Default Which of these states would you want or not want to live in

If you could live in either tennessee, kentucky, west virginia, virginia,
north carolina, south carolina, georgia, or alabama.

which state, then which city would you choose & why.

if you wouldn't want to live in any of those places then why wouldn't you.

I'm contemplating on making a move somewere to the southeast & just curious what some of the answers, or winners & losers might be.

or just for shirts and grins list in order 1-8 which would be your most favorable to least favorable.

my choice would be middle to eastern tn, allthough wv is really nice but too darn cold.

thanks.

Williamsburg Virginia. Gone there on many vacations, it's cute, charming, woodsy...not TOO expensive.

WV has affordable housing but the tax burden is high. Georgia has nice new houses for $200k if you can afford that. NC is becomming too much like Florida, avoid. Virginia is too expensive.

I think if it were me, I'd choose Virginia first because I've lived there and absolutely loved it. Then I'd choose Tennessee, then Kentucky, then North Carolina (western part), and then South Carolina (coastal) and then West Virginia. Georgia and Alabama would be my last choices because of the climate being too hot for my tastes and also the megalopolis growing in Atlanta, Georgia.

Ditto. I grew up in Virginia and have lived in North Carolina and Georgia and traveled to most of the other states and I'm just not a fan.

As much as I'd hate to say it considering how much I loathe the DC area where I grew up and currently live (and am escaping from next month), of all of the choices, if I had to pick one, it would probably be the Northern Virginia suburbs of DC.
