No way. Having other cities or states within a 4 hour drive is a requirement for me.

No, I don't think so. It's too expensive and far from the mainland. Temperatures are also too moderate for my tastes. However, it is a pretty place and I'd like to visit one day though.

I did live there for 2 years, and if money was not an issue i wouldn't hesitate to live there again.

For those of you who keep bringing up road tripping... try boat tripping or sailing (remember $$$ isnt an issue which mean you would be able to afford a nice boat.) Also you'll get way more out of a 2-3 hour road trip in Hawaii than you would on an 8 hour road trip on the mainland. Plus with the islands mountain ranges, the other side of the island feels a world away.

Boating out to a sandbar and playing volleyball or football in the middle of the 78 degree ocean is hard to beat.

Yes, I could picture myself living there. The beaches and green hills look amazing. I'm an aesthetic kind of person and it's the kind of place that I would like to die in.

I wanted to go to school there but it didn't happen since not only would I be in an incredible amount of debt but not even the best colleges there are prestigious at all.

But it's beautiful.

I think "Island Fever" would get the best of me. At least once every two months I like to drive out of my state to another city and hang out just to remind myself that the world is a bigger place than my city.
