I don't typically associate tv/movies with places unless it plays a central role (and honestly only if it's non-fiction). New Mexico gets a pass from me on Breaking Bad.

The thing is though that a lot of baby boomer are going to retire in the next 20 years, and my bet is they will move away from large coastal cities toward places with nice geographies and COL. There's been waves of people moving from CA to CO to retire for years now, and I think the trend will only intensify as this demographic bubble exits the workforce.

I don't think companies will be able to backfill people into the roles vacated by high ranking boomers in high COL coastal cities at the pace they will be moving out.

The crime rate, when looking at total violent and property crimes, is through the roof for NM. It's one of the worst states for crime in the nation. That being said, there's plenty of areas that have that Rocky Mountain charm and beauty that Colorado has, but without the cost / congestion. And the culture is really unique as well.

I'd vote for the Ozarks being a place that grows / improves quite a bit over the next 40 years. Looking 40 years back, they were pretty empty and economically dead. There wasn't a real big tourist market there. But the area has grown quite a bit percentage wise. I don't see any reason for this trend to slow. There's cities starting to develop there and the area is surrounded by plenty of people who live in less geographically interesting locations and would want to WFH or retire there.
