A great place to raise my family????? My husband interviewed for a job where you can live just about anywhere in the USA. We have the opportunity to live anywhere. We have 2 kids - 4 and 6 years old. We like to bike and walk and play!!! Prefer nice weather, but will endure some winter for a great place. Excellent Schools are a must and a small to medium city near by for stuff to do. Traffic and commutes dont pose a problem for us. We are looking in the 300-400k price range for a home...I am hoping people can help us find a great place to live with all of the above!! Any advice is greatly appreciated!

My husband and I are planning to relocate to Colorado Springs. It is absolutely beautiful and there are so many things to do there!

How about the Pocono Mountains...I must say, I'm a bit partial...lol.

Stop by the Pennsylvania threads, the Poconos is discussed often in the NEPA thread.

Bellingham Washington area has some very good attractions for living there. I’d check it out online and see if it’s a good fit for your needs. The weather isn’t all that cold or hot and you’re close enough to everything a family needs.

Thas a tough choice because there are a few places that if I could, would live. One, being Checotah, Oklahoma. Albany, Wisconsin being another choice.

I've been really looking at Cookeville (or maybe even Crossville)Tn. Great cost of living, beautiful scenery, and moderate climate year round. The city is just big enough to provide everything I find necessary, but if I want to whoop it up someplace fancy, four different large cities are only a two hour drive away. If I get tired of whoopin' it up in the big cities I can head out to any one of the fantastic nearby state parks, or on over to the smokies for some serious outdoor activities. I'm just counting the days!

I recently moved to Gorham Maine just outside of Portland. I hope to never leave here. There is more than a little winter but put that in the natural cycle of the year-- spring, summer, indian summer, fall, early and late winter...and it is glorious. Low crime, scenic beauty, ocean, city amenities, rural values.....I can't recommend it enough.
