Of the six cities, from Most Happy to Least Happy:

1. Birmingham, Alabama -- Yep. You read right. We've been here 15 years and it's really a well-kept secret
2. San Diego -- Really nice, but I like to have a change in the weather
3. Chicago -- My hometown. Gotta love the Cubs and the Bears
4. Baltimore -- Spent a lot of time hanging out in Annapolis. Good times.
5. Cleveland -- Eh.
6. Los Angeles -- I'm sorry. And I try to be positive about everywhere I live. Some nice places, but hellish and overcrowded in far too many other places

I've lived in Virginia my whole life- but one part was Northern Virginia. Although I loved NOVA - certain parts, I could NEVER live there again. Its not the same. Its changed. Its not Southern. Its Yankeefied.

I much prefer Richmond.

Virginia: meh, could take it or leave it (so I left it)
North Carolina: Nice state, but it wasn't for me.
New Jersey: Not without its problems, but I've been very happy here.

The only place I have lived (although I've visited MANY places) is Ohio...and I'm ready to leave. Not b/c I don't like where I live or that I'm not happy. I'm happy, but my husband and I need a change...can't wait to see where we'll end up!

Ohio has a bad economy and not a lot to do where I'm from. Just a lot less options than many other states.

My favorite is probably Tulsa,OK very nice people,nice places to shop,excellent restaurants. The worst is Texas,unfriendly people,way too crowded,and worst of all tons of little tree frogs everywhere, in my car, mail box,house! Nebraska is also a desolate wasteland absolutely hated my year there they can even keep their cabbage Runza burgers. lol Anchorage, AK is a very beautiful place and very nice people just cut off from the rest of the US. I am in Macon,Ga now and I hear the crime is bad here but haven't had a prob myself but I also am from a large city and you grow up knowing certain rules like don't venture into the bad section of town after dark,always park in well lit areas,be aware of your surroundings etc. I have been carrying a knife since I was 15 ,only had to pull it once when 3 guys tried to force me in their car in a mall parking lot,it saved my life then.I will also say Macon businesses need to try a little harder all I can say is LESS,less of everything,quality,customer service,cleanliness etc.
