I can make an argument for VT, NH, or ME.

I love Portsmouth, NH and Portland, ME, but prefer the state of VT over ME or NH.

I guess i'll go NH for Portsmouth. Close enough proximity to both Boston, Portland, and the White Mountains. Plus, Rye beaches are beautiful.

I live in Oregon and I would choose Washington. It's close and western WA is similar to where I live now.

I live in Texas and I would pick Arkansas because I have family there.

I'm in WA State. There aren't many neighboring states...Oregon and Idaho. I would probably pick Idaho because they are a solid red state and I have a passion for conservative politics.

As a Massachusetts native (living overseas now), this is tough.

CT-I went to college there, and although I used to be down on the state, I've seen some good changes to the place. New Haven has improved and I have friends in Stamford, not to mention the easy access to NYC on Metro North is a bonus.

RI-Providence is a nice city and I loooove Newport.

NY- NY is so big, you can really get a little of everything all in one state. I've lived in NYC once before, and although I liked it, I would be more willing to live in the Westchester area. The towns there have a very New England feel (with better nightlife) and the easy access to NYC is great. But then again, upstate and W New York are beautiful as well.

NH- I've never been a huge fan of the state, but I certainly wouldn't complain if I had to live there. It has a couple nice towns and the White Mountains are nice, but given the choice it would probably be last on my list.

VT - I love Vermont. I love the small towns, the unspoiled nature, the farms that go up the rolling hills along the west side of the state and laws against billboards on the highways. They've done a better job than most at preserving this small towns and I truly appreciate it for that.

So given the choice....hmmm.....I'd probably go with SW Vermont - That way I could make a quick run to Albany to catch the train to NYC or jump on rt 2 and get to Boston.

New York - Upstate would be my first choice, I could move across the lake to Plattsburgh and still be living in a similar region with fairly similar amenties and have easy access to the Adirondacks and Montreal. I like the I-87 corridor of the state.

Massachusetts - Would be my second choice, preferably in the western part. I love the Berkshires. It's a different vibe in out in that part of the state that's fairly detached from Boston. In some ways it reminds me of Vermont.

New Hampshire - Not really on my radar as a place to live, but I could definitely enjoy Portsmouth. It's a beautiful and charming little harbor city that's always been my favorite place in NH.

If given the opportunity to live and work in Quebec and learn French, I'd probably consider it. There's a lot to love up there.

I live in Louisiana. I would choose Texas over Arkansas or Mississippi. Texas is well managed and has a thriving economy. Don't really care much for either of the other states

I'm in South Dakota. I would move to the mountains in Wyoming.
