I moved to Kansas City, Mo. early last year after living most of my life in Central New York. Missouri is OK, but I REALLY miss Upstate New York. The people are friendlier, and it's a far more beautiful state than any I've seen. I love the proximity to several major cities, Canada, and New England states. Will move back with my wife in a couple of years.

I see you've noticed this as well. I am from Connecticut and currently live in KC and the people are not my cup of tea either.

I love living in North Carolina. My favorite by far.

Ohio was okay. It was pretty, but way too cold and snowy. And it just didn't feel like home.

I hated living in northern Virginia, Texas and Oklahoma.

Arrow Going Home SOON!

I have lived in Japan, Florida, Virginia, Hawaii, and was raised in NJ. Spent summers in El Paso, and Tennesee. I have seen Mexico, and for all of the times I have ran from NJ, because it seemed to be the "thing" to do, I cannot wait to get back, and stay there forever.
I have lived in South Texas for the past 6 years, and I am ready to chew off my foot to get out of here.

Unhappy: Texas (Houston) and Utah (Salt Lake City)
Happiest: Florida (Miami) and California (Southern Cal).

I was straight miserable in Texas. Very hot and dry. Dull. The people were nice, albeit, many of them were "toolboxes" and there was a strong undeserved sense of superiority over the other states, especially California.
Utah was very depressing and boring. There is absoultely no point in living in Downtown Salt Lake since there is absolutely no downtown feel. The people were fake, and naive.

It was fun living in Miami, maybe too much. Big party, lets get comatose mentality among the young people. Many under 18 who happen to get into clubs conveniently. Very college feel throughout, although a lot of people dont even go to school. Very relaxed atmosphere. But too humid for me.

Southern California is the absolute best. Which is why I chose it over Miami which I could have moved to as well.
San Diego is paradise. Very relaxed lifestyle. Alot of partying, but very classy. Great weather. You're either making bank, or scrounging by here. Transportation system is great and everything is within 15 minutes reach.
Los Angeles requires alot of patience. The things to do are endless. Great weather. Very freeway oriented (if you live here, you navigate by freeways). Traffic sucks. Something for everyone. You're either someone, or no-one in LA. But theres no central nightlife scene, rather alot of spots scattered around. You feel like a small spec in the middle of the universe. So its definitely not for everybody.

Happiest ever: Mendocino county CA, when it was all still beautiful farmland. I loved it dearly.

Most Miserable: Beijing China. Absolutely hellish. Bless America and the passport which allows me to flee such places.
