy where I am.

Cost is kinda cheating - most people would gladly live in the Bay Area or NYC or whatever if they could afford it. These places are obviously conventionally desirable on other metrics.

Here's my answer: I'd move to Cleveland if it weren't in the Midwest - even if it were just a hundred or so miles to the east across the arbitrary political boundary of Pennsylvania. The city's oddly fascinating to me, and it has surprisingly decent public transit considering its size, but I feel a need to escape my home region while I'm still young.

I'd move to Phoenix if it had a comprehensive light rail system. Seems interesting to live in a city that's so diametrically opposite what I'm used to - but I don't want a car anytime soon.

Phoenix is probably another "if it weren't so hot." I find it beautiful.

I'll take Seattle or Portland as it is.
