If you were leaving the state you live in now and only had bordering states to choose from to move to which would you choose and why? I'd pick New Mexico because I like the people and the weather.

My state borders Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and New York. I've long debated whether I would want to start a life in the NYC area or the Boston area, but now I think I might want to start a family out West in California or Nevada. I'm still 25 so I actually have plenty of time to ponder my choices.

Virginia. Its the most similar state to NC in terms of geographic diversity. You have the mountains..... the piedmont ..coastline. Vibrant metropolitan areas..... interesting small towns in both the mountains, and along the Chesapeake. Similar weather.... a bit more snow (i dont mind that)

Definitely Oregon. Portland is a cool city - though I didn't find it overwhelmingly "weird" when I went compared to other cities; the weirdness is just maybe spread over a larger percentage of neighborhoods. I have a few friends there (and in the Eugene/Corvallis area), too.

I haven't gotten around to seeing Boise yet, but Reno was too small for me and Boise isn't that much bigger.

Though as of late I've kinda been romanticizing living in a small town and focusing on my creative work (but then Oregon has small towns too). I can't imagine I could deal with that for longer than a few months, though.

In Ohio, I'd probably choose Michigan due to family there and the nice environment, though the areas around Philly in Eastern PA are cool also.

I live in Georgia, and I'd move to South Carolina.

I'm in NC, and I would not care to live in any of the bordering states. If I really had to choose though: VA.

I'm in Florida so I have two options and would definitely choose Georgia.

I live in NJ and have the choice of DE, NY and PA. I would definitely pick New York.

I'm in Iowa and would pick Wisconsin, hands down. I like the culture, the cities, and the outdoor recreation opportunities.

Minnesota is fairly nice, and the Twin Cities have great amenities, but the people are pricks and the weather is even worse than Iowa.

Nebraska is a lot like Iowa but even more conservative.

Missouri is my second choice. I like the cities and the Ozarks a lot, but I give Wisconsin a slight edge on people.

Illinois is a lot like Iowa with a massive metro area. Not a fan of Chicagoloand folks as much, but could get used to amenities.

South Dakota is probably 3rd choice. The Black Hills are cool.

I could realistically live and be happy in any neighboring state.
